dont waist ur time tho, i just picked him up so im predicting 0-5 next game :-°


Even if he starts turning it on he still isn't as good as a lot of SS's you can find on the FA wire. At least in my points league


Kindly name these SS's that you refer to.

Yeah, I would like to hear the names that are better than Peralta on the waiver wire, when Peralta turns it on.

In my league at least.

Freddy Sanchez, David Eckstein, and Hanley Ramirez all have about 100 points more then Fartalta.

I acquired Carlos Guillen and dumped Peralta last week, but Peralta cleared waivers and nobody picked him up. I'm a little worried about Guillen's health over the rest of the year, so now I don't know what to do since I don't have a spot or anyone worth dropping to pick Peralta back up.

Problem is that it's a 10 player league and I can't trade Guillen since he's near the bottom in terms of rankings of the SS's already owned.

By that logic, there must be 10-15 first basemen on your free agent list better than Teixiera. Not saying that Peralta is Teixiera, but my point is that unless you think the first two months of this year has shown the real Peralta, then you can't just go by a bad start of the season. If you managed your team based on the hot hand so far, you'd be in trouble.

So if and when he turns it on, you'd rather have Freddy Sanchez or David Eckstein??

Peralta is a SS who hit 24 homeruns in 141 games last year. And, he's 24 years old! The only thing holding him back is his plate discipline, and that will improve with age and experience.

True, we aren't talking about a keeper league, but even in a regular league i'd still much rather have Peralta than Eckstein or Sanchez, or even Ramirez, who I didn't mention just becuase he has 40 steal potential and Peralta doesn't run at all.

Peralta had one good season with a ton of k's. Its different in everyone's league but even with those 24 hr's he only had 250 points in my points league. Furcal had 380 so Its a big difference.

If Peralta turns it on he's worth picking up WHILE hot. but waiting for him is pretty hard. He heated up in the summer last year but so far no luck

He hit a HR today ;-D

I don't want to get too excited, but it looks like Peralta might be back :)

Over the past 6 games Peralta brought his AVG from .222 to .250 while hitting 2 jacks 3 doubles and 6RBi..... So glad someone in my league dropped him last week ...FOUND GOLD!!!
