I know, I know, this guy has been talked about as much as Allen Iverson and Larry Brown.

But, I wonder if this guy is worth trying to pry away from his owner? I am sure that his owner is frustrated.

What does this board think?

Depends on your fantasy team doctors... :-D

If you can get him for a song and have the roster spot to spare, he's worth a flyer and could certainly help you down the road.

If you'd have to pay anything approaching pre-season value and/or have a tight roster, it's not worth the risk.

I love Alou, I had him the last two seasons but I got fed up! He's got a minor injury, I can't even put him on DL, he plays again without prior notice, he has the best games sitting on my bench!

But when he was playing he was great! Just don't get an OF with Larry Walker and Moises Alou, it would drive you nuts! And don't mention Barry Larkin, please!

Yes I had Barry Larkin last year. The problem with Alou and Walker is that their upside is stud material, but at the same time, owners end up all stressed out if they see that they didn't play that day.

That is why guys like Sammy Sosa are so valuable. When is the last time Sosa was on the DL? I cannot remember. I hope that I didn't jinx him.

Sosa was last on the DL last year. Because he sneezed.
