Yeah, but why would you want him? He's out for awhile, and it'll take some time to get him back in the groove.... so what's the point?
I'm back. Sorta.

Hmm some low priced players I got recently

Carlos Lee ( Got of WW )
Richie Sexson ( Got in cheap trade )
Chipper Jones ( Another cheap trade )
Mark Prior ( An even cheaper trade )

I picked him up in FA... had no DL already so I took him.

What would be considered cheap for Huff?

I just traded for Huff and I think I'm fairly close to getting Carlos Lee.

I'd trade for Vernon Wells, but is stinking it up on my team.

I can't see some of those going cheap. Like Tejeda, Renteria, Giambi, ARod... or even Nomar.


Yeah, agreed. For the most part a first rounder is a first rounder.

Bobby Crosby

What about Bobby Crosby?? In most of my leagues, he has been dropped. He has been horrific so far, but I personally think he may have a huge upside...

L. Castillo (I traded B. Roberts for him)

J. Rollins (I traded S. Burroughs for him)

:-?

I agree with Ichiro, V. Wells and how about J. Vidro and A. Berroa?

In deeper leagues (16 teams etc) I would go after R. Winn, B. Wilkerson, M. Byrd, Moyer, Washburn, Mantei...

burroughs for rollins?? sorry but that is a terrible trade jimmy rollins should be on no team, and certainly not traded for, maybe picked up. and the castillo for roberts deal is a wash at best roberts did this all last year too hes a solid player and castillo doesnt steal like he used to.

That is not good tactics no matter how low you got them, unless you have unlimited DL spots.

I've got those 3 in 1 league and it's killing me because hitters can play unlimited games. I'm seriously thinking of dropping 1 to the WW which would pain me even more but I can't see a way out.

Russ Ortiz - he's been killing my team, I would consider offers. But then I sit back and say it's only May 4.
