That said, would you touch him if you had bench space and he could be had in the 18th round or for $3 in your draft? Or not?
8-o For that price/draft spot everyone should want him.

For that price, I would jump all over him. ;-D

Can anyone say Mariners?


Naw that would never happen.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Believe it or not, he actually was drafted in the 18th in my main league this past season, pre-injury. You see......we count batter K's as a negative stat! So guys like Glaus, Dunn, P. Wilson, Jose Hernandez, etc, are not highly sought after in our league.

I would definitely take him in the 18th round or for $3; despite his limitations he would be a great guy to have on your bench since he definitely does have power--probably better than anything on the WW if you have a 3B or U injury. And he would make great trade bait if heats up.

My point was that people like to talk about him as top 3B, but if consider BA when looking at his total value, it things do not look so good, even with all the HRs. It is more that he is overvalued rather than he has no value.

I think the Yank's should sign free agent Todd Walker for 2B, and leave A-Rod and jeter right where they are. ;-D

LOL. No thanks. :-) I actually like Cairo a lot and hope that George doesn't go name hunting at 2B. He should just go after some starting pitching. ;-D

the braves have their future star 3b in their farm..
his name is andy marte.

they will not block marte even more by getting glaus.

chipper will play there till marte is ready..

ps. should be a sept call up for marte.
