The guys I'm looking at are more marginal guys with upside like Drew, Rowand, Kearns.


I would hope most gusy wouldn't even give up these "marginal" players so early. First of all, they are all all better than "marginal". Second, if they went for guys with health risks like Drew or Kearns, they aren't going to give up on him based on a slow start. They were obviously high on their performance being worth the risk.

but is oliver perez really that good?

I am thinking of trying to offer a livan hernandez type or something lowball like that. but I am a little leery of him too, to be honest.

Rolen is off to a pretty weak start.

Not many people would put Vazquez in the quality guys list.

I'd say Vaz and O-Cab. Both have low value now but will bring you profit if you get them at what their perceived value is now.

Magglio Ordonez has been sickly. He hasn't had a lot of at bats, but he hasn't got a hit yet. If he takes a bit to get back in a groove with his timing, you may be able to steal him.
