Sell High: Jamie Moyer

I figured he is a good sell high candidate. Anybody else trying to shop him around? I am just curious what type of player you are getting in return.

Yeah, he might be a high sell, but I have no clue how to gauge player talent. I have him in two leagues myself.

If his control is back to being solid and the HR's stay away, he could actually be pretty good with that offense. So, I guess I'm a little gunshy at this point.

I totally disagree

Jamie Moyer typically will do well through the rest of the year if he starts out really well

His track record shows that he's a 17-20 game winner with a low 3.something ERA. Last year was a fluke with a much worse team than this years.

I don't think you should try to sell him high, his value is still quite lowe from last year, he is a good bargain.

By and large, most don't believe in him. Therefore, it will be hard to "sell high." Instead, hold onto him and enjoy 10th round value off the waiver wire.

Agreed. If you're playing with experienced FBers it'll probably be a tough sell to sell high but if you can by all means do it.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

If you can pull off Dunn for Moyer/P Wilson, way to go.
