Steve Finley should blow up any game now, should be able to get him pretty cheap.

By buy low, I mean lower than what he will produce. Note that there will be buy lows of different levels here. Also, there are some guys that I wouldn't even want on my roster here...but I'll list them anyway, since the idea is below what they will eventually be valued by most people's standards.

C
V. Martinez
Piazza
Posada

Kendall
Estrada

1B
Helton
Thome

Maybe Delgado (lack of power thus far...you can buy by talking about how Florida saps power perhaps...there was a snippet from Rotoworld about that)
Huff (3B, OF)
Hafner

Casey

2B
M. Giles
Reyes (lack of steals)
B. Boone
K. Matsui
Not many buy lows here...Giles is probably the only one REALLY pursuing, but it's a thin position to begin with.

3B
Beltre
Rolen
Er. Chavez
Blalock

Maybe Lowell

SS
Furcal (average wise)
Renteria
O. Cabrera

OF
Beltran (say that he won't run)
Abreu (low average, but is stealing. Would be perfect buy low had he not stolen six bases)
Crawford
Pierre
V. Wells
C. Lee

Drew (though a week or two ago would've been more effective)
P. Wilson
B. Giles
Griffey, Jr.
A. Jones
You can try Berkman...
Finley
Walker
Kearns
Hidalgo
Magglio
if you want a huge question mark and don't mind the risk

DH
Durazo

SP
R. Johnson's value is relatively low, compared to where he was drafted
Schilling
Sheets
K. Wood
Mussina

If you want Zito, go ahead
Ol. Perez was a good buy low before his last start
L. Hernandez
Weaver
K. Brown

J. Westbrook

RP
Foulke
Mota

Kolb, if you want him
Takatsu
Take a shot for Eric Gagne...talk about how suspicious you are of the injury.
Isringhausen with a guy who may not have enough DL slots?
Stashing Benitez on the DL isn't a bad idea if you have the spot. Same with JoeBo.

Edit: I bolded the players I'd most want to take a shot to trade for right now.[/b]

Barry Zto :-D :-D ;-D ;-D ;-D :-t :-t

but seriously if you can get Zito ULTRA cheap he is worth it

I still got him down for

15 Wins
3.75 ERA
1.20 whip
170 K's

now i just wait for slomo to come and say why he sucks!

then i get to agree ya he sucks, but he is still good because even though that is impossible

in the case of Barry Zito
he is the only man that ever lived who sucked but was good. :-D

the thing is, its hard to buy low on a first round draft pick. I am a helton owner, and I know he will come around. I also know that his replacement that would come to me in a deal would probably have a ceiling that was like helton's floor -- not worth moving.

I think the best buy low guys are the guys with talent, but for one reason or another have growing pains, or guys that have a little more doubt.

I don't think you are getting a delgado "low" he is still hitting .300 isn't he?
