Berkman

Postby BigMusky » Thu May 12, 2005 6:15 pm

I have been burned one too many seasons because I have a stud Outfielder that comes back from an injury and I end up holding onto him too long hoping for him to return to form and usually doesnt. Should I move on or have some more faith in Berkman?

You read RotoWorld don't you?

The industry advice is to sell Berkman high now rather then wait for Preston Wilson syndrome to set in.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

sure...why not. I already have the best outfield without him. He would have start really be crushing the ball to break my lineup anyway.

Edmonds/Abreu/Guillen/Lee in an NL only league.

Well then your question should be which OF do I trade and how low could I go on Berkman.

I recently got Matt Clement for him and I was pretty desperate to trade him. I didn't have any outfield spots and needed pitching terribly.

I just used him as part of a bigger deal where I sent Oswalt/Berkman/Sweeney/Rusch for Pujols/S.Green/Pavano/Hermanson. I think I did quite well in this deal as I sold high on Berkman and Sweeney.

Selling...high? To me, this sounds like selling low. But each to their own. I just don't get the Preston Wilson comparison. Wilson is older. Berkman is younger. Wilson has a balky knee. Berkman tore his ACL playing, um, flag football. Berkman has always been one of the best hitters in the NL. Wilson needs the Coors effect to be a decent hitter. But, yeah, Preston Wilson syndrome. Better sell high. O:-) ;-7
