I havent seen anyone mention Juan Pierre as a buy low canidate. This guy has been very consistant the last 3 years and is bound to get in the groove.

Pierre should be a buy low candidate, but he seems to be performing just well enough... I couldn't get him in a deal in my points league. The owner substituted Edmonds instead and the deal was done.

How bout a couple of power starved Seattle OF??

Jeremy Reed and Randy Winn. No homers between them and they have not really started to run yet. They are both much better than they have shown. Randy Winn, in particular has been very consistent over the past three years and I would expect him to reach his 3 yr. averages. That's alot of good stats still to come.

How about Aramis Ramirez... this guy is not gonna hit .228 all year... he should get his average up to about .285 with 30+ HR and 90+ RBI...
