he said keep roberts because as long as he is leading off he should be solid.
he said keep derek lee because he is having a break out season and the lone big bat in the chicago lineup.
he said keep jon garland because he is finally healthy.
he said that thome and bonds are not healthy. trade them.
he also said that randy is not 100% and could have a lingering groin injury aka he is not healthy....trade him.
common sense for some....
And all I am saying is who wants these old broken down guys? You will get absolutely nothing for them. At this point, you have to hope they return to form or have a hot stretch at which point you can then trade them.
I don't dispute the keepers. I like Garland, but he isn't going to go 30-0. He could pull a Cliff Lee just as easily over the next 10 starts.
I think Lee is solid and Roberts is doing well, but seriously...is he going to hit .370 all year? It doesn't happen much these days, and I don't know if Brian Roberts is a premier hitter in this league.
Basically Reynolds was just doing a Hot or Not with players that were obviously doing good or bad. He did not think of it in a fantasy baseball sense, and ESPN drummed it up as something "fantasy baseballers HAVE to know." That was why I thought it was stupid. If you like selling stocks that are now at 5 that were worth 30 with the possibility they could hit 15 or 20 in the future...that's not sound.
