Anybody selling high on Bedard?

I don't know what I should try to target if I do...

I really like the kid but I am SP heavy and just picked up Harang too.

Don't be like Harold Reynolds here ... you're not going to get much for a guy on the DL no matter how good he's been. ;-)

Little late to sell high on him now.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Trading Bedard right now would be borderline retarded IMO.

I'm guessing that in most leagues, Bedard was a free agent at some point. It's tough to sell a free agent pick up for anything valuable in return unless 1. the owner that want's him is a believer, 2. the owner is an idiot or 3. the owner is desperate for pitching.

How would the other owner be an idiot? This is another common misconception in fantasy baseball. Just because a player was undrafted doesn't mean he doesn't have value or won't continue to play well. You should treat player values as fluid and don't be bitter that you didn't snag player x or y off the wire before someone else. The old "oh you just picked that guy off the wire a week ago, I could have had him for free" argument doesn't make any sense. Player x is no longer free, deal with it. Evaluate his worth from here on out, because your past actions are sunk costs and cannot be recovered.

Play for the rest of the season unless you're one of 3 leagues out there that use retroactive stats.

few days before Bedard and Javy went down, I traded Loaiza, Bedard and Javy Lopez for Ivan Rodriguez, Wade Miller and Brad Penny. Not too high but not low either.

That is why most "players" lose year in and year out. They have no clue on how to evaluate a player's value to their team.

Sounds like it was a pretty square deal at the time...of course you made out like blazes with the injury to Javy.
