when will it be time to nab him in a keeper league? we don't have a minor league roster, but we have 12 bench spots so we have the room to stash guys. i have heard he will get the call anywhere between this summer and july 06. anyone have some insight? i don't want to miss out but i also don't want to carry him on my bench for over a year.

I hear he doesn't play third that well and may be moved. Wouldn't that lower his value? Hybrid is the man with that answer.

You've got to think he'll be moved considering they drafted Alex Gordon recently. I'm not sure where he'll be moved, Hybrid might know. Though I can tell you he is killing the baseball in high A right now ;-D

i think he will be worth owning even if he plays outfield. i am more concerned with when he will get the call and whether or not i should pick him up now or waita bit. i feel like he was under the radar up until the last month or so and now i'm more concerned that other owners will catch on...

Well picking him up or not really all depends on who has been taken so far and the odds of him being taken by someone else. I can't say much more about that since I'm not familiar with your situation.

The kid will not be called up this year at all (he is still in A ball), the only remote chance would be a Sept. call up and I wouldn't even think they would do that. Also yeah he will defiantly be moved from 3B, saying he doesn't play 3rd to well ... is being really nice, you could say much worse about his defense. He should be converted to a 1B/DH, as he gets to higher levels in the minors.

d. meyer
morales

e. santana - mine
j. foppert - mine (got him and ervin in case i want to use them this week for a spot start. i'm not sold long-term)

(doumit and weeks are also taken, although they aren't technically minor leaguers now)

here's my team:

C JD Closser
1B Derek Lee
2B Alfonso Soriano
3B Eric Chavez
SS Carlos Guillen

I would probably drop lopez, foppert, or ervin for butler if i were to stash him now. what do you think now? anyone better i should be eyeing?
