Will Delmon Get Called Up This Season?

The rays should just trade Young for two starting pitchers because his production will be useless. Raise you hand if you think the devil rays will sign a pitcher better than Hideo Nomo this offseason.

The Rays are terrible because of their owner. Naimoli is terrible and needs to sell the team. The Rays have great prospects but without signing a few free agents here and there, the team is never going to break the .500 barrier.

In our league, we are allowed to add guys to our major league roster before they hit yahoo, but we have to hold an empty roster spot. Should I drop Delmon and pickup the King? its a 12 team 5X5 8 keeper league. Sorry to hijack the thread. I'll also put this in the waivers forum.

Felix Hernandez.

Anyways I'd keep Delmon, him and Felix are close but when in doubt I always go with the hitter.

I think at this point, even if they brought him up now, DY would not qualify as a Super Two, so I don't think the arbitration clock should have any effect on their decision. My guess is that he'll get another couple of weeks, and if he's still hitting well, they'll give him 6 weeks or so in the majors.

Personally, I think the reason for the delay is that they don't want him to lose rookie status for next year. Having DY win ROY in 2006 would be something the Rays would market extensively. So giving him 200 PA this season, which would eliminate his rookie status for next year, doesn't help them. My guess is they bring him up so that he gets about 100-120 PA and is still eligible for the award in 2006.

I've got him down for 15/20 with 65 RBI and around .775 OPS next year. He could do a lot better than that, but he is just 20. I agree with the statement above about pitching vs hitting prospects-go with the everyday player. 'There is no such thing as a pitching prospect' didn't get to be a cliche by accident.

sweet Jesus don't drop Delmon...that's like dropping Pujols for Santana...not bad, but stick with the hitters

Where was this heard that Felix would be up next week?
