I don't think so for 05. There will be others in FA who will be better than him.

Bingo. The question then becomes, what are you holding the No. 1 priority for?
Unless you're hoping for Delmon or some owner in your league to kick Beltran to the curb, Felix probably has as much upside as anyone coming along in the next month.

i dont know that there will be a better callup than felix but i would hold the #1 waiver position in case someone decent gets dropped. i think felix is going to have a similar experience to ervin santana--looks great in some games and looks like a kid in others.

It is nice to see that not everyone got caught up in the blind hype that we are seeing in some of the other threads here.

I agree. I thought it funny that the Yahoo news update mentioned Felix would be the first teenager to start an MLB game since.....Todd Van Poppel.

We all remember how awesome he was right? :-/

Not saying Felix is destined to be Van Poppel-esque, but I'll be waiting to see how he does after a few MLB starts.

Course, I have a nice lead in my league so I don't need to risk it just yet, but if your team is floundering for pitching, give him a shot.
