ESPN thinks Eddie will be traded by the All Star break.

Thanks. That makes a lot of sense. Makes him a good in season pickup. Don't know that I would want to draft him.

Tracy is solid, but I don't think he's any better then where he's going. Young's spring has been bad, but they aren't playing in Petco yet. One member said as a #5 or 6, I dunno about that. If he's your #6, you're doing pretty well.

Well, young was the 6th SP I drafted (see below). If my top two were healthy I'd say I was doing well. Since they do have some issues, I am a little worried about my staff holding up and coming through for me. So I am not quite sure saying Young as a #5/6 SP means you are doing well. Young should be at the end of your fantasy rotation otherwise he is a gamble IMO.

The only interesting one to me is Soriano RP from Seattle. Anyone have inside knowledge on him? Backup closer for Guardado?


Guy was rounding into a K monster and closer-in-waiting before having the dreaded TJ elbow surgery at the end of the '04 season. He actually made it back for a few games at the end of '05, and fared reasonably well, if not spectacular.

If he's healthy, he'll be money in a holds league, an OK relief insert in deep leagues, and possible insurance for a midseason Guardado deal.

He's listed as co-setup with Putz (they're both righties; M's are pretty much toast for lefty relief help outside Guardado), but Soriano will get the ninth inning if Eddie's dealt.

Don't worry. He is in a pitchers park now.

That should knock it down to and 18.23 ERA.
