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.

Obviously they're talking about completely different level players and they were all over the board on that but I think they're all "High Value" players with regard to where you may pick them. I'm kind of pissed they mentioned Hardy and Soriano...


What's with Hardy? Little power, no speed, low BA, OBP. He doesn't look roster worthy to me.
