Buy Low....Who do you like?

I just traded Tom Glavine for Juan Pierre a great sell high buy low example. What other slow starters can be picked up for cheap?

Great trade! I think Sheets can still be had for cheap. Oliver Perez is good if you don't spend too much in a deep league. The Ramirez boys (Manny & Aramis) are starting slow. Doug Davis would be a nice guy to get at this point, I'm sure some manager is hating him.

ARam owners are getting nervous and you might even get someone to unload Teixiera. Some guys might be panicking about Marcus Giles right now. And Carlos Zambrano hasn't exactly been impressive so far (considering where he was probably drafted).

Why would you think that? Why would someone hang onto him, watch him pitch lights out in his first two starts, and then deal him for cheap?

I just don't see it...

Manny, ARam, Vlad, Tex, Utley, Ichiro, Reyes, Kent, Sexson, Sizemore... I can see owners being down on those guys to some extent...

Well, Sheet's 1st start wasn't awesome and he has also injury concern.

I just traded B. Myers and Jenks for Sheets. Not sure how much of a 'buy low' that was, though. Can't imagine Sheets owners asking much less than that. Most are probably wanting more.

It was a very good start on the road against the #1 team in the national league.

And 0 walks in 2 starts=studly

I don't see any of those guys as buy cheap candidates. Anyone who is worth their salt isn't gonna give up on those guys.

Doug Davis is a decent candidate, but are you gonna dump Manny?

I think decent really buy cheap candidates are....
Davis
Shawn Green
Bartolo Colon
Chipper Jones
Sheets to a point, but I certainly wouldn't be trading him if I had him.
Tim Hudson
It's possible to get Zambrano cheaper, but still not a great deal IMO.
Jose Guillen
Mags
Sexson and Konerko...but that seems to be the case every year.
