I would dump Eric Byrnes for Paulie. Byres has hit the crapper the last few weeks, and will not figure into the Oakland outfield as much since the acquisition of Jose Guillen. Ride Konerko while the Sox are hot, and hope that he picks up his form from last year.

I'll 2nd the notion for Byrnes. Konerko is way better than Byrnes right now.

I believe I have everything to do with Konerko's recent surge. I drafted him and suffered through his crap performance all the way til right after the All Star. Now that he's off my pathetic team, he's obviously been able to see the ball and hit his HR's.

Thanks for nothing Paulie! :-o :-P

Jump on Konerko. Byrnes is finished.

Dump Burrell or Byrnes

Postby MushuCrew » Fri Aug 01, 2003 1:32 pm

I would dump Burrell and Byrnes. Burrell needs to go to AAA to work on his swing or sit down with Schmidt and figure out what he is doing wrong this year. I also had Burrell and Konerko and just picked up Konerko right before the break and immediately put him in the lineup after the break ;-D

Byrnes is done especially with the Guillen acquisition, he'll probably be platooning with someone since he's been cold as ice of late. Sure did hit the wall hard. Who else is available on the wire?

tony batista, catalanotto, bradley, berroa, burnitz, podsednik, tucker, sanders, relaford, matos.

gordon, escobar, jerome williams, tim redding,

i really want frank, cause hes supposed to be really good in august. im in the hunt for kaz sasaki too. i have 3rd waiver priority.

i dont really want to dump burrell because he was my 4th rounder. i wanna keep him just to be safe. konerko did it, burrell might take the frickin advice and go do his job.

If you have the room for another pitcher, pick up Jerome Williams. There's no reason why he should stillbe on the waiver wire in any league!

Man he is really tempting!! But I don't know if I can place Konerko in my UT spot over Hatsui or Hidalgo. I can't place him in my 1B slot because that belongs solely to Giambi. Maybe I should just stash him so my opponents can't grab him?
