What, like David Wright, Derek Jeter or Jose Reyes?

I was actually trying to trade him since I'd have to keep him as a major leaguer if he goes over 130ab before Aug. 21st and I only get to keep 6 major leaguers. If he breaks out enough though he might have to get consideration for my 6th keeper slot since my other options (Crede, Youkilis, R. Soriano) aren't all that exciting. :-?

If those are your only options, I'd have to seriously consider keeping Milledge. He defiantly has more potential and even if he doesn't reach it, those guys are to exciting options. Maybe you could deal one of them w/ Milledge for an upgraded 6th keeper.

Doubtful on that...I've been shopping all of my players for upgrades to my draft for next year as I'm in a rebuilding year and haven't had any bites so far. There's pretty much zero interest in any of them.

My other option is to buy a player with picks which I may still do. I'm always putting out feelers to try and pick up a solid #6 guy. I had 6 solid guys this year (Rolen was my 6th) but I got an offer I couldn't refuse and dealt him away right when D. Lee went down to the guy that had Lee which made sense not just because of what I got in return but also because Alex Gordon is on my farm team. ;-D

If you read Moneyball you come away with the impression that this isn't a New York thing as much as a league-wide problem. Billy Beane was supposedly going to fix this problem with his approach to the draft but honestly I'm not sure they've had a better success ratio than the other teams in baseball. For every Nick Swisher they've produced there's been several Jeremy Brown's as well.

I don't think the ratio will be fixed until the crystal ball is perfected. You really never know who will and who won't make it. I wonder if the New York thing is just because of more media attention to those teams? There really are some terrible names up there though.......ouch!!!!
