Noah Lowry! He had a great 2nd half this year, and he's about to settle in for a nice run now that he's had a few starts after his injury. He ooked fantastic today! ;-D

do you think it would be smart to trade Prince Fielder for Helton if I can get it (i, know wrong forum...but I trust the floks here more).

Do you think Fielder will slow donw considerably in the 2nd half, and sexon pick it up?

If you can get Helton, who usually has a great 2nd half, for the rookie Fielder you for sure do that.

Chipper is usually a bit better in the second half. He was solid down the stretch last year and was great in the second half two years ago after a horrible start due to a hamstring problem. Career splits:

AVG OBP SLG OPS
.294 .391 .523 .913 Pre-allstar
.313 .413 .551 .964 Post-allstar

Not sure what to make of Kelvim Escobar given that he has been both a starter and a closer and has had injury issues but his splits are interesting:

ERA WHIP BAA
4.79 1.50 .273 Pre
3.82 1.30 .235 Post

Yea, lots of people will be better in the second half.

This happens every year and they are well-known juicers. Early on in the season they still check too often but as soon as the All-Star game is over, the needles come out.

Bonds will have a MVP second half.

Yeah, he'll be killer around the holidays.

pretty much the same as others:

tex
helton
aram

and im going to add pierre to the list, because once lee is back, and aram is hitting again,he'll get driven in more (assuming he can actually get on base)

Nobody, its just a fluke of numbers that says someone is a 2nd half player instead of a 1st half. Any established player that had a bad first half is generally going to be a good buy low candidate.

Once DLee is back i think he will. Soriano will keep nailing the ball.

I disagree personally. I agree with 'buying low' on Helton. I also agree with 'selling high' on fielder. However, i learned the hard way when buying low or selling high on players you do one OR the other in a deal NOT both in the same deal.

just my opinion,
