I expect him to be available as soon as tomorrow, with Thursday being the absolute latest. Maybe I'm giving Yahoo too much credit... :-°

Are Kemp and Ethier splitting time in left? I'd say Milledge because he will play every day for the next month or longer. Although, Kemp would probably put up better numbers if he were playing every day. So many young guys... so few roster spots.

In a fantasy baseball non keeper league this year I do not seem him haveing great value. He has the talent to be a GREAT player.. but alot fo people have talent and dont do anything. Unless yor starting an absolute scrub, you might want to pick him up. BUt if you have anyone of any worth at his position I wouldnt make any moves for him...non keeper of course! keeper im all over hiM!

Two questions for the people very familiar with Milledge:
1) Does it look like he's going to stick past the one month Nady will be out (reason being that I can't keep him as a minor leaguer if he goes over 130ab's before August 21st)?
2) Is he good enough at this point to warrant keeping him in a league where we only keep 6 major league players (14 team so the top 84 players are kept)?

I'd almost rather trade him now while the hype is high if it looks like I can't keep him as a minor leaguer. I can't see how a first full-year guy with Milledge's background is going to get into the top 84 players in overall value in 2007 but I'd be interested to see what the people more familiar with Milledge think of my situation.

Tough to say. They've started the clock so there is nothing preventing them from shuttling him back and forth now. I say it entirely depends on how well Milledge does. If he is raking there is no way they send him back down.

No way would I rank him in the Top 84 right now so I say no. I'd try and use the prospect hype to swing a deal.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

IMO, the only reason he is up is because Nady is hurt. When Nady comes back, Milledge goes to AAA. Two scenarios where Milledge stays in the majors longer than expected:

1) Nady takes longer to come back from his injury than the 3-4 weeks everyone is saying.

2) The Mets trade Cliff Floyd.


He could pull a Sizemore and become one of the top 84, but his minor league numbers (and spot in the order) don't point to that.

Thanks you two...that's pretty much what I was thinking looking at the minor league numbers. I made the same type of deal with Howie Kendrick earlier in the year...that one looks like it didn't work out (he ended up hitting like crap and getting sent back down) but I'd rather be wrong and get something out of the player than have the guy succeed while still on my minor league roster and end up getting 'rewarded' by not being able to keep him as a minor leaguer and at the same time have him not good enough to keep as a major leaguer.

I've got Alex Gordon on my roster too...him I would keep. Milledge? I just can't see it unless someone has some inside information about Milledge that the stats don't show.

I like the idea of pull a trade off involving LM. Yes he is good, yes he will be good, but how long will be be till he puts up great numbers? I dont think he will do it this year or next year. And with only 6 keepers I would package him together with one of your better players and try and get a stud. But thats me, i think ppl think "prospects" are bigger fantasy players than they actually are.
