Let me know because I was just offered Haren and Glaus for Wright and I am about to reject but this might change things.


Yeah, another victim of Yahoo's bass-ackwards way of doing this. 1 in the started column means he has only 1 game left to start there in order to obtain SS eligibility. It's like a countdown: only 1 left.

They really just ought to put the # of games started at a position, it's too confusing this way.

Going into the season when I and others were ranking 3B, most people had Glaus pretty low...about 10th or so from what I remember. They ranked him low because of his injury risk.

Is he not considered a high risk player anymore or is everyone just over looking that b/c he can now be plugged in at SS?

was just wondering...

Troy Glaus is a full-time AL player. He can DH all next year if he gets achy and still be my starting SS.

Slight side topic...but SS is quite deep this year. In past years, you couldn't find 12 legitimate starters. This year, you definitely can:
Tejada
Young
Jeter
Reyes
Rollins
Furcal
Garciaparra
F. Lopez
J. Lugo
Renteria
B. Hall

And for the last spot, I guess you can figure out some sort of assortment out of Hanley Ramirez, Clint Barmes, Bobby Crosby, Jhonny Peralta, Orlando Cabrera...got some overachievers and underachievers here.

I mean, his value definitely goes up at SS, but note that SS is pretty good this year.

With Glaus being a SS, he's one of the power SS hitters, behind Tejada, Young, Jeter, and Garciaparra. That's a HUGE improvement in his value.

He became a shortstop in Yahoo Fantasy after today's game, I assume it will take them a couple of days to make him one.

Where does Glaus rank among the shortstops now?

I'd say third behind Reyes and Tejada, and just ahead of Jeter.

I agree. I can see either him or Jeter at 3 and 4.

I'd say 3. Tejada back at #1, Jeter #2, Glaus #3, Young #4.
