Morgan Ensberg?

Might he be a good buy low?????

I am working on a deal that would bring me Crawford/Konerko/Ensberg for Sizemore/Helton/Capuano.

I know it's not this forum but I just need some opinions on whether Ensberg will come out of this funk.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

If your pitching can do without Capuano, I think I like that trade...Crawford/Konerko is a big upgrade from Sizemore/Helton.

I would definitely do that trade.....Crawford is arguably the best overall offensive fantasy player in the league...Power/Speed combo that is unmatched.

Keep in mind - I'm not biased in this - I don't have Crawford and Cappy is basically my best pitcher. Helton should heat up for the 2nd half though, and he has been last I checked but Konerko is...well....Konerko.

then tonight (SAT) he goes 0 for 5 with 3 strike outs!! :-P

Something is defintley wrong with him. I was at the game today, and everytime he went up to bat he had a different stance. He wasn't confident and didn't seem to fight the pitches. Like you actually feel sorry for the guy. He needs to get his head check!!

Personally I think he may have some nagging injury. He's been pretty horrible now for about six weeks. In fact I just dumped him the other day, and picked up Chipper who had been sitting on the wire for about three weeks and has been on fire of late. I didn't feel Ensberg had any sort of trade value; every other owner would be looking at him as a buy-low candidate and I need to get proper value for my fourth rounder. On the other hand, he's been killing me so I decided rather than wasting my time trying to barter a deal for something I really didn't want, I'd just dump him and pick up somebody decent........

I started him over Tex (v Santana)...who of course hit a 2 run jack, and I'm now losing by just 1 R and 1 RBI...and Ensberg is my only remaining player :~(

He got me a top prospect in my keeper league (Andy LaRoche).

He has a shoulder injury that kept him out of a few games a few weeks ago. His spot in the order fluctuated, he was given days off, etc. I think it could be a nagging injury that, if he doesn't get completely healthy (i.e. DL time), could affect him this entire season.

That absolutely kills....why I prefer points or roto to HtH...I lost by 1 R, 1 RBI, and get this...by .01 WHIP (on Saito's save)...and that was 30% of my entire week, just like that...
