You can put a claim in for him in your NL-only league, but I wouldn't expect him to be there unless you're playing with a bunch of braindead retards or inactives that have priorities 1 & 2.

I havent seen a post on this yet, but another issue that arises. With Aubrey Huff out of the picture, a spot opens up in the RF, will Delmon FINALLY get his shot, even with the bat-throwing incident, he's the best prospect in the minors.

This sounds like good news as a Huff owner. He's in a better park and moving over to the NL. Question is, where will he be batting?

I wonder if he will play on Thursday? We might lose a game if he doesn't get to Houston right away, which in a week so short that could be a reason to bench him this week.

Zobrist is the real Greek God of Walks-- moreso than Youkilis (his OBP is 110 points higher than his average!). He hits plenty of doubles, but he doesn't have big pop.

Oh, and he was on the Texas League All Star Team for his Southern Division.

If the bat throwing incident had never occurred, Yes I think Delmon would be getting the call right now. But due to the bat throwing incident, I don't think we will see Delmon in Tampa til September.

I like the deal for the Astros. Huff is finally getting into his groove and hopefully he can show what he's really got in Houston. Oh yeah, he's gone from the AL East too. }:-)

I too am more interested on the effects this has on the Rays system, does Upton get called up now??

I can't find any info. on it but Upton is on the WW and I would love to have him IF I knew he was going to get the call

Anyone hear anything or have any opinions??

Probably Wigginton moving to 3B and Lee at 1B.
Lee has been asking for playing time so this makes everybody happy.
