10 2 13 .279 over the past month -- pretty poor. I'm surprised his BA is that high.

Face it, Pat "Ofer" Burrell is not going to be in the starting lineup of any champion #1 fantasy baseball squad.

I dumped from one team for Cameron and from another for Gonzalez.

Hmm. I'm in first and he's on my squad. Maybe I should give up now. :-o He is someone I watch closely with regards to matchups and he has done well for me in that regard.

I think it is probable that Burrell, Abreu, or Delluci is gone by next week. Which one goes is the question.

Yes, but would you be in first if you started him every day and didn't pay attention to his matchups? It would have to be a pretty loaded team to absorb his deficient BA and frequent slumping.

Burrell has annoyed me for years but if he works for you -- more power to ya! ;-D

well if the phils cant trade abreu or burrell delucci is DEFINITELY gone. the phils want to trade abreu or burrell first but they realize they are the guys that are harder to deal because of their salaries, but thats what is going to happen. count on it.
