Thanks. I know how to sort in Yahoo. I can figure it out. I was hoping that you had a good matchup or matchups in the back of your mind.

I'll take it from here.


Dude.......I'm not saying that you don't know how to sort in Yahoo but I'm looking for some help from you so that we can help you. Just saying "Who should I pick up?" is a little vague. If you listed the top 20 or so available players, it would have helped us immensely. Help us help you is all we're saying.

It ain't personal. As you can see, there were a lot of players that were already taken because he didn't list the available guys. I know that it's getting down to crunch time but this is the time to relax, have a cold one, and watch your team bring you to victory.

I didn't jump on this guy. Just asked for an idea of who was availiable. If you notice on the thread that you provided, I only named David Ortiz and that he was probably gone. It doesn't accomplish much to list a bunch of people that probably are not availiable. It's easier if we at least have a couple of names. ;-)

Since no names were being given, I gave him the "type" of hitters to look for. What's wrong with that?

I credit you for listing a few players, but unfortunately for all we know, they are all taken, or there might be a better option out there for him. Looks like we will never know. :-/

Here are some of the guys available in my league. I would recommend Randa, Redman, or Biggio. Other than that, take your pick:

Randa, Joe (3B, DH-KC)
Redman, Tike (CF-Pit)
Johnson, Nick (1B, DH-NYY)
Lugo, Julio (SS-TB)
Biggio, Craig (2B, CF-Hou)
Wilkerson, Brad (CF, LF, 1B-Mon)
Durazo, Erubiel (1B, DH-Oak)
Baldelli, Rocco (CF-TB)
Burroughs, Sean (3B-SD)
Guiel, Aaron (RF-KC)
Bigbie, Larry (LF-Bal)
Ellis, Mark (2B-Oak)
Alomar, Roberto (2B-CWS)
Gerut, Jody (CF, RF, LF-Cle)
Mondesi, Raul (RF-Ari)
Guzman, Cristian (SS-Min)
Rivas, Luis (2B-Min)
Pierzynski, A.J. (C-Min)
Phelps, Josh (DH-Tor)
Crawford, Carl (LF-TB)
Ginter, Keith (3B, 2B-Mil)
Anderson, Marlon (2B-TB)
Alfonzo, Edgardo (3B-SF)
Stewart, Shannon (LF, DH-Min)
Stairs, Matt (RF, LF, 1B-Pit)

(Let's see if I can get this in while FBC is up:)

The six names I gave earlier - Byrd, Redman from PIT, Randa, Belliard, Nick Johnson and Reed Johnson - are all on "my" free agent list.

It would be of little use to give y'all a list of the "top 20 free agents." Many of those are either veterans or are on teams that have clinched a playoff spot, and they probably won't be playing full-time the rest of the season. As I mentioned in my initial post, I need counting stats.

I'm looking for the "young hungry guys" such as those in the above list, who might fill in place of Bonds and a slumping Carl Crawford on my team. I'm looking for those "under the radar", as it were.

I'm sorry for being grumpy. I'm just excited to be able to sniff 1st place again after being 9-10 points back as recently as last week. The beer can wait.

I would try Randa. He should get you some runs and also might get you some power numbers. Plus, they finish against the White Sox, who have packed it in ever since they pushed Buehrle back a day so that he wouldn't face the Yankees.

I'm thinking like you on Royals players vs. Sox, Lofunzo. Thanks. ;-D

I think that the Phillies will either be very good or very bad against the Braves, so I'm hedging on Byrd.
