One minor disagreement. This is not the right time to be selling BJ Upton. He has had a good start, but his value can go up.

I understand you were doing buy low/sell high from a position-by-position standpoint, but I don't know if I'd classify Roberts as a buy low. If it's anything, he's been a downer in BA, but the run of SB's and the fact that he still floats ahead the rest of the 2B pack at the end of the day, doesn't really make Roberts a huge buy low in my opinion.

I'd be interested in how the situation in Philly puts Myers' value as far as the rest of the season goes, as it seems to be in flux. Most rational managers wouldn't have placed Myers in the pen to begin with, but I reckon I would go only as high as Broxton in dealing for Myers. Odds are he could go for dirt cheap anyway. I just picked Myers off FA today in one of my leagues in fact.

He's currently outranked by 22 other 2B at Yahoo. That's why he qualifies. #221 overall while someone like Kinsler is #4 overall. If there's ever a time when those ranks and other people's performances will land you Roberts cheap, it's right now. ;-)

Exactly. These are all based off of Yahoo rankings.

Definitely don't sell low. Unless you're selling them to me.

Not sure how I feel about beating down Tim Hudson already...it's not like he lost all talent. The guy can pitch, and seems to have found himself again.

I don't know if I'd take Zimmerman for him right now...Hudson could win 16-18 with that bullpen and offense behind him. He's looking like a monster...we're comin', we're comin'...
