What is this guys deal? Is now the time to buy low on this guy or is it time to cut bait with him? Any Pirate fans with some insight on the topic. I badly need his 30 HR production and now is the time to buy if it is going to happen. What is up with Adam LaRoche?

Well it's gunna be difficult for him to do worse than he did in April, but I still dont see 30 HR especially when PNC is home.

Unless you're in a shallow league, I think it would be a mistake to drop him, and even bigger mistake to deal him.

By seasons end, who do you think will have more value between LaRoche and Chris Duncan? I think they could have very similar numbers with LaRoche having greater RBI numbers hitting in a more RBI friendly spot in the lineup.

I would've never guessed at the start of the season that after I drafted Delgado and LaRoche that my starting 1B would be Chris Duncan :-°

wow didn't know that. Thats weird considering its only 320 down the line there, maybe b/c that wall is like 25 feet :-?


Actually, it's 21 feet... it's the Roberto Clemente Wall and 21 was his number.
