Guys, this is bush league.... Pujols will get hot. Do not worry. It's pujols. He's starting to hit the ball harder, and the power will come when it heats up in the STL. Nelly is in.

Seriously, though...all of the Cards are great buy lows right now, save Edmonds. Ummm...pretty much just Rolen and Pujols....maybe Ankiel!

Naw, prob. not

No one will be selling Sizemore low after a 4-5, HR, 2r's and rbi's game.

I agree with figgins to a degree, but I hate having players that bat in the 9 hole. Kind of a pet peeve... :-°

And too late to buy low on Furcal. He's hitting .412 in May after his normal slow start and stint on the DL. 12 hits in his last 15 AB's 8-o


I think it's safe to assume anyone looking at this thread knows Dye won't put up the same numbers as he did in 2006. You can still buy low considering it's highly improbable he hits .200 the whole season though.

Yeah, but you could say that about any solid player batting near the mendoza line. I think the point is that Dye will go back to being a decent player near waiver wire level. Not much point in giving value for him.

What about Tejada? 50/155 for a .323 BA but a OPS of .78 and after that 20 R, 2 HR, 18 RBIs are very low numbers.

Worth a lowball offer?

I'm not as much worried about Pujols getting hot as I am the rest of the team. Why even pitch to him if there is no threat around him?

He's currently on pace to replicate his career average HR totals and he's a lttle down on RBIs'. Sure his BA will improve but not so much to make him a great buy low candidate. If Thome was healthy for the rest of the year his value improves but that's a big if.
