I'm kinda serious about this as I'm "up to here" with Drew.

Do you watch the Yankees play?? Damon is O.K. at tracking the ball down but I have seen better arms on chairs. Melky has an excellent arm. Looks like Phelps will get more time at 1B now.

I've got Melky. I'll probably keep him until he gets sour.

I read very often last year that Melky looks lost in CF, is that still the case or is he at least getting better jumps?
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

I think you're just used to seeing Damon's arm out there. I'd look like a plus arm replacing him :-b


No.

Melky has a very good arm.

That was two years ago I believe.

Whenever it was, it was his first couple games in a brief stint in the majors. He was awful then, but has turned into a very good fielder.

I agree. He won't ever be confused with Torii Hunter but he is pretty good out there, much better than when he was thrown to the wolves. I would rather see him in a corner OF position but he will be fine out there.
