- new Upton owner


I agree...playing in leagues that involves money, CBS Sportsline is the place to be involved with.

Once Lincecum moved up to the majors, I quickly jumped on Upton and stashed him on one of my 2 minor league roster spots. I'll see how Upton does the first few weeks of career before I think of moving him into my active roster though.

Yes, but if there is a possibility of getting a guy that will out produce all the free agents, wouldn't you drop a bench player, middle reliever, or mediocre starter to take that chance? Worst case, he spends a couple weeks on your bench and then you drop him for the guy you had dropped, or whoever is hot at the time. Best case, he pulls a Braun and you get great production for the cost of your waiver priority.
Braun, Pence, and Butler could've pulled a Gordon, but people ended up getting great production that cost them practically nothing. I'll take the chance.

I would be very interested to hear people's thoughts on who's the better pickup (assuming just one available spot): Jones or Upton.

I'm debating the same, and I'm gonna drop a pitcher before I drop Butler.

I agree I picked up Butler 3 days ago. Today I dropped Bonser for Upton. I'm keeping them both for now.

Have no fear Yahoo users... Eric Patterson is their database.

There is a guy on here who does work with yahoo and was adding some top prospects earlier....of course the two i want to pick up this season, Braun and Upton, I won't be able to grab because they have to go through waivers.

Why wouldn't you still keep Chris Young? It isn't like Upton is going to take his playing time. Anyone in ESPN leagues know if when they add Upton if he will be on waivers?
