I dropped Davis for him today. He certainly has a history of good post-ASB numbers and he's been hitting fairly well recently. I'm hoping he does well. ;-D

I think he gets dealt along with Nady, so perhaps a big second half with another club.

I don't think he gets traded...who would really be able to justify that trade? I do like him to post average numbers from here on out. Much better than the .200 avg we got as owners in the first 2 months of the season. At least he's up to .236 or something like that.

im expecting laroche to start being very productive. in his career, he has a .760 ops pre ASB, .893 post, and usually starts raking in july. if you have space, pick him up and happily play him in a UTIL or CI (or 1B if youre weak there)

Yup.

I've done this with this guy every single year he has been in the bigs and he hasn't let me down. Actually it is his post July numbers that are great, not necessarily the All-Star break.

Already picked him up ;-) Historically, he hits 46 points higher after the ASB. he's been warming up these past few weeks. I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen this year.
