Any Tigers fans here? What is wrong with this guy? Is he done? I'm in a 12 team H2H league, and looking to maybe improve my SP, so what types of SP's are being traded for him straight up? I know his value has plummeted, but at this point, I am willing to trade him for a high risk, nice upside young player. Any ideas thanks and of course WHIR.
Interesting...I was just going to respond that its still early to be worried about a slumping player but NOT too early to worry if Mags has made a successful transition from steroids to HGH. If not he may actually play like a guy with diminishing skills.
Any updated thoughts on Maggs, now that another month has gone by? A month which, if anything, he got even more worthless. Yeah, the average is up a little. But no home runs since April, and pitiful run and rbi production. I like to consider myself a patient fbb manager. But at this point, I'm seriously considering pulling the plug on him. Outright drops in shallow leagues, or trading him away at a massive discount (at least going by draft-position value).
Isn't he old in baseball terms? Some players just hit a brick wall and decline rapidly instead of slowly fading away. Maybe he's just one of those that rapidly declines. I know I've read (well skimmed) a few articles that talked about Maggs, which seemed to imply they believe its a case of diminished skills.

In my 10 team league, I've spent the last week trying to move him (in package deals). No luck. Gavin Floyd is a FA in my league, so if he puts together one more QS today, I plan to drop Ordonez for him. Otherwise, Madson is a FA and I could use a few SVs, even if it's only temporary.
