Holliday and Sizemore would be an intimidating OF core.

Me Too. I am new to this and I'm surprised at the spending vs. risk going on.

Hamilton could either be gold or coal this season. I think he'll be above average, but not stud-like.
Chris Davis had a great second half last year and is a good deal if he's around $10. Other than that, I think he's overvalued and you are taking the risk of spending on another 'alex gordon'-type ride.

Just to name a few... :-?

With Davis, you know what he can do, but if he only gets 350 at bats, well..................... :-o

Davis is a gamble -- but he is 3B eligible so I actually like the risk.

Am I getting enough back for Crawford or should I ask him to include either Choo (4/1) or Luke Scott (5/2) His team is a contender and I'm a bottom feeder.


It's early. I bet you get a better offer -- I'd politely decline, and wait.


I think you're right.

I'd have to agree here, wait it out.

I agree. Not out of the question for him to hit 35 dingers this year. A bit risky of course, but that's where league's are won and lost.
