You've given up on Fielder and Roberts? :-X

Alexei Ramirez and Jose Lopez are riding the pine currently for me. I haven't written Sizemore off yet. He is beginning to turn it around, so I'm hoping his late May/June can bring his numbers back up to par - it seems many have not lost faith in him yet, as he is the most actively traded OF currently. I dropped Stubbs this week mainly because I'm already speed heavy and his average is terrible, which is why he got moved out of the leadoff spot (looks as though it may actually improve his hitting, so I would hold on to him if you're low on speed).

It help determine the lucky factor when a ball is hit


A BABIP higher than 300 means the guy is being a bit lucky and chances are his BA will regress. You need to look at BABIP career. A guy like Ichiro who plays small ball have a carreer BABIP higher than 325 ...

Right now a guy playing over his head like Ethier is having a 380. BABIP ansd can expect his BABIP to drop to his career BABIP average of around 310. SO his BA should drop

On the other hand an unluky hitter right now like Mark Texeira is having a 208. BABIP right now and it hurts his BA. You can expect BABIP to climp up to around 300 for Tex so his BA will climp up.

Carlos QUentin his having a poor 188 BABIP. YOu can assume that he is being unlucky

When BABIP is high you can expect it to negress and

I'm teetering over the edge with Chris Coghlan. I'm still kicking myself for even picking that loser.

Delino Deshields, on OUR forum? Awesome, I grew up on him and Marquis. Coghlin and Blanks were my big bench gambles and they've both failed me miserably. Scherzer I had agreed to trade for Wagner or RSoriano before his big implosion, and now he's worthless......

Chone Figggins...Seems like he has some value on these boards with this trade discussions but he isnt worth a lick in my deep 12 team league.

Gordon Beckham. Dropped him on Sunday after another 0-fer performance. I think he'll be semi-useful later this season, but for now, I can't use him or carry him. So, yeah, gave up on him.
