Way easier to organize all of these types of discussions into one thread.

I believe this thread exists in DTKW. Not that it wouldn't be nice to have one here, though I'm sure by Page 3 we'll be in a pissing contest over the definition of the word, but just that such a thread already exists.

It was created over a month ago and has 12 responses....it's safe to say it's not being used.

I don't agree on Asdrubal Cabrera unless you can get something really good for him.
Many expected his breakout last year before the injury, and so I could definitely see him having a pretty big year and moving into the top 7 or so SS.

One guy I'd try to sell high on (as discussed in the other thread) is Ogando.
Most likely he'll end up back in the pen in order to cap his innings a little (only 18 IP in 2009, 73 IP in 2010).

Buy: Edinson Volquez

An owner might be frustrated right now with his ERA sitting above 5.00, but really the damage has only come in the first inning of all 3 games. Something must be wrong with his pre-game workouts... I think once he figures it out, he could be vintage 2008 Volquez.

Buy: Shin Soo-Choo

His horrible start has to be making some of his owners feel nauseated. See if you can trade an OF on a torrid start, like Bobby Abreu, straight-up.

Sell: Howie Kendrick

Has never hit more than 10 home runs, but already has 4 on the season. I'm not buying the power increase. SELL him to a team desperate at 2B, and pimp him like he's an elite option, cause he's not.

Sell: Ben Francisco

Hype up the fact that he's got everyday playing time and could make a big splash this year... while forgetting to mention that Dominic Brown is going to be called up sometime later this year.
