Well, depends on your league. I've had him all year in my 15 team mixed league that uses OBA and I've been happy with the results. Had him last year in an AL Only and wasn't so happy with the results. I wouldn't expect much more than he's doing right now, but that's good enough for me to turn a handsome profit. When Grady is out he bats leadoff. So pretty much all year probably.

Well I opted to add him over Smoak A Doober, so that's how I feel about this stud muffin.

I've had him rostered all season and he's been great, probably my 2nd best outfielder next to Ichiro. I doubt he stays this hot, and I really doubt he hits more than 20 homers but he has good potential with his speed.

Don't have him as I'm not sure I buy in, despite my incredible bias drawing me to him (He's been one of my favorite players in OOTP 11, always made for an amazing lead-off guy with a great glove /offtopic)

He has been pretty much the gold standard of "Best FA offensive player available" in my league for most of the season. I've been very close to adding him a couple of times and have streamed him in Monday/Thursday dead spots roster permitting. 90/15/80/15 .270 seems like a fair projection. He has the upside to steal 25, but I seriously doubt he hits as many as 20 HRs. He should probably be rostered in 12 team or deeper mixed leagues (as should practically any 1-3 hitter league-wide), he's just not quite an upgrade over anyone currently on my roster. He's not elite in any one category, but is productive in all 5.

Another terrific game for Brantley today. Tempted to grab him, would have to drop Moreland or Dom Brown. We'll see.

I think his value has increased with Sizemore going on the DL. Hopefully hitting leadoff will allow him to run more. He really doesn't hit for power and I project him to stay around .280 for the season. He's been hot with the Indians lineup on fire but when they cool off, he won't be worth much without the steals imo.

I've been trying to sell both Brantley and Joyce, but can't seem to get anything reasonable for them. :-b
