I know the guy is sorta of considered an afterthought because of his consistently low AVG, but dang, he's been hitting 'em out pretty frequently lately. Two jacks yesterday, one today, seven in the past two weeks, along with double digit runs and rbi during that time. I've been loving having him in my CI spot.

I needed this guy. I kinda overpaid for him with pick 150, but i got some great steals in that draft too.
I ALWAYS look at players changing locations. Pena in Chi with that wind and those hot day games = MONEY!
The bad news, the cubs fan want to trade him for young players. He's only in a one year $10M contract!

I just want to trade him for a bucket of baseballs and not pay the remainder of his salary.

Even though he is producing for you guys? And is starting to heat up in Chicago so he should continue producing.

Cubs are going nowhere fast. Whats the point of paying a guy who won't be around in the future and can't hit over .230.

Good points. Well I just picked him up in my 12 team league so I sure hope he can hit atleast .240.

240?? lol. I love the guy, but 240 for him is like 350 for another player.
ill take what he did 2 years ago, 227 39 100
I play h2h, so i can care less about BA, its not like you go into a h2h draft and target AVG. My friend tried to do that, IT DON'T work!
I mean, in theory i guess you can draft high BA guys. But it wastes draft picks for better 4-5 tool players.
What i did, drafed pena, ortiz, offset their inability to steal bases by drafting davis and bourn. Granted davis sucks, but it was a good strategy in theory.
Take an avg of all 4 players, COOL BEANS. It's like have 4 20-20 guys.
