Classic Sell High/Buy Low? Leave one, definitely

Postby Bravos of Steel » Sat May 12, 2012 2:31 pm

I've been offered Ubaldo Jimemez for my Bryan LaHair. At first glance, it looks like a classic sell high, buy low deal. But will Ubaldo really ever be able to turn things around? And is LaHair legit? Leave your input, and I'll definitely leave mine on yours. Classic 12 team H2H yahoo league, standard scoring.

I would keep LaHair. He is legit in my opinion and I don't think Ubaldo will get any better. HOld tight.

please help

I'd also keep LaHair. He will drop down to earth somewhat, but Ubaldo's looking like WW fodder at the moment.

While I think Lahair will drop fairly considerably I think Ubaldo is toast. I'd much rather have Lahair.

I don't really know what to make of LaHair just yet, but I can definitely tell you I wouldn't want anything to do with Ubaldo. He's a trainwreck and I see no indication of a turnaround.

I'd keep Lehair in this one. I absolutely have zero faith in Ubaldo.

LaHair is better and will be more consistent than people think.

Ubaldo is worse and is done, which some people can't believe. He had one half of a season that was fantastic. Other than that he has been very pedestrian. Don't buy on that half of a season from 2 years ago.
