7 R and 9 RBI over the past 7 games. Turns out even players on lousy teams earn counting stats if they're good enough. Buy-low window is closing.

Definitely. It was never open for the smart managers.

I have him on two teams and got a few offers, but nothing substantial. Never considered trading him. Have to admit, I was a bit scared when he sat for a week with a shoulder injury, but he seems to be over it.

Great player. Horrible situation he is in. Would have loved to own him, but, in all my leagues he went above his value since people valued him at a level that assumed there would be decent players around him like the year before.

3 HRs in the last 2 days. Guess who decided to show up at the dinner party.


He didn't hit his 1st 'till the 29th last year and his 3rd 'till the 2nd of May, I'd say he wasn't even fashionably late. ;-)

Never considered trading him, but did not get a single offer in my 12 team league. Had a big old grin on my face when I saw the highlight of the bomb over the scoreboard on MLB. :-D

That one shot is was a monster. I'm hoping the Marlins cave and he'll be wearing a Texas or NY jersey by Allstar break

Ditto. Sometimes I wonder if owners think I'm too smart or they're just too lazy to bother. (shrug) Glad to see a pulse from Stanton. Anyone think Stanton somehow gets traded this year for a mint so that his counting stats look even more impressive?
