Sold Travis Wood for Matt Barnes in a dynasty. He has decent value in a deep dynasty league but I was running out of MLB roster spots and top 25/50 prospects are the best trade bait.

Would you try to buy low on Pujols? He was pretty good after his awful start last year.

I probably would, but it depends how low you're buying. His foot is definitely an issue, not sure if it's affecting his swing or not but he can't run all that well.

No because his peripherals were still awful, the good finish seemed really flukey.

Is Jordan Zimmermann a sell high? Would you deal him for Sale? Gio Gonzalez? Cole Hamels? Matt Cain?

Is Hamels a sell high candidate anymore? I'm really disappointed in his performance thus far.

You'd be selling him low, and I doubt you'd get much for him right now. Watching him pitch yesterday was painful, and I don't even own him. He throws junk until the count is 3-2, which in turn leads to too many walks and bad outings like yesterday against a smart hitting team.

I think Zimm is for real, but I would still sell high if that's the kind of value you can get for him. Not sure I'd take Hamels for him, but the rest would be good value.

Zim has a 6 K/9 right now. I would be selling him fast for a top 10+ pitcher if I could land one.

Hamels struggles confuse me. i think he's fine and would be buying.
