Interesting. I hadn't thought of this. I just acquired him in my keeper for Pence and Beachy. But if he does move off 3B his value changes. Any idea of the possible timeline on this?

You sell Zim in a keeper because he's an injury prone player approaching his 30's and could move to 1B in the future. You buy if you are playing for the next couple of seasons and an owner is unloading him at a bargain price. I usually play with a 2-3 yr mindset in a keeper/dynasty.

LaRoche is signed through '14. I don't see Zim being moved to 1st until 2015.

Almost more like a buy low now. He has hit 2 home runs since the end of April and has seen his batting average drop 40 points in that span as well.


I just traded Shelby Miller and Aramas Ramirez for him in my H2H league. I already have some great starters (Peavy, Wacha, Harvey, Minor, Medlen, Lynn, Samarzdizjiasdfdsf, and Homer Bailey) and the league minimum is only 7iP a week...

Do you guys think Puig can be on the same level as Trout and Harper? Or in a dynasty should Puig owners be looking to get a trout or harper in return for him + another average player? Especially with Harper on the DL.

He could be, but it would foolish to give up Trout or Harper for him or anyone that has only played a couple games in the majors.

I picked up Aoki for my #1 waiver last night in a 14 teamer. Does this count as a buy low?

Well he's 10 for his last 53 and has only stole two bases since the end of April...I just dropped him in a 10 teamer. 14 team though he may still be worth a look.
