I imagine Adam Lind would have to be considered sell high.
current line - 340/.406/.555/.961/ 9 HR/ 28 RBI.
that's better than his breakout season in 2009. (.305/.370/.562/.932/ 32 HR/ 114 RBI)
I have to think the AVG is not for real, but is the power for real again?

He's really not doing anything other than his career averages, except with a better BABIP. FB% is the same, HR/FB is the same, K% is the same, BB% is the same. The only difference is a .381 BABIP. He's a .270 hitter that is on pace for 25 HR and has absolutely no speed. I also don't think he'll be any good against lefties despite his high BABIP in a small sample size this year. He only has one HR against them and his career indicates that he's a .250 hitter with very little power against LHP. It won't be long before DeRosa/Bonifacio are platooning with Lind once Lawrie and Reyes return. So yeah, the power is for real, but it's really nothing special. If somebody wants to buy high thinking they're getting a .300 hitter with 35 HR power then I would recommend to sell him ASAP.

Thoughts on selling high on Carlos Beltran? He's been great all year... But then I remember the fast start last year/weak 2nd half and his injury history... What would you guys been looking to get in return for him?

Matt Moore has been pretty bad lately. Is he a good buy low?

With Moreland coming off the DL, I will have to drop someone. I'm trying to do a 2 for 1 if possible. Thinking of offering Rutledge and Cingrani (who both can be kept, Moore can't).

i get the high babip contributing to the high average, but if you watch his hits they're all line drives over the IF or hitting it hard to the OF. not your typical squeakers just through the IF, these are clean hits. I hated on lind as much as anyone else for the past 3 seasons but he's clearly shown up and has found his swing this year.

Franklin,but if you type in all caps you won't get much help,because it's irritating and makes you look foolish.No slight meant,just advice.

Needed strikeouts and stolen bases. So I was able to move Domonic Brown and Hanley Ramirez for Cliff Lee and Jose Reyes. Maybe I'll get hosed, but I'm washing my hands of Hanley. I'm done with that chump. :-P
