He is on pace for .254 BA, 31 HRs and 93 RBI. Which is well above his projections and 3 year average.


He's really overshadowed by the rest of that lineup, so I don't think he's getting credit for how well he's playing. I don't think you'll get a ton of value for him, so I'd probably just hold onto him and ride his production.

i agree that JZim is a sell high but mainly for roto purposes only... he's basically money in the bank in point/H2H leagues and has been for the past couple years now. I agree he's been unsustainable efficient wise thus far but i do believe he has more K per 9 potential in that arm yet too. so even if the efficiency falters some i gotta think his K's will pick up at least some... it actually has i think dating back 5 starts, tho i have to look that up.

Is anyone buying Billy Butler as a sell low? I sent Headley who is probably another buy low for Butler, just preferred the fat guy though so was curious what anyone else thinks of Billy.

I'm thinking of buyinh low/selling high. but I might be selling too much. Chris Davis and Mike Minor for Justin upton? I think Upton gets back at it again the 2nd half and I just dont think Davis can keep this pace up........or can he?

There's a ton of risk there in redraft. Atlanta has a very favorable schedule for their SP down the stretch, IIRC, and as long as Medlen isn't pushed to the bullpen, he could be a very valuable arm in August/September. Even if Davis slows his pace, aside from his hot April, when's the last time Upton looked really good??

That's a terrible terrible deal for you. I honestly would not trade Davis for Upton straight up at this point. As a Braves fan, I'm sure you can see Minor is slowing a bit, but he's still a solid pitcher and has some trade value. Don't do it.

I assume you are a Braves fan but if you do this trade you might as well throw in the towel and start planning for next years draft.
Chris Davis is just a better hitter then Upton at this point. Even if he regresses by like 20% thats still well above what Upton will do.
And then you want to give away Minor just because youre a nice guy?

Of course he's not going to keep up this pace. If he's does he is the MVP. Buying low on Upton is a good idea imo but not with Davis.

Exactly this. Even with a decently big regression, Davis is still an incredibly valuable player.
