who was the overhype, i know its early but there has to be little signs of those players your trying to sell in using their name to obtain some gaps on your team...

Klesko, Clemens (sell high), and Dave Roberts (he won't keep up the steals pace very long...he always seems to find a way to get injured)

i dunno about clemens. hes pitching pretty sick as of late. he wont maintain this level of dominance all year long, but hes still a nice bet to win around 17 with a mid 3 era and k's around 180

Richard Hildalgo, you could probably get B Giles for him at this point.

But if Hidalgo can have a 40,120 season what would be the pint ;-)

I doubt he will, he always starts out hot. Giles will probably hit 20 or so points higher (eventually). This is a sell high thread, so yes, I'm saying Hidalgo isn't going to keep this up all year and he's overvalued right now.l

Here's a basic list of guys that may fit that description. Im not sure about dropping them outright, but maybe try deal them outright or package them into a deal as sweetener:

Reggie Sanders
Rafael Furcal
Juan Pierre
Jay Payton
Jason Varitek
Bill Mueller
Placido Polanco (that is, if you still have him after all the warning that have been out there)
Shea Hillenbrand
Jimmy Rollins
Jamie Moyer
Russ Ortiz


oops. After rereading this thread I was under the impression I was looking for guys who are overhyped and starting to prove it - not guys that started hot and should be used as trade bait.
Heres a list of guys you should be looking to sell high:

Hidalgo
Grissom
Cameron
Dye
Lankford


sorry for any confusion

Would you add J.D. Drew to that list? i guess you could argue that he was never hyped that much, but he was on the buzz index big time after he had a killer spring.

The problem isnt with Polanco - its with where he is batting in the lineup. Unless he gets moved into the 2 hole, he has little or no value.
