wow , that is a very bad league. You made some sleeper picks like Tex and Penny. Although, they might've gone undrafted, after all how many rounds did Rolen ang Giles last

I disagree with your picks of Gagne and Foulke. Not so much on abilities, but you could've have selected each 1 if not 2 rounds later.

I would like to hear why you took Gagne #4 and Foulke in the second. If you get a chance i would like to hear your theory.

He was making a reference to how fickle you guys are being about Michael Young's streak :-?

my first 3 or 4 rounds were chosen by the autodraft because i didnt get onto the live draft early enough. id say i picked the rest of my team pretty well though. should have drafted beckett i waited a tad to long. i dropped tex for matt lawton because someone said he wanted lawton. as soon as i trade him away im picking up teixeira.

and micheal youngs "streak" hasnt been just 4-4...

Well just like with every player, you sell at their peak value. So if you can get top dollar for Young, go for it (not sure if that's been said, but I hate reading 5 pages about a player whose on a hot streak).

the question was i traded him for Jeter, and thought i did great. Lol, Jackal will probably think it was bad b/c erboes agreed with it.

Erboes likes Jeter. Not that there's anything wrong with that ;-7

But I guess in the long-run it could turn out to be a good deal. Jeter's lack of defensive ability is now known, but since it won't affect his playing time, it's irrelevent. He'll hit for a good BA (well, he should) and if/when he does come around with the bat, he'll score a lot of runs. I don't know about SB's though. 15 is my guess. He won't get many RBI or HR either.

If Young continues to bat around .300 from here on out and if he steals as often as Jeter, this trade might turn out to be a wash. But history suggests Jeter will finish better than Young in BA and R - HR, RBI, and SB's are another story though. The stats at the end of the season might and probably will show Young to have a better year overall, but the stats from here on out are what counts. A lot of Young's value is already accounted for.

Since Young qualifies as a 2B, I might even say their values are about the same from here on out.
