Berroa's a free agent in my league too. What's so good about him? He's slugging .310 with FOUR RBIs.
Does your league need a quality, outside review of your league rulebook? Does your league not have a written rulebook? Contact me! I can help.

Slugging is a ratio, not a sum. I don't see how you've refuted my argument.

He has only played in a small amount of games, so ratios are irrelevant right now. Give him a week or two of games and the slugging will be back up. Plenty of players had low slugging percentages after a week or two, but are now just fine.

when you have migrane headaches and can't see straight (literally) it is very hard to hit the ball. He should end up hitting about 285 with slugging probably aroud 400-500 range. he is fast and will get you steals. also... ratios a VERY poor measure of performance when you look at small numbers of at bats. I hate it when rotoworld comes up with things like "player X is hitting .555 on the season and is much better than player Y who is only hitting ..333".... then you find out player X is 5/9 and has a career 200 average player Y is 15/45 and is hitting 320 lifetime...... .hmmmm....
Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.

exactly. ratios mean nothing until the player has played at least 25-30 games.
