Biggest sell high player...

[quote="Baseballer02"][quote="jsuga22"]Danny Graves... Micheal Young...

Barry Bonds haha I am selling him pretty high IMO I think Huff, Izzy, and Micheal Young... then I am going to deal young.[/quote]

How could you sell Huff high right now, unless you are indeed high? Definitely wouldn't get rid of Craig Wilson either, Mondesi is gone so he'll be an every day player now, and I'll most certainly take 25 HR and 90RBI from my catcher any day. My sell high picks would be Jermaine Dye and Steve Finley.[/quote]


I would be getting Huff, Izzy and Micheal young in the deal... Huff is a big time buy low guy.

You're right about no one believing in Steve Finley. In fact, I would go so far as to say that not only is Steve Finley NOT a good sell high, I would actually try to trade for him right now.

Finley has three 30+ homer seasons under his belt. Its not like this power came from nowhere. And he's still running too. Yeah, so he's 39. So is the best player in baseball. Many were avoiding Finley because they thought he might hit the wall, but clearly he has not yet.

Most people look at Finley and see an old guy having a fluky start. I see a solid player capable of .280-30-90-90-15. If his owners are going to dump him off for crap, I'd swoop in and grab him.

Clemens is a good choice. So was Dye a little while ago.

Adrian Beltre anyone?
This field, this game, it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh people will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

Michael Young

there is no way he keeps this up. He is playing way over his head. He may be improving, but you can get better guys that him that are off to slow starts (Jeter, Huff, Renteria).

I think Rondell White is another one to consider. He is on pace for 35 hr, 137 rbi, 127 runs, and 192 hits. Thats not going to happen.

Even if the above were true, which I doubt, Nomar plays SS. I'd still much rather have Nomar. And while Cabrera also has 3B eligibility, 3B is INSANELY deep this year, who would have thought?

(Edit): Oh, and I forgot to mention, as deep as 3B is right now, SS is even more remarkably shallow. I should know, I'm the one fighting for a spot in the wading pool (Everett, Cintron, Uribe, etc. etc. etc. :-t )
