Selling High Part II

Postby Arlo » Thu May 13, 2004 1:16 pm

It's still early in the season, and there's plenty of time to cash in on hot starts. But some things have changed since our first list of sell high candidates. Patrick Martin keeps us up to date by looking at several players who may currently be overvalued. More great food for thought from the Mook! ;-D

And yes, Patrick is absolutely right: figuring out which players to trade while their value is sky-high is much, much more difficult - and nerve-racking - than buying low...

Have you been able to capitalize on any sell high trades this season? If so, let us know!

I agree with those sell high guys...Johnson is a must sell high guy. I live in Miami and have watched CJ swing and miss at curve balls since back with the Hurricanes. He is playing over his head...way over his head.
I have a couple sell high guys for you...Craig Wilson, Oliver Perez (after his game tonight at Coors, maybe he is for real), and Danny Bautista. I think that these guys are going to cool down soon, but would demand a decent player when on the trading block.
One player who I see many people think is a sell high guy is M. Cabrera. I would not trade this guy. He is dead serious...hitting his 27 RBI tonight. He plays like a natural, showing zero signs of stress or concern when at the plate. Not too many 20 year old rookies can hit a bomb off Clemens in the World Series.
