Underperformers/ who can be gotten cheap right now?

Postby mikemcj55 » Wed May 19, 2004 6:22 pm

Hey guys
I'm just writing because its one quarter through the season, and I am looking to improve my team. Are there any guys out there so far that come to mind, who you think have been underpeforming to date that are going to turn it around (or have the potential to do so). I am trying to find some cheap buys.

Thanks in advance

I like this question...how about Vernon Wells and Carlos Delgado? The other day, I could not believe this, but the Twins walked the bases loaded to GET to Delgado! 8-o Also Edgar REnteria is not hitting like he should...get him while you can...

You can get him relatively cheap now, Pujols.

I thought of trying that, but with the 1 still next to Pujols' ranking, I don't think his value has gotten hurt much at all.

I might trade Mussina to a Yankee fan if I owned him. He hasn't impressed me all this year, and he can probably command solid value still from a Yank fan that thinks he'll get it together.

1, you mean like the yahoo rankings? If your league members use this, i think it is time to graduate to a more competitive league. (Also if so, there are tons of ways to exploit this, ie players who slumped last year or were injured) ;-D
