Sell High & Buy Low Players

Postby Phenomenon » Tue Jun 29, 2004 2:05 pm

Who should be sold high and bought low righ before the All-Star Break? Here are some guys that I think should. Feel free to list some players you think should.

Sell High:

1.L.Berkman-Over the past 3 seasons his HR's before the All-Star break are 71, after All-Star 30HR's.

2.M.Lowell-Over the past 3 seasons his HR's before the All-Star break are 53, after All-Star 21HR's.

Buy Low:

1.W.Miller-Over the past 3 seasons his W-L record after the All-Star break is 24-10.

I think sean casey might be a sell high candidate. He has been on a recent tear, in his career splits is average does dip slightly post all star, and the recent injury might linger and disrupt his pace.

Sell High on Pavano:

Here is something I have used in most of my leagues and it seems to pass.

Try Pavano for Milton/Greinke. Or a similar combo.

Milton will get as many wins as Pavano, and take a flyer on Greinke, despite a lack of run support he could put up good numbers for you.

Without a doubt, Pavano will fall off just like the Marlins' offense.

i have been contemplating dealing Lowell for a couple of weeks now. I could really use some help in the OF. Who is a good Buy low candidate at 3B right now. Somone i could possibly deal Lowell for and get an upgrade at OF as well.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I don't know about others' viewpoint, but I would categorize Huff as a "Buy Low" at 3B. He's been hitting a lot better lately. Some owners may not have noticed that yet... and he also qualifies in the OF!

I agree about Huff. I just trade for him in my H2H league.
