After watching Pods' average and OB% tumble all of last season, I don't think he was in a sophomore slump...I think his rookie season was his career year never to be touched again.

If you can trade his steals for a nice 3rd sacker, I'd say you are pretty well set (barring injury of course)


I was right though wasnt I?

When I said the Tigers would win 70 games a year ago I caught so much heat youd have thought I said the Pope was Chinese.

Well, I dont know exactly what cats you guys use in your 7x7, but I will tell you this: in standard 5x5 leagues Mora was a top 10 overall fantasy player last yr. He is simply an undervalued stud. Yes, I would jump at the chance to grab Mora for Pods.

I would normally say to trade Pods but he should be good for at least 50 SB this year. While I like CRawford a lot more, he could also fetch a lot more in a trade. I would shop Crawford around.

my pick is coming up in two...i've got the 11th spot in the draft, so i'll be drafting two players pretty much back to back...who would be two good players to look at?

Best available hitters:
Nevin
Finley
P.Wilson
V.Castilla
Koskie
J.Jones
R.Palemiro
Feliz
M.Sweeny
Hidalgo

RP:
Mesa
L.Hawkins
J.Julio
Urbina
Aquino
S.Torres
S.Sheilds
Donnally
Worrell

I was thinking of grabbing Nevin or Finley (still attempting to trade Pods) and then grabbing a RP? what does everyone think?

Nevin doesn't really fit a need but is probably the best pick out there. I still say to try and trade Crawford over Pods. You won't lose much (if anything) at SB but Crawford will fetch you much more. Look to get some pop and/or RP with him.

took Nevin with my 5th rounder (15th after keepers) and then added Steve Finley with my 6th round pick.

I realize this gives me 5 OF players and we only start 3, It's my hopes that I can trade either Nevin or one of my OF for some RP help?
