Millar's value...

Postby slayme31 » Sat May 03, 2003 4:06 am

Do u think he's worth keeping or trading?

And what do u think he's value is?
I tried trading him for Durazo

and packaging him with Kendall for Cruz Jr/T.Hall

even Millar/Randa/Lawrence for Shef/K.Brown...

but I think I'm overvaluing him...any ideas?

I think Millar's value is solid, but he's not the type of player you can't afford to trade. If you do see him as trade bait, it might be worth waiting until he gains 1b-eligibility in your league (if he hasn't already); once he does, his value goes up significantly, especially in deeper leagues.

I haven't had success in trying to trade him...I don't think people are sold on Millar just yet. He was red hot to begin the season, but hasn't been remarkable since. I don't think he has hit any homers since that early hitting streak. If he starts getting hot, I would try to trade him straight up, but for now, your best bet might be some sort of package deal, as above.

I think you are over-valuing him. I picked him up early, but have since dropped him for other prospects. He got picked up in all leagues I dropped him, however.

MIllar is a solid player. He is a .300 hitter with some power, but he doesn't really play everyday, so you fall off in games played. You have to manage Millar more than his worth dictates for me. I'd prefer him on my bench as a fill in for off starters with off days.

In my leagues I always have one of those managers with the "stop referring to past stats, it's what the player is doing NOW that matters" mentality, so I shipped Millar off a couple weeks ago Brian Giles.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
