"Selling high" is trading a player when they are at peak value. Graves is currently at his peak value. He cannot be worth more than he's worth right now. He's healthy. He's got a job. He's getting saves. As closers come back from the DL, his value goes down. As committees shake themselves down, someone emerges from the group, and nails down the closer spot, his value goes down. If he continues to struggle, he could lose the job (not likely, but possible) and his value goes down.
Another way of looking at it........What would have to happen for Graves's value to go up? Realistically speaking. Not some far fetched scheme of 5 more closers biting the dust with injuries or anything.
Graves is worth as much right now as he will be all season. If someone wants to move him, now is the time to do it. That's what Thehat was trying to get accross. He's not saying you'll land some big stud or anything. He's just giving a heads up that Graves cannot possibly be worth more in the future than he's currently worth now, so now's a good time to move him if you want to.
Not sure why this caused such a debate. It's normal fantasy strategy. Like buying low. If you want Eric Chavez, now's the time. His value cannot possibly get any lower (provided he stays healthy) than it currently is. On the flipside, Graves's value cannot get any higher. Normal fantasy strategy.
