how many Of's do you have to start?
this guy could theoretically be stacked in the Of if you only start three.
Say he drafted manny, beltran or vlad in the first, crawford in the second, and has another quality Of like andruw jones, cory patterson, damon etc.
Sometimes you end up with more quality Of's than you need. they guy should be able to overpay if he feels it is necessary.
that said, it is still kind of a rip, but some people tend to undervalue hideki, so what are you going to do.
If no one else would give him a waulity closer, what is he suppossed to do?
say "oh well then, I'll keep hideki rather than helping my team, rather that then people feel I got ripped off"
I am currently in the inverse positon. I can't get the "real value" of lidge, as the people who need him and have the positions I need represent a drop off in value. I may trade him for delgado simply because I need a CI, and the people that both have one to spare, and need a closer are a select few, and delgado is the best hitter of those teams.
Not saying I will, only bringing it up, because sometimes, value is relative depending on needs. sometimes, its just not that easy to get a closer.
