Tried to get Matsui for month. During that time all my bait (Floyd, Patterson, Freel, ect) caught cold. No bites and now Matsui is hot.

Ive been trying to get matsui as well all year but the guy just wont budge off of Cordero(VERRRRRY cheeap) in a keeper league. I thought i was finally wearing him down a little on his demands but now hes hot im sure i may have missed out.

My buy low,,,,,and by that i mean really realllllly REALLLLLLY

Casey blake. He is NOT THIS bad. Anyone that took a chance on Aaron boone should be taking a chance on this guy as well. As i see it he is AT least that good and even significantly better. Its only a few days but he has been killing it for a few days. I would say he is on the WW in 90% of leagues out there, even very deeeeep leagues.

Juan Pierre

Will he turn it around?

He's been stealing alot this month, maybe he is finally completly healthy.

But his average is still terribale at around .260 and its been that low all month.

Lowell I have to say is a horrible buy low option. His 2nd half splits are far worse than his career first half splits. I see no reason to buy on him.

Oliver Perez is a decent option in my book. You wont get last years numbers but would probably do well to get him at 3rd or 4th tier fantasy SP price.

Juane Pierre. I wouldnt pay his pre season roto price, but as he gets healthier I could see him getting around 20 more steals this year.

Isnt Casey Blake going to start losing At-Bats? If he is assured regular full time at-bats I would grab him off waivers but wouldnt pay too much in a trade.

Schmidt has to top my list as the best buy low option. I would pay as much as 2nd tier SP price for him. I expect a 2nd half return to his cy - young form.

Helton and Huff as long as you pay less than their draft price isnt an absurd gamble.

Wilkerson is at the top of my buy low list now. Perhaps it means more to me being in a really deep NL only league.

Right now he is only on pace for a handful of dingers, but I know the dude's got power, and he's loading up on the doubles. I know he's been cool since the injury, but with the Nats looking to compete for a playoff spot for the remainder of the year, I'd bet he increases his homer production drastically.

The only thing that concerns me with Wilkerson is whether RFK Stadium is limiting his HR production. After all, though, he only plays half his games there, so I agree that the power has to go up at least a little.

I have to admit that this thread is a bit depressing for me, since I'm a proud owner of Helton, Huff, Schmidt, and Hudson. Huff's always been a good second-half player and I wouldn't be surprised to see him dealt to the Cubs, so I'd try to see what you can get him for. I'm not sure that Schmidt's turned it around yet, though last night's start definitely has given me some confidence that he's learning to pitch well even without his most dominant stuff.

I think Schmidt is definitely capable of putting up very good numbers from here on out - not Cy Young numbers though, since his velocity just isn't where it used to be. Still, if he can continue to keep hitters off balance, then he should be pretty effective.

Hudson could be a great buy-low candidate right now. I suspect that this injury may have been limiting his effectiveness, and it wouldn't surprise me to see him come back strong from his stint on the DL. On the other hand, it also wouldn't surprise me to see him continue to pitch poorly. But I think the Braves as a whole are due to heat up, and if you can get Hudson for a low price, it could be worth the gamble. (Note: Low price means low price...not anywhere close to his pre-season value.)
