Is he fully recovered from last years problems or is he an injury risk still?

He still saved 33 games for a team that won only 77 and by all acounts is over the hip injury that caused him concerns last season.

Expect him to get back to his 2001 / 2002 numbers and with a far better supporting cast 40 saves looks likely.

His whole hip dislocation deal kind of scared me away. Percival is turning 35 this season and he could fall to injury or be traded and become another Yankee closer to reliever convert.

If you draft Troy, make sure to get K-Rod too.

I'll take advice from those who give it for a living instead a guest who claims Percival is too old and too fat just because you live near him...

Thanks LBJackal.

I pretty much ignored his post assumeing he is one of the trolls spamming the forum today.

The actual deal is my Pettitte/Gavine Floyd for Percival/Austin Kearns. 4 hitters and 4 pitchers kept where RP carries a bit of a premium. I have a few hitters who will probably out perform Kearns as my 4th hitter to keep but they are old and on the decline of their career's. I'll gamble with youth and hope he stays healthy. He wouldnt keep Kearns over the hitters he has so it justifies him loseing Kearns. I've probably single handidly gauranteed that Floyd will be the 2nd comeing of Prior though.

Seems like a solid deal that helps both teams, and the cafe helped me put it together with player analysis in this forum and player comparison in the trade forum.

As always thanks cafe ;-D .

I saw him the other day cause he live him a neighboring town..... This is why you are an uninformed angel fan... go to your daddys office and talk to him before you bother us

oh and you are DEFINATELY not a knowledgable "halo fan" as you claim... if you were, you wouild know percival has ALWAYS been above weight... nice try waldo
