Corey Hart - Sell High Candidate?

Postby CdnSlugger » Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:45 am

Do you think I should sell high on Hart right now... and what do you think I should try to upgrade if I do... It is a keeper league but you only keep 4 players/year. 12 team H2H. Thanks!

In most of my leagues I think you still need to wait another week or two before sending out any sell high offer. Most guys just won't pay much more than pre-season value for players right now unless it's a closer that was a MRP earlier. If Hart and Pena keep the power and good hitting up I'd try to shop either/both of them. I'd also advise you to send out emails instead of trade offers for these types of deal. People send to react more cordially to the email asking if they are interested in guys than the trade offer, whether they are interested or not. You don't want to scare off future trade partners with too many early season sell-high offers.

Corey Hart - Sell High Candidate?

Absolutely not. He has been a surprisingly consistent performer in his career (when healthy).

He is a real nice lock for 25 hr with an .850 ops with a handful of steals to go with it.

I can't imagine you are going to get much more than that in return (mainly because is a chronically undervalued player)

i am not sure "sell high" is the right term. He is playing like the player he is. Too hard to say who to go after. Look around your league and see if someone needs an OF and then see if they have something you need/want and go from there.
