How about BJ Upton as a buy low. He seems like he's always been a streaky guy and could start getting a hot streak going soon. I avoided him in the draft, but wouldn't mind taking a shot at him now..just not sure what kind of value to offer.

54.1 LOB%, 16.2 HR/FB gotta think those are gonna regress and he'll be fine. The 4+ K/BB is great, his velocity is in and around the same, as is his GB% so there doesn't seem to be any concerning underlying issue.

Trying to sell high currently on Tony Cingrani. I love the guy but a lot of question marks going forward....what happens when Cueto comes back, Dusty's usage of him, and possibly innings limit.

I sent out feelers to acquire either Gio, Cain, and Sale this morning. I already heard back from the Sale owner and we may be approaching a straight up trade already ;-D

Wow Sale for Cingrani would make no sense. Good luck and if he pulls the trigger let him know the gun was aimed at his brainless head. :-D ;-D

Opportunity for me to buy low on Matt Cain. Couple different options though for me. I'll ask you guys for your opinion even though it should probably be in the Trade Forum.

Option 1: I give Chris Davis (sell high?) and get Matt Cain & Mike Minor/Tony Cingrani (my choice)

Option 2: I give Chris Davis & Shin Soo Choo and get Matt Cain & Billy Butler

Option 3: I go make my own thread in DTKW like a real man should

I am pretty solid on SP right now but this is a chance to get Cain pretty cheap IMO. Tough without rosters, I know, but just based on value what say you?

I like option 1. The other ones, not as much, but mostly because I think Choo might end the year better than Butler outright.

Cain and Minor for Davis is a ridiculous ripoff, please take this deal if someone offered it to you.

That's what I was thinking lol. He sent that to me via email so maybe he just mis typed or something :-?

Also straying to sell high on Cingrani in my dynasty. Do you think I could get Alex Gordon for him?
