I would. You can probably get him for almost nothing. I got him for kelvin herrera after herrera had blown up and didn't look to be in the mix for saves and before anderson hurt his ankle. when he's healthy he should put up pretty good numbers.

I would as well, just depends on what you're selling. I wouldn't sell high on McClouth, for example, to buy low on Anderson. Anderson could get hurt again, and something is definitely off his game. Control is his bread and butter, and he cant find the plate. Trade a fellow underperformer, like Ichiro, for Anderson.

In a redraft league, sure. If it's H2H Redraft, I couldn't make that move fast enough.

I like the idea because Longoria isn't a 1st round guy even if he stays healthy. I think you have to shoot for the top and go after a Verlander though. Longo was drafted in the same area as Verlander/Kershaw and has played over his head so you have to shoot for the top.

The key things to look at is he has 0 SB so he is not going to be running anymore. He has a BABIP 70 pts higher than his career and his K% and BB% aren't better than before so while it looks like the .300+ AVG is back it is likely just a fluke. Longoria is a .280 hitting power hitter in a mediocre lineup, that isn't a 1st round guy unless he hits 40+. This version of Longoria is not worth a 1st round pick even without the injury risk involved, he just isnt' the same player he was when he came up.

I got Felix for him, so I'm happy. Tried for Verlander and Kershaw but had to "settle" for Felix. Hope this helps for anyone else wanting to move him.

Sell Travis Wood? Anybody think its "selling high" (roto calls him the "best pitcher in baseball" this week) and if so, need a closer. Personally, I don't see him as high so having a hard time thinking someone else will. 6 K's per game aint impressive despite 2.03 ERA and low whip.

Travis Wood is not a good pitcher. He does not play for a good team. He does not pitch in a good park for pitchers. I would sell him immediately, if not sooner, and would gladly take a closer for him, if that's what I needed. I would be happy getting any player I didn't think I'd cut between now and the end of the season, really. I reiterate, he is not a good pitcher.

Always sell high on Cub's pitchers in May. They play in a pitchers park in the spring and a hitters park in the summer.

Brett Anderson is not terribly valuable since his upside is like Kyle Lohse.

Sell high on Patrick Corbin? No way this guy keeps this up, right?

Travis wood is a solid middle of the road pitcher. 4ish ERA with a .500 record. If you can get anything decent for him then sell.

Harvey is a sell high but I would want a lot in return. Maybe someone in the top 3 rds. i will be honest though I will probably ride this season out with Harvey since I am in a dynasty where aces dominate.
