There was never any proof that his bad start was because of the valley fever scare, people just assumed that. Big K sluggers tend to struggle early a lot, would expect him to turn it around.

What are we thinking about Medlan? Buy low, or sell high while his perceived value is still pretty high? I am torn.

What are the thoughts on Coco Crisp? Second highest rated player in ESPN rankings, but he's 33 and pacing by far his best season of all time.

You can try to sell high, but everybody knows he's injury prone and that the power isn't for real. By all means, if you can get a big return for him then trade him. I drafted him on most of my teams and I plan on just riding it out all year with him.

From what I've heard when people talk about Crisp I would buy low on him. People don't realize that if he ever stayed healthy he actually does have 10-15 HR power and should steal 40. While this power obviously isn't sustainable he isn't a 2 HR guy like people seem to think he is for some reason.

I've got both Clay Bucholz and Chris Davis in one league together. I want to sell both of them high, but I know they're a major reason why I am currently in 1st place early on.

The guy with Gallardo isn't willing to budge yet. Same with the owner who has Mike Stanton. I need closers desperately but everyone in my league over values them, which I guess in my case makes them even more valuable since I'm sitting on the outside looking in regarding closers.

Any other targets you guys have been getting for Bucholz or Davis?
