On the jukebox: Pink Floyd, "Sheep" (Doug Thorburn)He'd probably still get a ton. (pmitchell60 from NOLA)I'm so not a fantasy guy, but this one is interesting for a few reasons.
I don't know that he'd get 0 million, but he very well might. Generally speaking I think we over-rate young players.
This does bring up the point that player's are not have the same functionality every day, and that performing at something less than 100% is part of a ballplayer's reality. Generally speaking, is receiving a top flight SP enough in a straight up deal here or should I target elite positional players instead?
This is why I eschew the term, "True Talent," because a player's talent level is continuously dynamic due to health (both physical and mental), coaching/training/conditioning, and more. Remember, what a player gets is as much about how good he is as who is doing the bidding. Also, in such a league, how hesitant should I be to trade the younger prospects over the established guys?
Teams need pitching badly, and Verlander, though he hasn't Verlanded as much this season, was still widely seen as one of the best starters in baseball as recently as three months ago. There's so much volatility (a word I consistently misspell) that getting established stars (to the extent such a thing exists) has great value.

I covered Rodon above, and as much as I loved Hoffman I don't think he'll ever clean up the command enough to be a real Ace. (Matt Sussman)Hamilton will go stat-chasing in the final few games and take it. Once I had this idea for an article that was going to look at the most promising potential "events" of the year, like... Anyway, that's sort of how I feel about Hamilton this year.Rest assured that everything you find located on my dating archive above is of the up-most highest quality the dating industry has to offer.Cookies are important to the proper functioning of a website.articleid=23949 The off-season surgery could be negatively impacting his torque, and therefore velocity, but the velo concerns about Verlander have been largely overblown. (Matthew Kory)In an ESPN Standard 10-team 12 Keeper league, I have Springer and Taveras in a loaded outfield (B.He has lost about 0.5 mph per year over the past few years, so this year's 0.7 mph drop is not an anomaly so much as a continued trend. Hamilton, Trout, Braun, Puig, Ellsbury)...looking to move one or two of them.
