He's looking good at the plate doing it too. He's getting good at bats and looks very comfortable. He hasn't even been streaky either. McGehee has gotten a hit in all but 6 games this season. Currently he's been the best offensive third baseman in the league. He might not stay quite that high, but he should be top 7 or so in MLB.

Is that really a good thing? Dishing out millions to a player who may or may not ever pan out to anything relevant? The MLB Draft is the biggest crapshoot of the major sports. By far.

That is true. I'm hearing that there are a lot of young arms on their way + Moustakas is finally starting to produce. Combine them with Billy Butler, and there is some reason for hope long term.

I like Billy Butler, but I think he's so ridiculously overrated by some people that it kind of puts me off him. He is absolutely not a franchise piece, he should be a solid secondary piece when Mous and so forth develop.

Butler would be a #5 hitter on a contender. He is a good hitter for average and power. Nothing wrong with the guy really. He isn't a centerpiece, but he's a good protector, and he produces with RISP. I'd be happy with him as my DH. Not ecstatic, but happy.

His ceiling(IMO) is probably .310/.380/.490 with 35ish homers. Not bad, but he's not going to be carrying any teams.

Billy Butler will break out in 2011 with 35+HR

at least I hoped, I loved Billy Butler as a prospect and a hitter

as for hitters coming around how about Andre Ethier

Yeah. 35 is probably the absolute ceiling, but I guess I'm a little bit more optimistic he'll take up juicing than you are.

So, I just had 2 trades proposed to me that I find really odd.

Background on my team: I'm middle of the road in all stats except tops in ERA, last in Ks. I have Votto at first, with Glaus backing him up. My starting OF is Soriano, Milledge, and Francoeur...yea. My starting pitching is Halladay...my 2nd best pitcher (Happ) is on the DL, so by default Jamie Moyer is 2nd. Also, it's an NL only keeper league and Holds is a stat.

So remembering all that, here's the 2 trades (from the same person):

I give: Roy Halladay, Alfonso Soriano
I get: Ryan Howard, Ryan Ludwick, Randy Wolfe, Carlos Silva
OR
I give: Roy Halladay, Hisanori Takahashi
I get: Ryan Howard, Randy Wolfe

Obviously he wants Halladay and is willing to give up Howard (he has Pujols and Ike Davis). I really want to unload Soriano while his stock is high. But why would I give up the only pitcher I have that gets Ws, Ks, and keeps my ERA low, while taking on a 3rd 1B, an OF no better than what I have, and crappy starters that will also drag my ERA up and not give me Ks.

Sorry it's long, and no one cares. But if anyone is bored like me and feels like sharing any insight...

Miguel Cabrera is having a monster season. He is scared of Brennan Boesch taking his spot in the line up.

So, I just had 2 trades proposed to me that I find really odd.

Background on my team: I'm middle of the road in all stats except tops in ERA, last in Ks. I have Votto at first, with Glaus backing him up. My starting OF is Soriano, Milledge, and Francoeur...yea. My starting pitching is Halladay...my 2nd best pitcher (Happ) is on the DL, so by default Jamie Moyer is 2nd. Also, it's an NL only keeper league and Holds is a stat.

So remembering all that, here's the 2 trades (from the same person):

I give: Roy Halladay, Alfonso Soriano
I get: Ryan Howard, Ryan Ludwick, Randy Wolfe, Carlos Silva
OR
I give: Roy Halladay, Hisanori Takahashi
I get: Ryan Howard, Randy Wolfe

Obviously he wants Halladay and is willing to give up Howard (he has Pujols and Ike Davis). I really want to unload Soriano while his stock is high. But why would I give up the only pitcher I have that gets Ws, Ks, and keeps my ERA low, while taking on a 3rd 1B, an OF no better than what I have, and crappy starters that will also drag my ERA up and not give me Ks.

Sorry it's long, and no one cares. But if anyone is bored like me and feels like sharing any insight...
Why in gods name would you give up Halladay for anything other than a Pujols ransom?

That's what I think. I don't wanna give up Halladay like at all, and especially not for crap. Plus, even though Howard is good, I have Votto, who is godly, and Glaus, who might be ok but can also play 3B for me. Why would I want another 1B?

I just wanted other opinions to see if I was missing something. I do, however, really want to try and trade him Soriano for Aramis Ramirez. That would be awesome.

Bud Norris is 0-4 this season with an ERA of 9.59 this season against the rest of the league........Against the Cardinals he's 2-0 with a 0.76 ERA.

Lets take that farther, in 4 career starts against the Cardinals, Bud freaking Norris is 4-0 26.0 IP, 1 ER, 25 Ks and a whopping ERA of 0.38, he freaking has 7 career wins and a 7.24 career ERA

The legend of Bud Norris continues.

Cardinals need to get their heads on straight. Each game its one guy hitting well the others sucking. Tired of a good day from molina, then holiday then apu

Man, I wished my team had great starting pitching and above average hitting. It's 6 weeks into the season. They'll be fine.
