Sean Casey Boston Red Sox
All-around bad player. $1, but be prepared for frustration and heartburn.

Good pop, too old, no place to play -- still worth a buck, maybe...

Craig Monroe Pittsburgh Pirates
Incredibly frustrating to watch, with that long, looping swing. Every now and then he gets lucky, but even Detroit's lineup couldn't stomach his BA.

I imagine that MikeG was never a police reporter on a big city daily.

The thing is, Clemens can be a dirty cheater and McNamee a lying weasel and they can BOTH be guilty. Crimes are solved when one of the low-life, lower echelon types finally turns canary and starts to sing, and rats out the big dogs above him.

Oldest story in the book. Woof!

Just lost in arbitration. What do the Yanks know that we don't?

Heath Bell Tampa Bay Rays
He is going to get bid up as one of the highest rated "closer in waitings". While his peripherals look good, I am worried about that workload...80+ games and nearly 95 innings is a lot for a guy that has been pitching 40 innings per year. He is a guy I know I won't get...and I am ok with that.

MikeG,

I am very thankful that you continue to stick by your guns and make the defense for Clemens. I look forward to coming home, after a long day's work and being able to read your insight into the situation. There is always at least 1 point that can put a smile on my face(at the very least), or make me burst out laughing as I keep rereading it to make sure I am seeing it correctly.

Tonight it took all of two sentences before the tension of work was gone in an instant. I am still trying to figure out how you can even fathom that "he's made Clemens look good by default." Was it McNamee who taped the conversation with Clemens? Was it McNamee that needed his lawyer's help to answer questions? Was it McNamee that called his former nanny, after 5-6 years of no contact, and invited her to his house to make sure she didn't remember seeing him at a party just days before she was to be interviewed by the committee? Was it McNamee's that could only explain his best friend's testimony (that was backed up by his wife), by saying that he must be "misremembering" and "misheard" the conversation? Was it McNamee's lawyers who said "what a desperate man this shows him to be" when McNamee said that he also injected Mrs. Clemens with HGH? Is it McNamee that is standing behind his wife and saying all the conversations about this stuff with friends was him talking about his wife's usage?

When the syringes come back positive for Steroids, HGH, and Clemens' DNA. I will be patiently waiting for you to write a comment so that I may get another knee-slapping good laugh.

P.S. Did I get Clemens for 2?

Surprised that he will be 32 this December.

I had Saito and Broxton last year for a combined $25 so they did some major damage for me.

So what is the bid value on guys like this? Closer in waiting of course, but a frontline guy in front of him. In the meantime, he does help you in 4x4 leagues just by giving you 75 high quality innings.

Austin Kearns Florida Marlins
You remember the inflation in the NL when you were still in the league...very difficult to set your bid limits. The big name guys go for crazy prices (Pujols $62 last year...) but that leaves for a lot of bargains in the end game.

Kearns is a guy that I can see falling into that bargain bin.

Funny, but Kearns went for $28 in that league last year...and I think I may have bid $26. Ugh.

MikeG,

I think you are wasting your time here. Maybe your time would be better spent on Florida golf courses helping OJ find the real killer(s).

Brandon Jones Milwaukee Brewers
The Braves OF is shaky with Kotsay in CF and Diaz in LF, so there is reason to believe he can make the club with a good spring. The Braves like his power potential.

Sickels has him as his #55 prospect..."not the huge upside of other younger players...but is ready to help now".

Worth a $1 bid if he makes the team.

Austin Kearns Florida Marlins
I have a question for you, Slyke.

I know your N.L. is a 12-team. Do you think that affects your prices? $10 for Kearns sounds like it would be too low to get him in a 13-team format.

I'm not doubting your expertise...I've seen you win leagues before. I'm just curious.

Brad Wilkerson Boston Red Sox
I agree - just look at his last 3 years earnings - and that batting average isn't getting any better and now he's hitting in Seattle - No way I go near $12 on Wilk. He's a train wreck and as you pointed out - Balentin is sitting there in the minors waiting for his opportunity.

Honestly, I would not have gone to $7 on Wilkerson. 116 K's in 320 AB's in 2006 followed by 107 K's in 338 AB's last year is enough to scare me away. Hit .195 away from Arlington last year which should also raise some red flags.

Balentin will be stealing AB's from Wilkerson before the end of May.

Brian Giles San Diego Padres
37 years old, coming off knee surgery and on a steady decline.

Scheduled to return to the lead-off spot, the RBI totals will be low again.

I just don't see him as more than a 4th or 5th OF right now..I think these bids can go down a few ticks.
