I don't think that Kipnis is hurt, though he probably wouldn't tell if he were. Hitting third did put pressure on him, but also the spotlight, and he's had to adjust. I've seen a lot of pitcher changes just as Kipnis comes to bat. My best guess is that if you can get Kipnis relatively cheap in a keeper league, do so. Otherwise, hope he plows his current path the rest of the year and grab him next spring when his price may be about the same as this year.

I think Kipnis was playing above his head early in the year. His SB were of opportunity, not blazing speed. I think 25 is his ceiling, but 15-18 is probably more likely. I also think 15-18 HR is a ceiling, but I do like his strikezone judgment so I think he should be able to hit .270+. He'd be a solid #2 hitter. They are really pushing him by putting him in the #3 spot. I think the pressure of batting there has gotten to him.

You did sell high, and it sounds like it worked for you, Eugene. But what is your opinion on Kipnis next year?

I dealt him $3 with Wei-Yin Chen $3, Kurt Suzuki, Jarrod Dyson, and Dallas Braden $2 for Pujols, Ackley, Fister, and Shoppach. Pujols has been Pujols since then, especially this week and Fister has almost matched Chen. With the 5th place team refusing to trade Trout, Kipnis was the highest valued player out there. I think I sold high.

Hitting .200 in 80 AB's since the All-Star Break with 0 homers and 1 SB.

Only 28 XBH's this year...any word out of Cleveland? Is he hurt?

No matter. Team that has him is too slow to deal. Instead took deal for Moore at 7 this year and next, and Myers at 10 in first year of contract..with our new (idiotic) ten player freeze list, I will have interesting choices. Wieters, Hosmer, Andrus, Moose, Trout, Myers, Reed, Sale, Moore, that list of dollar pitchers (Milone, Peacock, Duffy, Hultzen) and Cespedes, Cain, Lavarnway, d'Arnaud, Flowers, Chisenhall, Ross - 20, 10, 5, 5, 2, 5, 1),,

Really? Arod, Youk, EE, Trumbo, Edwin, Middlebrooks, Moustakas, and Seager are not good options in th AL?

Who are those guys, NL players? In the AL, where Kipnis and Lawrie play 3B is a lot weaker than 2B.

And then there's Miguel (who's been far more than adequate). Not to mention Albert in leagues that have no standards.
