Roto Rebel: Sell King Felix Now!

Yes now. Today. Sell, sell, sell! Even trade for Alex Rodriguez? Done. Straight up for Albert Pujols? Well, duh. Even exchange for Chris Carpenter? Uh, NO!

Honestly, will Felix Hernandez ever have more value on the trade market than he does TODAY?! Possible? Yes. Probable? Not highly. Start up the emails and phone calls to your fellow owners and see how high they're willing to go.

Now don't get me not unload King Felix for just any deal. What did you have him valued at going into your auction? $24? $27? Sure he may earn $30+ in value, but if you can get a more proven upper echelon player - do it. Today.


Love trading guys high, but if you drafted him .. hard to sell after just 2 starts.

Well I own probably more Felix shares than anyone in this community and I can assure you I am NOT getting Pujols or ARod dangled in return. Maybe other people are, dunno. I understand your theory, though. It comes down to this - there's a price for just about anyone, to and fro.

Someone offered me Jeremy Sowers for Hernandez. Actually, Hernandez was in his contract year on my team and I gave him just a one-year raise (making his salary $10 from $5). I could have given him a bigger jump but chose to err on the cautious side (to save auction dollars for spending elsewhere). I don't want to be caught holding the cards when his arms falls off. Hopefully that doesn't happen for a long, long time.

Yeah, that's the third-worst offer in the history of trade offers. All in this year.
