Friday. Your mind drifts to drafts. Try to keep focused, at least for a little bit longer. There's still plenty of time to plan your weekend of fun. Now is the time for ya to focus, set your Friday lineup, and look back with fondness Saturday morning at all the success your squad had.

Darren Graham - I'm fine with doing that deal. His positional flexibility is greatly reduced in a 10 tm lg,but he still offers that, and at some point the Rays have to hit, don't they?

Darren Graham 

Hello Ray is Ben Zobrist a buy low candidate? I was thinking of offering Khris Davis for him. Its a 10 tm league. thanks

Ray Flowers 

Don - gotta make sure you check out the site daily. I wrote about Daniel Santana this week - . My rankings for SPs can be found here -


How do you rank Hughes, Ross and Roark?


What do you think of Danny Santana going forward?

Ray Flowers 

Christopher Backhaus - Well, you've got 15 yrs of data to go on with Hudson so it's fairly straightforward what to expect given that guys don't usually have their best season at 38 years of age. Add at least a run to the ERA and at least two tenths to the WHIP. Cain, Bailey, Shields... someone might think Hudson is an ace so I can't really answer your question.

Christopher Backhaus 

Hello Ray, I expect some regression with Tim Hudson, but trying to figure out how much? I have always liked him, steady/consistent, but do I look to trade him now that his value is higher than ever? I would like to trade SP for SP… who should be my target? Thanks for the comments.

michael mccunniff - I dont think starting either guy is ever a mistake. Wilson has had only one bad game in his last five. Rest of the time stable as usual. Bailey has bad history against MIL though he did look sharp back on May 1st. 4-straight quality starts for him. I'd start both.

michael mccunniff 

cj wilson/homer bailey a start? i'm thinking yes with the former, a maybe with the latter...

Ray Flowers 

Matthew Baumer - Moderate play. Lots of average of late.

Matthew Baumer 

So sit Quintana you say?
