I moved him straight up for starlin Castro in my lesser league.

I think he is a perfect sell high guy.

If you find someone pushing the panic button a little early on some big name guys it can work out well.

It would take a hefty price to sell a guy that will hit 40+.

Only 3 guys have hit 40+ in Seattle: Griffey, ARod, and Jay Buhner and Morse isn't likely to become one of them.

Personally, I think he's a sell high if you can get a better talent that someone is panicking on. That said, I don't think he's just a hot schmoetato whom you need to sell before the bottom falls out of his value. No harm in floating him out there to see what you can get but I think he will definitely give a good return on what most invested in him. Got him in the 16th in one league, a bit earlier in another where OF talent really disappeared and I needed another power bat at the position.

Can a fractured pinky really be only 3-7 days?

Even if it is, is this sort of injury something that could be similar to Justin Upton's thumb injury last year, where he's not right for a while?

A lot of guys don't even use their pinkey to grip the bat. Thumb is vital to grip and power. Still 40 hrs won't happen...
