I picked him up when the A's finally put Duchs on the DL since we can't access FAAB 'til June 1. I'm in desperate need of an ace, and as much as I would have liked to add Brett Cecil or another useful starter, I'm going to try to package Starlin and sell high on him pretty quickly. I hope he has another good night tonight to add fuel to the fire. I've read stuff like Hanley Lite about this kid, which I'll probably quote in my trade propaganda. But I don't need him really in MI, don't think he'll outperform anyone I currently have in any of those spots (not this year, anyway). Would have been more attractive keeper-bait at $5 or so, but hopefully someone will bite. If not, hopefully his hot streak will continue for at least a little while since Brandon Wood has only had 2 or so good days in the last 14.

Oops, maybe not. Halfway through the game he's 0 for 2 as the Cubs are trying to revive Aaron Harang's season.

some of you guys must not play Yahoo fantasy baseball. Wallace, Stanton, Alverez are all already in the game...won't need to use any waiver money to get them.
