Are you missing out on the hot, young prospects? It’s OK and you can still benefit.
Usually one owner in each league loves to grab the young studs and see how they do. Most owners are wary of the youngsters, knowing they usually are too unpredictable and will go with the proven vets. Here’s your chance to take advantage of the risk-taking owner and help your cause.
If he just grabbed Jay Bruce, he most likely has an extra outfielder to trade. If he plucked Clayton Kershaw from the waiver wire, he probably has a starter to sell. Make him an offer for these extras as he would likely be happy to take fifty cents on the dollar, knowing that he’s got a guy on his bench that is taking up space. “Help out” your fellow owners and help out yourself as well.
