The Coach’s Office-Twitter- How hard should I go after David Price in a trade? Facebook-Is Devin Mesoraco going to regress or is he a legit top 5 Catcher going forward? Facebook-If I’m in 13th place in a 14 team keeper league with 6 teams making the play offs should I start selling off now or wait until after the All Star break?
