The Price Isn't Right

While a couple of Dodgers will be on the Price is Right on Wednesday, David Price is looking more and more likely to open the year back in Triple-A.

That means all those people drafting him in the 10-12th rounds are overpaying steeply for his services.

I just picked up Jeff Niemann in the AL-only Head-to-Head Analysts league on CBSSports.com. He is a decent young starter out of options and a solid sleeper now, since he figures to win Price's rotation spot.

"We want to see more command of his fastball," Rays manager Joe Maddon said of Price.

Ew... I guess we will have another Price Watch the first few months of the 2009 season, too.

Tigers closer of the future...

I no longer am on the Joel Zumaya bandwagon. He is a potential injury-risk sleeper as a middle reliever, but this spring has taught me Ryan Perry is the Tigers' closer of the future. You gotta love the next 100 mph arm. This one is more healthy right now. I like Perry so much, I am dumping FA flier Pedro Martinez in our very deeper AL-only Analysts league with a bid on Perry.

Again, I hope my leaguemates don't scoop me on this, but I was so excited by Perry's potential to close this season, I thought I would tell the world even before I officially get him in a claim myself.

As for my giving up on Martinez, it looks like he will sign with the Dodgers or Mets at this point. And all the teams rumored to be interested are from the NL. Pedro is a safe dump in AL-only formats right now.

Liriano getting the call

Francisco Liriano is on his way to the major leagues. Pick him up in all leagues immediately. He was pulled from his start in Triple-A on Friday night and should make a start over the weekend, pushing others in the Twins rotation back. Livan Hernandez will be traded, released or sent to the bullpen.

Now, the David Price clock is the one to be watching every day... Price makes a start in Double-A this weekend, but he could be called up to Triple-A Durham thereafter. He needs to be challenged.
