Screw Small Samples

In unlimited transaction leagues, my mantra is, "Screw small samples."  If I like what I see over a small period of time, I'll pick the guy up.  Most rosters have a few filler spots, and you can drop the boring 36 year-old for the interesting 24 year-old.  Obviously you shouldn't be an idiot and drop C.C. Sabathia for Emilio Bonifacio.  But if you have a roster spot and you like Bonifacio, just pick him up and ask questions later.  The guys who had Cliff Lee and Carlos Quentin last year, and Hanley Ramirez in '06, are the ones who saw something they liked in a small sample and acted first.  Be patient with your stars, but pull the trigger on those breakout candidates.
