Default Buy or Sell?

1) The biggest moved in the off season was, of coarse, The Unit's move from the Desert to the Apple which sparked talk of World Series rings and a Cy Young award as almost a sure lock. Now w/ an ERA right below 4.00, lagging 30+ K's behind Johan Santana, and a shaky 5-3 record The Unit's first year in the pinstripes is looking much like A-Rods- a bit green. Buy or Sell Randy Johnson winning this year's AL Cy Young

2) Frank Thomas returned to the White Sox lineup on Memorial Day to a nice standing O at US Cell. Although he went 0-2, a walk, and a run scored he looks good around on bases on his repaired wheel. He would leave the game early sighting "a little twinge in the hip flexor" Thomas is a lifetime .308 power hitter, about a dozen short of 450 homeruns, almost 1500 walks, .429 OBP. Baseball-reference.com's mathematical hall of fame tracker says the lifetime White Sox slugger should be in... but do you Buy or Sell The Hurt in the Hall?

3) Lets talk NL now... currently tied up w/ Marlins for head of the wide open NL East the Atlanta Braves are battling injury and payroll cuts trying to extend their consecutive division title record to 14. A lot of critics though last year was finally the year it would come to an end, but manager Bobby Cox stretched the most out of his roster and a suprisingly effective pitching staff to stay a top of the East yet again. This year, however, has been different w/ bullpen issues and lack of a clean up hitter the Braves have been up and down this season... Buy or Sell the end of the Braves division title streak?
