Fantasy baseball owners are about a month into the season it is time to take a go look at our squads and see where we can make improvements…whether its a via trade or the wire by now the day to day maintenance of our fantasy baseball teams should seem routine. Check your waiver wire daily and send out trade offers because you never know how “crazy” people are until you open up trade conversations with respective partners. Now, let’s not get all Miami Marlins “Fire Sale” on your fantasy baseball team if you are in last place. There is still more than four months of action to improve your team. Please Don’t Panic. Let your competition get all nutty and sale off players like Allen Craig as if they become Gary Bussey. Relax, the fun has just begun as you assess your team let me provide some assistance as we comb through some findings in ESPN Standard leagues going into Monday’s games..
*Over the last 15 days Welington Castillo (.382 /.400/.500) and Jonathan Lucroy (.324/.390/.622) have become very attractive options at Catcher
until Matt Wieters ,Evan Gattis and Miguel Montero heat back up..
And no sure why about 25% of owners are dropping Salvador Perez because he has heated up of late..if he is out on your waiver wire grab him up….and Carlos Ruiz of the Philadelphia Phillies is to return Sunday or Monday ….
*If I am a Kendry Morales Owner I am going to the wire and copping Matt Adams (Although he was a late scratch prior to the game on Monday)… Adams may finally get to see a healthy share of at-bats (As I have mention him in last week’s “PTP”..)…. from the 5 spot in the lineup without Carlos Beltran in the lineup…we all know Beltran deals with his share of injuries year in and year out…so just a matter of time before he gets an extended look…at 11% owned this may be the last time you will be able to make a $0 FAAB Bid on him and have him awarded to your team.
*Mark Ellis could really help you Jason Kipnis owners who continue to own him and START him…during his terrible start and …Jedd Gyroko owners like myself…. Jot this down…Now, excuse me while I search the waiver wire for Ellis on my 20 plus fantasy baseball teams…
*Plays Final “Jeopardy” Music*
*Josh Donaldson of Oakland should be a nice pickup for the those hurting at CI in serch of average and power
*Nelson Cruz, Andre Either, Ben Revere, and Gerardo Parra owners ….could do a two week fill in of these guys off a wavier wire near you.
Lorezno Cain of the Kansas City Royals and
Travis Snider of the Pittsburgh Pirates….both guys are hitting the ball really well…maybe you can grab them off the wire and flip them to someone…
* Send out offers for Jay Bruce trying to Buy Low on him…he is known to hit home runs in bunches as one of the game’s more streakier players… hit his first yesterday…
