Is it just me, or are there more sub .200 hitters in mid-May than usual? Are you wondering what to do with B.J. Upton? Hoping Jason Heyward found himself while on the disabled list? Has Paul Konerko finally hit the wall? The resurgence of Adam LaRoche gives us hope that its a long season and the numbers usuallybalance out. Pitching is much more volatile with Kevin Slowey suddenly a disaster for your staff, while Jarrod Parker is finally delivering as many expected. Hang in there.... its a long way to October!
As standings in your league begin to take shape, remember it's a LONG way to October. Waiver wire advise is a tricky venture, as every league is different. Are you in a mixed league? 10 teams? 16 teams? Do you use FAAB to bid on players? Are you in a keeper league? There are so many factors to take into account. What we do each week is bring to your attention players that should be on your radar, then you can evaluate from there as it applies to your particular setup.
