As the calendar rolls into June, we have also reached the one-third mark of the season. Trends are meaningful and gaps are real in your fantasy standings. It seems we get an influx of prospects in bunches and this week was no exception. The All-Star ballots are out at major league ballparks across the land and also on the Internet. I like the "select team" option, allowing you to vote for all the players on your favorite team with one click. Also the home run derby voting is an interesting touch. On to the most important news each and every week, our top choices on the waiver wire and free agency.
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!
