Walking the Walk- Waiver Wire Wins

Posted: May 14, 2011 in Fantasy Baseball

Your season isn’t over with a bad draft. Your season isn’t over with a slew of injuries. Your season isn’t over with a guy like Francisco Liriano playing severely below expectations. Here are some guys on my 18-team keeper that I got off the waiver wire. If I can find them on waivers in an 18-team league, you can find them in your 10 or 12 team leagues.

Added Travis Hafner on March 31… He is now batting .340 with 5 HR, 16 RBI and 14 R

Added Justin Masterson on April 5… He is now 5-1, 2.73 ERA, 1.27 WHIP.

Added Sergio Santos on April 14… He is now 2-0 with 4 saves, 0.00 ERA and 0.83 WHIP.

Added Doug Fister on April 30… He is now carrying a 3.22 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.

Added Tyson Ross on May 1… As a starter, going into today he was 1-1 with a 2.28 ERA, 1.268 WHIP. He is currently through five shutout innings with six Ks and still in the game for Oakland.

And I’ll add that with the #403 and #412 overall picks in the last two rounds of the draft, I got Jordan Walden and Jed Lowrie.

The owner that does his research wins. There is value beyond the first round, and even beyond the last round of the draft.

  1. May I add a few more to the list?
    Lance Berkman (first week of season)
    Eric Hosmer (so far)
    Ben Zobrist
    Drew Storen
