Why (mock) wait til midseason for some speed? I just (mock) dumped Mike Lowell and (mock) raced to the (mock) waiver wire and (mock) grabbed Willie T.
Cause steals are one of the categories you can make up real fast. Say Bourn's having an awful 2009, just sitting on waivers in July/August. You really need steals, so you take a flier on him and he gets 15 steals in August/September. It's similar with saves. You can make ground in both categories very fast.
HR-wise, I was about to grab Reynolds when the clock ran out and I was 'awarded' Lowell. Jack C, not surprisingly, went undrafted (amazing the guys that do in a 12-team, 18-man roster draft). Should he even be drafted?
What's your take on him? Do his HRs represent great value (depending on your existing roster of course) or is he just an unsustainable drain on your AVE?
Reynolds might have been a bit more interesting of an upside pick. Cust is not worth the effort in any league. Cust is about to turn 30 and he's never hit above 33 HRs in the majors. Dunn's only worth it b/c he's younger and he hits 40 HRs every year. (Reynolds is young and has some upside, that makes him attractive.)
