Waiver Wired......

By Fantasy Boyz Editor in Chief Corey Bugenhagen

As your season is firing on all cylinders we know there is always a spot in your lineup that certainly could use an upgrade.  Below are players we have deemed HOT pickups for this week.  As we always say you can't be content.  You must ALWAYS look to improve.

Casey Janssen - As closers are going down like Jenna Jameson, Janssen is the beneficiary of Sergio Santos's arm troubles.  He is a sure bet for saves for the next 2 to 3 weeks.

Soriano we need you....
Rafael Soriano - News out of the Bronx is that David Robertson is out for the next 3 weeks with a strained rib cage.  Soriano is a fantastic pickup in the short term and we would not be surprised if he takes the Closer job and runs with it for the season.

Placido Polanco - The old man can still hit.  He has 13 hits in his last 9 games and can still help a fantasy squad in the short term.  Don't expect any power at this point in his career but solid average is still there.

Yonder Alonso - The young Cuban has flown under most fantasy radars thus far but we are not sure for how much longer.  Alonzo is up to 300 with his average and will give you decent production going forward.  like Polanco you can't expect much power, especially hitting in spacious Petco park but he will get you average and a decent amount of RBI's.

Anthony Bass - Another Padre you probably have never heard of, but one we are really excited about.  Bass posted another stellar outing today with 8 strong and 7 Ks. 

Andy Dirks - Dirks has been on fire going on 2 weeks now.  He is batting .360 and still only owned in 56% of ESPN leagues.  If you need outfield help get this guy now!!!

Brett Lawrie Fallout.....

How many games do you think Lawrie will get for the tantrum he threw tonight in Toronto.  We get it the calls were absolute shit but you can't throw your helmet at the Umpire.  I am saying 20 games.  What do you say?
