RotoAuthority League - Best Pickups Last Week

The RotoAuthority mixed league has no transaction limit, leading to tons of turnover at the back end of rosters.  Let's take a look at some of last week's best moves, in my opinion.

  • Ms. Behavin' picks up Joey Devine.  I don't place a ton of value on middle relievers, but I do appreciate this move.  Not only has Devine been ridiculous for Oakland thus far, but he could be in the mix for saves if Huston Street is traded or injured.
  • Greek God Of Walks picks up Jason Bergmann.  Bergmann has ugly ratios due to hits and HRs allowed, but he also sports a 21:4 K/BB ratio.  He dominated the Mets last time out and should be a nice source of Ks all year.
  • Los Genius picks up Edwin Jackson.  E-Jax has a subpar K/BB ratio, and it doesn't match his 3.29 ERA.  But he can get some Ks and that potential is shining through more and more.
  • Men With Wood picks up Jose Guillen.  Guillen tells us he started slow because he showed up to camp fat.  Nice.  No reason he can't hit at last year's pace from here on out, making him a useful 4th or 5th OF.
  • Ms. Behavin' picks up Jose Contreras.  He's not getting Ks, but he's quietly fifth in the AL in groundball rate.  He has a new cutter and some say the old forkball is back.
