Pickup Party

Here are some position players who are available in at least one of my fantasy leagues.

  • C: Catcher is a barren wasteland in many leagues that require two. Florida's John Baker has been OK, and you could do worse than backups like Javier Valentin and Henry BlancoMike Napoli works if batting average isn't important to you.  But really, this is why you have to treat the position seriously during the draft.
  • 1B: Kevin Millar and Nomar Garciaparra have put up decent numbers lately.  Lyle Overbay may merit a look.  Millar could be traded, limiting his playing time.
  • 2B: Some good picks here: Freddy Sanchez, Geoff Blum, and Omar Infante
  • SS: Infante, Blum, and Nomar also qualify here.   Bobby Crosby can provide counting stats, while Cesar Izturis is stealing bags.
  • 3B: Many of the above-mentioned players qualify here.  Also take a look at Brian Buscher and Chase Headley.
  • OF: The resurgent Mark Kotsay is floating around in some leagues.  Shin-Soo Choo, Joe Mather, Brian Giles, Adam Lind, and Justin Christian also deserve a look depending on your needs.
