Popular Adds

Let's take a look at the most popular additions in ESPN leagues.

  • Mike Lowell.  It wouldn't be the first time Lowell crushed expectations.  He's already racked up 22 ribbies.
  • Ryan Franklin.  Nine scoreless innings and the closer job in St. Louis.
  • Scott Downs.  A similarly excellent performance and a closer job for Downs.  Waiver wire diligence can pay off for saves.
  • Asdrubal Cabrera.  He's hitting .323 with three steals.  I'm not quite ready to raise expectations but I don't oppose the pickup.
  • Yadier Molina.  A decent-hitting catcher is so hard to find, especially with a lot of top guys struggling to start 2009.
  • Dexter Fowler.  Five swipes in a game will get you picked up, even if they were against Chris Young.  Fowler seems like a ROY candidate, and needs to be owned.
  • Jarrod Washburn.  Had his first rough start of the year last time out.  Chances are he's the same old Washburn.
  • Jason Kubel.  Off to a blazing 15 RBI start, no reason not to put him in your OF.  He did hit 20 HR last year.
  • Wandy Rodriguez.  I liked Wandy coming in, but I didn't expect a 1.69 ERA.  Zero HR won't last, but his 47.5% groundball rate is a career best.  The 5.91 hits per nine innings isn't close to sustainable.  Wandy is obviously worth owning but you might consider shopping him around just to see what's being offered.
  • Nyjer Morgan.  You have to love 16 runs and 6 steal with a .321 AVG.
