Have you taken a good look at your waiver wire lately? I scanned the wire today in my three Yahoo “fun” leagues and found Troy Tulowitzki on two and Victor Martinez on one. These are definite grabs to stash on your DL or bench.
Many owners grab the hot, young prospect and release the proven vet to get an open roster spot. If you can afford to wait for the proven vet to regain his top-notch form, put him on your bench and wait him out. These guys forged their reputations on their consistent records and should rebound.
Look for Tulowitzki, Martinez, Jason Isringhausen, Chone Figgins, and the likes. You’ll do best with guys on the DL, but maybe you’ll find a bargain on an underachieving star like Robinson Cano who should figure it out.
You never know who is out there, unless you look.
