Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Well we all know that making the right free agent pickup or waiver wire claim tends to play a significant roll in whether our fantasy team sinks or swims each season. So with that in mind, here is my list of players to keep an eye on or add from your leagues waiver wire pool.
Waiver Wire Pickups
I will continue to update this list each week throughout the season, so feel free to follow along.

i personally am not a big fan of beckett. injury prone and declining ERA and WHIP numbers. his strikeouts are solid yet, and with the Red Sox likely scoring a ton of runs each game this season, Beckett could pile up some cheap wins. i would say yes he is a better investment than Lilly in head to head leagues, but in roto leagues i might go for lilly instead.
I am in a head to head league. I just put Kendrys Morales on the DL and I going to do the same for Jason Bay. Who do you think would be a better waiver wire pickup right now? Here are my choice: Luke Scott, Jason Kubel, James Loney. Also, some just drop Gordon Beckham and he will be available after April 1, do you think he is worth the ww pickup? I have WW 3. Thanks for your help.

first off, i do think beckham is worth your waiver spot if you dont have proven depth at 2b right now. as for your pickup, i dont really like the trio of scott, kubel or loney. maybe a higher upside guy if someone is available. but if you want one out of those three, i would say kubel as my top choice.
Can you please assist?
With Holliday out for an undetermined amount of time I will need to drop a player to add (10 tm h2h non keeper), Who should I drop.
Probably could spare to drop a SP, either R. Nolasco or J. Zimmerman or J. Chacin
Possibly 1 of my 3 closers, Gregg or Lyon and not Perez.
Batters: Belt (SF)
Who do I add: S. Smith, A. Torres, L. Morrison, Rayburn, Fowler, W. Venable, Maybin, Span, Beltran, Kubel, A. Jackson, D. Murphy, M. Morse, M. Brantley

hmm tough call. i say zimmerman is your least valuable pitcher right now, mostly because he will have a hard time getting a bunch of wins and his era will likely be the worst out of that group. dropping lyon or gregg is tempting as well. for your pickup, my options are:
#1 beltran (if he can play a few games in a row here to start the season, he could be great trade bait when holliday comes back)
#2 mike morse
#3 ryan raburn (if you need 2b depth at all as well)
10 team h2h
Hitting Cats R, HR, SB, AVG, XBH, RBIS
Pitching Cats W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP, QS
1b A Gon
SS Y. Escobar
OF Bautista, Cargo, Quentin
Util Aramis Ramirez
Bnch Uribe, Manny, Wigginton, Tabata. Pagan
SP Hanson, Haren, J. Sanchez, D. Hudson, Oswalt, Lilly, Nolasco
RP C. Perez, Feliz, Valverde
Thinking of dropping one of the bench players to add a SP. Hawk, thanks for taking my call. I will hang up and listen. Thanks again for the advice.
