Last Week Of Fantasy Baseball: Come Get These Players

Here we are approaching fantasy baseball’s final week of the regular season which starts on Monday. Therefore, and unfortunately, this will be the final week of waiver wire pickups. Hopefully most of you have made your way into the 2012 fantasy playoffs, which for many leagues, will begin on September 10th. Meantime here are this week’s pickups for you to consider. We hope the past 5 1/2 months of providing you with this feature has helped you & your team. Good luck in the Playoffs!!

Mitch Moreland-1B,OF-Rangers- This is a good news-bad news story for those in need of a player who really has over-achieved this season. The good news, and there’s plenty, is that over the past 2 weeks, Mooreland is the 36th ranked player in Yahoo! leagues. Look at these numbers he’s put up over this period: 3 home runs, 13 RBI, 7 runs scored and a hefty .341 BA. He has 15 HRs in just 250 ABs this season compared to 16 HRs in 464 ABs last year. He batted .259 last season and is currently at .292 this year. Now for the bad news…should you be tempted enough to picked him up keep in mind that he only hits against righties, therefore a certain amount of maintenance will be required. However we think it’s a small risk to pay for the rewards he brings. He’s only owned in 29% of leagues.
Carlos Gomez-OF-Brewers- We’re surprised Gomez is still available in so many leagues at this point in the season, as he provides his owners with both power as well as speed. When the season began he platooned with another speedster Nyjer Morgan but has since been given the starting job against righties as well as lefties. For the season he has stolen 28 bases while hitting 14 home runs. How many players on your team have done something like that? Even though he is batting .320 over his last seven games (1 as a pinch hitter), his batting average, currently at .256, is his only real downfall which shows you that you can’t have everything. Gomez is available in 60% of leagues, so when you’re done reading this go take a look and see if he’s available in your league-just in time for the playoffs.
Eric Stults-SP,RP-Padres-  After being in the majors almost seven years, this SP,RP has finally been given the chance to show what he’s got as a full-time starter and it has been worth the wait! Since getting into the Pods rotation the 1st week of August, Stults has started five games and won...
