2nd Half Superstars

Postby Flounder588 » Fri May 30, 2003 3:20 pm

I know some players realy heat up after the All-Star break after a rough 1st half. I point out Randy Wolf as one such player. Wolf has been a Top 10 NL pitcher after the break for a few seasons now. Who else is off or usually is off to slow start and should be considered a good pickup?

Toby Hall hit over .300 after the break last year, though one year isnt too much to go by

Tino Martinez has typically been a slow starter... I believe Jason Giambi has as well... Just gut feelings, though.

;-D Thome .. everybody from Cleveland know's that Thome is a key player to have in August and September.

And as for Wolf .. and his second half run's .. show "me" the money. I tried to explain in April .. 20 win's

Watch for Damon to heat up after the break as well.
