I know what you mean. I've got Beltran, Thome, VMart, Huff, Berkman, Wilkerson, and Lowell, all of whom I expect to pick it up to some extent.

Berkman and M Giles

Berkman in a different league than Giles, Hafner, and Manny

I don't know about Ichiro for RBI's but he's definatley a good buy low guy right now. I have him also on my team and have held out on him all year, I don't think he'll hit .400 the rest of the way but he has to be better than what he's been so far this season.

Thome - He has been playing horrible and it's just a matter of time before he breaks out of his early season funk. I think he will hit 30 Hr's easily.

I don't know about Thome but he's a good option at buy low, he always starts slow and picks it up as the year goes along, its just taking a lot longer this time.

Beltre is probably the guy with the biggest price-to-upside ratio. You should be able to get him for next to nothing and he could break out huge in the second half. He did hit 48 HRs last year.
