A lot of the guys mentioned in this string are guys I would pick up any time of the year (except for Cory Lidle, maybe). So I'm surprised that guys like Magglio, Zito, etc. are opening people's eyes a whole lot.
The one I would single out, though, is Jim Thome since I think he's about ready to break out. I also think Pat Burrell and Miguel Tejada have to be good targets because they have nowhere to go but up...unfortunately, I've tried to acquire them, and their owners seem to feel the same way.
Forget about Pat Burrell. Take a look at his swing before you consider his past stats. the guy sux and it's not a slump. I'll give him a chance next year after an offseason of intense hitting coaching and practice
He's not a stud. But you could attain Ramon Ortiz for the middle of your rotation either on the WW, or for a box of cracker jacks through a trade. With the way he pitched in Seattle today, I think he'd be a nice 4th, 5th, or 6th guy in a mixed league. That doesn't make him great. But from here on out, I'll predict that he'll win 16 (8 wins now) and be solid down the stretch.
