Anyway, I may kick myself down the road, but I am going to put my #2 priority waiver claim in for Hawpe. Hope he can put up some great numbers at home...
Exact same feeling. Maybe it'll take a couple weeks for Wilkerson to get back on track, everyone forgets about him, and he's still floating peacefully on the WW.

What stroke? Wilkerson is a career .255 hitter who has only come near 30 homers once in his career. Have to love the huge minor league numbers and home park for Hawpe, but giving up a #2 waiver slot does seem a bit intense
Yeah, the #2 waiver is pretty intense, but there is no way I'll get him in this league otherwise, and I really have a hole at OF. Got to take the chance.
I think Wilkerson's shoulder has definitely been a factor. I wasn't expecting a good AVG, but I was banking on a nice combo of 25 HR and 12-15 SB. I know it's early, but that's not looking too likely now if he doesn't bat leadoff...
