I disagree. Let me explain why. By now, any silly moves have pretty much been made. Guys are settling in. So whoever is left on waivers in a league that has 12+ teams with 25+ players is pretty much either injured, lame, or lousy. Sure, you can get some marginal players in a pinch, but tough to get someone who can really make a change at this point unless they just happen to get hot. So that really just leaves callups.
I think if someone like Kemp (or milledge, etc.)comes up, and you are thinking of dumping someone, these are good pickups. Sure, they may bust, but the upside is so much better. Unlike the draft, I'd much rather take a chance on someone like Kemp, a rookie, than what is left on the wire, even if some of those guys have good experience and are more reliable in some ways.
If you are in shallow leagues, then you may be right, but even there, I would rather go for someone who has higher potential.
