Wiggy has been a nice surprise from the waiver wire for me this year, and his position flexibility has been an added bonus for my lineup. However, I am wondering about his playing time for the rest of the year. I seem to remember some sentiments that his playing time would drop off significantly for some reason, but I can't remember what it was.

What do you guys think? Can I count on Wiggy getting normal playing time the rest of the year? Even if he does continue to play, do you expect his numbers to drop off?

For now I think Wiggs has established his role in that infield, probably at 1B. He's earned the spot with his play thus far, imo, though his average was hurting my team so I recently had to drop him from my roster.

I'd most likely be trying to trade him if I had him.

I've thought about it, but i'm not sure what I could really get back in return for him.

I've been tossing around ideas of packaging Wiggy and Morneau in a trade for a solid pitcher. Any ideas?

Yeah, I just couldn't take it anymore though. His average, for the time he was on my team, was .255. I picked up Youkilis after trying out Huff. Not the most sexy pick, but he will give me a boost in average, which I desperately need.

After his hot start, he slowed up a bit in early May, and everyone hopped off of the bandwagon, but the surprising thing is, he picked it up again and is still going strong!

He has always showed power potential, but that average will be low. ;-D

He was good for me for the time I had him, then I dropped him then like a day later he went 3-4 with a HR. Dammit. Oh well, I now have Kemp.
