I've been ignoring DeRosa all season, but after just checking today's (in progress) box score for the Rangers, he is 3-4 with 2 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, and 1 BB against the A's. That makes 3 HR and 8 RBI in the past two days.

Season Stats (342 AB): .325 BA, 58 R, 11 HR, 54 RBI, 3 SB

Does DeRosa warrant a roster spot in all mixed leagues? For some reason, I just can't bring myself to view him as a legitimate contributor...

DeRosa has always been a threat and that's why I picked him up. His numbers show it and he is showing it this week. He is pretty consistent with production. Yeah, he has his days where he goes hitless just like any other player in the league. I believe he can be a force to be reckoned with for Texas.

In addition to his stat lines, you've got to love his 2B, 3B, SS, OF eligibility too. ;-D

I grabbed him when Weeks went down and he's been solid.

I grabbed him, never started him, and then dropped him - but because of how flexible he is, I will grab him again once I can decide who to cut - I have given up on some players way too quickly and DeRosa looks like he is one of them.

I wouldn't want him as a starter, but if you have a bench spot he's great. Eligible everywhere and on any given day can certainly contribute.

I'm sold on him. The multiple-position eligibility sells me on him, as well as the high average. I'm thinking of him like the AL version of Freddy Sanchez, but with a little bit more power.

If you have a droppable player on your roster, take a flyer. Can't hurt.

Exactly! That's why I decided to start him this week and it is paying off so far! ;-D

There's only 1 person who came out of nowhere this year to have enough ABs to be eligible and to succeed in contending for the AL batting title. It's Mark. You can't argue with that. He has been hitting all year long. This isn't some Nick Punto streak-- and, as was said, DeRosa has XBH power (a ton of 2Bs and a handful of homers). Every hitter in the upper rankings for the batting title should be owned. That's practically a law of fantasy baseball.

I dumped Cantu for him on Sunday. So far that's been looking like a good call. ;-D
