I stashed Nick Johnson in some leagues and hes a free agent in the other ones. He could be huge in the second half if/when he comes off the DL.

Maybe Pedro Martinez as a free agent pitcher?

Even with Willits playing as well as he has?


Like I say, possible. Sure they can't just put Willits on the bench. I could see Rivera doing some time as DH, particularly to minimize stress on the leg. He is, or can be, a better player than Hillenbrand. Rivera helped me out big time last summer so I'm keeping an eye on him.

I think Johnson is back mid-July. He definitely has some potential to be a darkhorse.

What is up with Hughes anyway? I haven't heard squat about him since they said he tore his ankle up. Then, they said he might be out for the year. Anyone heard anything different that makes one want to pick him up and stash him on the DL? I think he might be more valuable than Giambi sitting on my DL.
