I'll nominate Mark DeRosa. In fairly deep leagues with his position eligibility he has been very useful. ;-D

I'll also echo the Wainwright cheers except that I'm mad at him for giving up that GS to Jason Michaels last start

Yep. You'd have to send me a boatload for me to move him.

Luis Castillo. He's giving you similar value this year to Brian Roberts.

;-D Him and Brandon Lyon were my last two picks.

Yunel Escobar... covers ALL the infield trouble spots, and puts up solid numbers across the board (league counts 5x5 plus hits n ops) and hes also covered nicely for Furcal being out.

Y. Escobar, DeRosa, M. Bradley...these are guys I drafted and who have added much needed depth to my injury-ridden squad...D. Murphy and Hairston Jr. I picked up from FA and they've been extremely solid.

Right now they are admirably filling in for Shef, Holliday, and Tulo...keeping me right near the top...go team!

Most underappreciated would probably go to DeRosa or Murphy IMO...if I had Kinsler, I'd probably mention him.
