They just added the June 24/25 promotions last night.
Jun 27 Sergio Romo (SF - RP) W (Jun 30) Added
Jun 27 Dane Sardinha (Det - C) W (Jun 30) Added
Jun 26 Justin Christian (NYY - LF) W (Jun 29) Added
Jun 26 Brian Falkenborg (LAD - RP) W (Jun 29)


I can't explain why the June 24th contract purchases are on waivers til June 30, and the June 25th contract purchases are on waivers til June 29th though.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

FWIW, ESPN added him already.

I don't see how this effects vazquez at all really. he's playing 3b and when he needs time off duran plays third.
davis will be 1b and maybe some time at dh. the only player this really effects right now is catalanatto.

the real juggle will be when/IF hank comes back.

[quote"Rotoworld"]
Hank Blalock experienced pain in his surgically repaired wrist during batting practice Friday.
Team doctors have told Blalock to take a week off. He has been out since late April and continues to struggle with his rehab. It'd be a miracle if the guy returns before the end of July. Jun. 28 - 9:07 am et[/quote]

Looks like Davis might not be heading right back down

Yahoo, please add Chris Davis to the database. He hit a homerun yesterday which could have helped countless fantasy teams!

Davis now in Yahoo.

Also, according to ESPN.com, Blalock had pain in his wrist yesterday and is not allowed to swing again for a week.
Be excellent to each other.

Joey Matschulat, MVN.com wrote:Just over 72 hours ago, I found myself quite amenable to the idea of reinserting Hank Blalock at first base upon his healthy return to the active roster.

But Chris Davis has a funny way of making you regret the fact that you ever remotely entertained such a thought. Call it the Chris Davis Effect, if you will.

The 22-year-old Longview, Texas native is going to create an exceedingly difficult roster dilemma for the Texas Rangers’ already inundated brain trust in the weeks to come. And I absolutely love it.

...

Transecting all of that virtually flawless execution from an enticing collection of talent was a second-inning lightning bolt from the youngest Ranger present on the active roster, Chris Davis, who laced a 78 MPH “fastball” from the 45-year-old Jamie Moyer into the narrow cavity separating the teal-green center field wall at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington from Greene’s Hill: video

Truly special hitters can easily compensate for such a high leg kick and tremendously loaded power swing with ridiculous bat speed. You know, the kind of bat speed Davis has twice exhibited in his first two Major League starts. And watching those hips and hands move in perfect concert as he lets the pitch come to him, a mere instant before transferring the entirety of his explosive power from bat to ball, is really something to behold.

I can’t quite recall the last time I was so excited about a homegrown Rangers prospect, particularly one who has already graduated to the majors and is already making his thunderous presence felt.

And assuming that this organization doesn’t employ some asinine plan that ultimately stunts his development (such as allowing him to ride the Major League pine while playing only once or twice a week, thereby depriving him of much-needed regular at-bats), the Rangers appear to be well on their way to solving their little production dilemma at first base.

For a long, long time.

I think Joey Matschulat had a boner when he was writing that one up.



...and now I do too.
