He's who I'm waiting for, with (I guess) Beckham 2nd... maybe Bumgarner? or Jason Heyward once the Braves realize how worthless Garret Anderson is?
You do realize who this guys agent is don't you - Scott Boras, if you think he plays this yr you're crazy.
Anyone team who drafts him also knows what they are getting into and is likely prepared to pay. A couple months of mlb service time is a nice carrot to dangle to get the deal done much faster than Boras usually does.
As far as waivers go there is no right or wrong strategy. Like many have said it differs based on the league. I would say generally the most common error is not using it enough as opposed to too much. If a player is useful for your team they are worth aquiring unless something obviously better is more or less guaranteed shortly.
