Get in on the ground floor. Chris Coghlan, the Marlins first-round pick in 2006, was called up this past week. The Marlins having been working on getting him at-bats, and the recent demotion of Camron Maybin should give him even more chances. Coghlan is an all-around fantasy hitter with some speed, power and a decent average. In his two starts, he has hit second in front of Hanley Ramirez, and that can only help his value. Coghlan will see time at second and third, and in the outfield, and will soon gain eligibility for those positions. He is going to be getting snapped up in leagues left and right, so you need to move fast.



Where have I seen nearly exactly that before?

That's it ;-D

And to allow the editors time to work on the article, I have to submit it at some point on Monday, so the %-owned numbers will never match up exactly with what they are on publication.

Jimenez has been a good pickup for me so far. He's a step above the Manny Parra and J. Sanchez in term of control and stuff. A real nice guy to have as the #5/6 SP for spot starts.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
