Nice one. I just grabbed him off waivers after looking at those same splits. The crazy owner in our league (you know the one...) dropped him for Carl Pavano. Candy from a baby... :-]


Oswalt on waivers?
There are no crazy owners in my leagues.

Now's a great time to be making a list like this.

Nick Markakis is the only other guy I can think of off the top of my head who hasn't been mentioned.

'Zackly. No doubt Markakis has not lived up to potential so far, and that’s putting it charitably. He does tend to perform better post-ASB.

Pre ASB 1160 AB 175 R 32 HR 162 RBI .285
Post ASB 796 AB 138 R 34 HR 139 RBI .317

AND –- Wieters is now on the big club. Wieters can supply batting tips and tutelage to a struggling Nick. Nick will benefit from careful observation of Wieters in action. Wieters alone will generate a 20-point improvement in Nick’s BA. ;-7

Also these guys might be getting ready to bust it:

if theres a player NOT to have for the 2nd half its Dan Haren. his 2nd half numbers have been way higher than 1st half numbers.
i recently say a website talking about how now might be the time to trade him while he is still elite before he starts to slide down so you can get elite return for him.
as a Haren owner ive been looking some into other pitchers, but im curious as to what pitchers to target that will be better in the 2nd half.
i know Sabathia is one, but playing in that stadium in NY and the AL East holds me back some on him.
Oswalt is another option, buts im not as confident in him.

Justin Morneau is another one. Around mid-July Morneau typically starts to tank.

Pre-All Star: 1564 AB, .302 BA, 93 HRs, 327 RBIs
Post-All Star: 1352 AB, .267 BA, 56 HRs, 250 RBIs

yes those two stand out, so if anyone drafted them its time to trade them while they are peaking.
and Im lasy to chech the numbers, but Verlander use to tank real bad in the second half. That was before he tanked for the whole season.
and Bonderman but he doesnt belong right now.
