Anything better supposed to be coming from the AL? I think it may be time to use it. Pretty much an everyday 800 OPS player with some HR power who should be batting in the top half of the Cards' lineup.
I think I would use my #1 waiver wire on DeRosa. Something better might come along, but might not as well.
I'm trying to decide how much to bid for him in my league. We have two separate FAAB pools, one for regular free agents, one for guys traded in from the NL to the AL. FAAB ties are broken based on current standings, and if someone like holiday comes along, everyone playing for this year will spend all $100 on him. Since I'm in a tight race flip flopping between 1st and 2nd place, I know I won't get a real stud that is traded to the NL. But DeRosa? Not sure everyone below me will bid their entire FAAB budget. So, I'm trying to decide what to spend. There are salary cap issues too, so not sure I want to spend it all.
But since I have a shot at him, and probably won't for someone who is a stud, I'm going to bid aggressively.
