How about that Placido Polanco?!?!?
The Phils brought him in to replace the weak hitting Pedro Feliz and this career .304 hitter is slapping it around at a .484 pace right now with 10 RBIs on a potent Phillies lineup. It's WAY early, but he leads the majors with 15 hits and 10 runs (Incidentally, how great is Ruben Amaro, Jr.?)
I'm not a fantasy baseball player, but I imagine whoever picked him up is going to end up with great value at the end of the year, with all of the big bats that he hits around.
Tidbit: I might misremember, but he actually kept Chase Utley from becoming an every day player in 2004 when he hit .298. Then, in 2005 they moved him to 3rd base, opening the way for Utley to play every day and knocking David Bell out of a job.
