+1... Adam Lind seems to have turned it on since the ASB. Hitting .311/.376/.557 since then. I scooped him up in 2 leagues in which he was available.

Ricky Nolasco.

Yeah this was a HUGE blow to one of my Fantasy Squads!!! Not cool man! Like ive been preaching, i Snatched up Homer Bailey lastwk before his 1st start against Florida and he put together another nice start this past week.

In Homer's last 2 starts hes combined for 13 IP, 2 Wins, 10 K's, a 0.69 ERA and a 0.69 Whip... :-L ... Solid Numbers from the former 7th Overall Pick!!! Lets hope he duplicates his late season output from 2009! ;-D

I am a liking Seth Smith in a more prominent role. Hopefully, he improves against lefties as he sees more ABs against them.
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

Jordan Zimmermann- I grabbed him in every league yesterday after stashing him the past 2 months in my dynasty league. He has had incredible success coming back from TJ surgery so far and reminds me of when I stashed Josh Johnson coming off TJ a few yrs ago. Albeit, JJ had a bit more time/success in the majors when he underwent surgery, but J-Z seems like he could be a huge late season add off the wire even though he's only going to pitch about 5 innings in each outing.

Anibal Sanchez- This guy should already be owned in every league, but in case he's not, go grab him. Injuries have plagued him throughout his career. Now he is finally healthy and dealing the past month 33 IP 3 W 34 K's 1.64 ERA 0.88 WHIP. He is a must own guy in even shallow leagues right now.

Those are my two biggest late season fliers that I've taken and like a lot in every league but not sure who will bust out as far as hitters go. I've picked up Coco Crisp in a few leagues and he's been tearing it up, but I think he is more short term fix (a week or two) than long term (rest of season). Would love to hear some more opinions from the rest of the cafe. Here is a bunch of guys I have on my watch list, but nothing strikes me as must own players like J-Z and Sanchez do.
