How is Gabby Sanchez out there?
I would take Tabata over Pagan.

Tabata and Sanchez are both on waivers, i'm thinking about picking both up if/when they pass.

yes Gaby looks real nice for the plucking. Honestly Boesch would help you in the outfield nicely. Tabata would be the other option but he has been really crappy lately, though so has Boesch. If you want speed, and you do need it, Tabata is the guy. Boesch runs a bit but nothing like Tabata. I like the idea of adding both those guys.

I really think this is the way to go. ;-D I would also keep an eye on Cuddyer. He has been hitting better lately and you could start him at 2nd over Espinosa.

Boesch was amazing the first half last year, until injuries in the Detroit lineup forced him into a bigger role. In the spotlight pitchers learned he couldn't hit a breaking ball. It seems he learned from that experience, and has been doing very nice this year. With Detroit's lineup producing, he is a nice fantasy OF option.

Recent news is that Tabata might be moved lower in the Pirates lineup due to his struggles. He has awesome talent and speed, and was picked highly in preseason drafts. The question is whether you think it comes together this year or not.

Gaby Sanchez was picked higher than both Boesch and Tabata in preseason drafts. He is the definite pickup of the bunch.

Denard Span is the reliable choice. He was picked in a similar position to Sanchez and Tabata preseason. Your looking for batting avg, steals, and runs. He won't be flashy, but he will provide that.

Considering your position: I'd pick up Sanchez and Span, dropping Fowler.

somebody with a higher waiver priority snagged Sanchez, but I put a claim on Tabata and picked up Brantley for the time being.
