Aussie's list is full of guys that hit .275 with 15-20 HR's and don't receive a full time job. right now this is what Duda looks like. And the WW is littered with these guys in standard leagues.

Other important attributes that Aussie drools over - no defensive value although sometimes the players pick up an interesting eligibility. And a high BB rate.

Bourjos with another HR? He's supposed to be a .275 hitter with 40 SB's and 3 HR's. WTH?

Agreed! Don't go ruining my hopeful waiver claim in my deep dynasty league. B-)

Personally, I think Duda has a higher ceiling than the guys littered in standard leagues. Not crazy high mind you, but worth a legitimate shot.

Blanks v. Duda is interesting but I'm not sure I'd sell out Blanks due to the Petco factor. This guy hits them into the part of the stratosphere that few others venture.

Heath Bell gives up a 2 out HR to baseball participant Mike Cameron and there goes the Luebke win and likely my 13 week unbeaten streak. !+)

Giants appear completely capable of knocking themselves out of playoff. doesnt seem like they need much help with that based on the way they've "hit" lately
