Who have you picked up from waivers?

Postby Ray Zorback » Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:01 pm

I'm always amazed at how quickly some guys give up on players.

I'm in 8 leagues, all 12 teams or more.

So far I've picked up:

K. Seager, twice
AJ Burnett
Houston Street
Josh Reddick
Ray Zorback

I know this will make everyone jealous:
Eric Kratz (McCann is on the DL)
Santiago Casilla
Tony Sanchez
Josh Sale
Ryan Kalish

It's a 24 tm dynasty though. Pickings get slim with almost 1000 players (including prospects) rostered.

I scooped Ackley yesterday burning my #6 waiver priority in a deep 12 team league (30 player rosters with 15 player minors). I plan on playing the hot(ter) hand between Ackley, Weeks & Bonifacio at my 2B/MI spots. MI has been a black hole for me in this league.

Jholysys Chacin (hes hurt now but..)
Garrett Richards after he had a bad start

Its a deep mixed league so these guys have been godsends

Joquin Benoit was another but now that job has changed so its moot

Arencibia in another league, who has been extremely helpful with Victor starting ice cold

Nothing that will win a league on its own, just useful

Quentin
Viciedo
Henderson
Marmol
Salty (2 C league)
Dempster

I think those are probably the biggest names for players I will keep using. I stream a lot of players that don't really count.
