Well obviously Pokey Reese.... owned in 0.1% of all leagues and he hit 2 homers and drove in 3 runs today. Who said the man didn't have any power ;-D.

I really like Brian Roberts, his speed is amazing and he is probably the best 2nd basemen that could be on the wavier wire. 4 bags in one day... it's defintley possible that he could lead the league in steals someday soon. The only question is if he will continue to get AB's once Baltimores everyday 2b returns. If he keeps playing this way he probably will, of course his avg won't stay up but I hope he stays strong.

Honestly thier aren't ever any good 2b on the wires, I mean if Reyes is dropped pick him up, and in some leagues he has 2nd base eligibility.
Sorry my program for making sigs is broken

roberts is a FA in one of my leagues. I've been staring at him for a while now, but I can't bring myself to pick him up. . .

it is annoying. I'd love to pick him up wait a while and then trade him somewhere, but in this public league people don't seem to want to trade.

Please help me with my pickup problem

And that's not biased at all, is it ;-7

I'd say Willie Harris, or if you have a small/stupid league, Brian Roberts.

I was saying the same thing around this time last year about Marcus Giles and boy do I regret it now.

If Roberts is there grab him! Hes 2/5 today with 2 runs and another SB. Oh and matmat, for the love of god pick him up. This guy steals bases left and right, scores an ton of runs and hits a .300 average. He wont give you homers and RBIs, but he'll help you in the other categories.

Roberts got drafted in my league. This is a real good 12 team league. Any other really deep sleepers of guys who might come on. I have polanco but he has been horrid and he just got hurt.

Hairston is probably a free agent in your league. He should be coming back soon, and probably both him and Roberts will start. (one will probably DH)

Are you serious??? Jeez forget about him. I was very close to dropping him earlier today and this just did it. I'm not dealing with Polanco any longer.
