i've done alot of waiver wire work with my team and so far it's paid off. who among the following do you see as continuing their success this year?:

marcus giles
zach day
ramon hernandez
nick johnson

personally i'm thinking ramon (no way he keeps this up) and nick johnson. however, although i know nick johnson will be pushed back in the lineup once jeter returns that entire yankee lineup is murder. plus, hitting 7th or so means sori is driving him in alot.

Nick Johnson is hitting the ball well. Also when he gets dropped in the line-up he should see his rbi production go up. He will be hitting behind Matsui and Posada. Zach Day could be a real gem. Did you see the 3-hitter? Don't go ga-ga over him, but I think a sub 4 era and decent whip numbers are very possible for the year. Marcus Giles is doing well and I think he will be adequate, but nothing special. Hernandez won't keep it up. Just my opinions.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I think all of Johnson, Day and Giles will have very good, consistent years -- Johnson seems more patient and is driving the ball to the opposite field more; Giles has good power for a 2B and should score a lot hititng in front of Sheff and the Joneses; Day looks very solid -- and Hernandez will certainly improve, but not anything beyond a decent backup catcher in most leagues.
