I know some players realy heat up after the All-Star break after a rough 1st half. I point out Randy Wolf as one such player. Wolf has been a Top 10 NL pitcher after the break for a few seasons now. Who else is off or usually is off to slow start and should be considered a good pickup?

a true sleeper pick for the 2nd half is Teixeira

Toby Hall hit over .300 after the break last year, though one year isnt too much to go by

Tino Martinez has typically been a slow starter... I believe Jason Giambi has as well... Just gut feelings, though.

;-D Thome .. everybody from Cleveland know's that Thome is a key player to have in August and September.

And as for Wolf .. and his second half run's .. show "me" the money. I tried to explain in April .. 20 win's

Watch for Damon to heat up after the break as well.
