With that performance last night against a smoking hot team (Oak), you have to wonder if Jake Westbrook is starting to figure things out. I had him benched, but that was very impressive.

With that 8-12 record, he is probably available in several leagues, but b/c of poor run support early in the season that record should probably be better.

What about Kevin Millwood? His ERA is in the low 3's and a WHIP around 1.2. Another victim of poor run support ... only 4 Ws, but if the Tribe is starting to hit, as some have claimed here, wouldn't he be a good target for the last 1/3? :-?

One name I don't here mentioned very often is Ben Sheets. He has been solid the past month or so and I think if poised to have a fine 2nd half. Also, some people dismiss him because of his record. What do you guys think of him?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I am glad I didn't see this before. Almost on cue, he has given up 16 runs in his last two starts.

I know two guys who seem very high on him for the second half:
1) Me, been trying various deals to acquire him for three weeks, and
2) His owner in my league, who won't let him go for anything.

Not sure if he is much of a "sleeper" anymore, but Zach Duke has looked really good his last four games. If he is still on the FA market for some reason, I would pick him up asap.
