If you have any Fantasy Baseball questions for our experts feel free to post them in post them in our Fantasy Sports Forum.
Young is 5th in the league in RBI’s and he is getting no love in the fantasy world. He is still young, he is batting for average and power, and it’s time to pick him up. We have been waiting for a lot time for Young to have a break out season, and it looks like 2010 is the year. (about 75% owned)
We don’t think Cust has a huge upside, but he should be a nice source of power. He is available in a lot of leagues and could be worth an add if you need any extra pop in your outfield. He is batting over .300 in the last month with good power. (about 15% owned)
After an amazing start Jackson cooled off big time during May and June, but it looks like he has his bat going again. He is batting over .340 in July and he is worth an add if you are looking at improving your batting average. He will also throw in a few steals and a good amount of runs. (about 50% owned)
Castro isn’t going to give you any power, but he has been batting for a great average lately. He is batting .380 in the last month and he has decent speed and RBI totals as well. It looks like Castro could be the real deal and he is worth a look if you need help at shortstop. (about 30% owned)
We have talked about Beckham for a couple weeks in a row now, but he is still available in a ton of leagues. He has a huge upside and his position eligibility makes him even more desirable. It looks like he has finally got his bat going and he should have a great second half. (about 60% owned)
Simon is far from the best closer in the league, and he plays for one of the worst teams. However, he is still worth a roster spot in most leagues. He will give you a decent ERA, and give you an ok amount of saves. Simon should not be available in 60% of leagues, add him to your team if you need help with saves. (about 40% owned)
It looks like Jenks is out as the White Sox closer, but it is yet to be seen who is going to take over. Putz is one of the likely candidates and he has been one of the best relief pitchers in 2010. Putz will have huge value if he ends up taking over the closer job. (about 35% owned)
Thornton has had some rocky outings this year, but for the most part he has put up amazing number. He is in the running for the closer job in Chicago and in our opinion has the upper hand. Whoever takes over the closer role with the White Sox is going to have a ton of value, and our money is on Thornton. (about 60% owned)
