Week 6’s Must or Bust


Nick Swisher

Nick Swisher – 62% of Y! Leagues
8 R /  4 HRS / 11 RBI / .444 BA
Going going gone. 4 Homers this week ain't half bad. If Nick the Swish can actually hold a decent batting average this year he will hold some real fantasy value. He's on pace for way better numbers than last year. 

J.D. Drew  – 43% of Y! Leagues
10 R /  1HR / 6 RBI / .500 BA
Batting .500 for the week? Hello!! Drew is better than the majority of players on waivers.

Brett Gardner – 69% of Y! Leagues
8 R / 1HR / 2 RBI / 3 SB/ .375 BA
The little man with a huge heart. This Pinstripe hustles his butt off and his speed is top notch. Don’t be shocked if he leads the majors in steals this year. If he’s out there in your league – pick him up now!

Juan Pierre – 34% of Y! Leagues
6 R / 2 RBI/ 6 SB/ .342 BA
Pierre is off to a speedy start with 15 already. He’s only batting .230 for the season but he’s a career .300 hitter so no worries there. If Gardner isn’t out there pick up Pierre.

Jhoulys Chacin – 15% of Y! Leagues
2 W / 14 K / 0.00 ERA / .84 WHIP
The rookie is smoking right now. We wrote an article about him after his first win and and his next game didn’t disappoint. PICK HIM UP!

Jon Garland – 31% of Y! Leagues
2 W / 5 K / 0.00 ERA / .79 WHIP
San Diego keeps rolling and by seasons end these pitchers may have some decent totals in the WIN category. 2 runs in the past 27 innings. He’s not a strikeout guy but could easily get you 12-15 wins.

Rich Harden – 58% of Y! Leagues
1 W / 12 K / 1.50 ERA / .83 WHIP
Almost a K per inning so far but only 2 Wins out of 7 starts. Lets see what he does in the next start or two.

C.J, Wilson – 63% of Y! Leagues
1 W / 8 K / 1.12 ERA / .94 WHIP
The converted closer is making a name for himself this year. 1.51ERA and 1.10 WHIP so far this year. Pitched a 5 hit complete game last time out. Really a nice surprise so far.

Dallas Braden – 54% of Y! Leagues
1 W / 9 K / 1.69 ERA / .69 WHIP
NO HITTER ALERT!! Maybe everyone should yell at Arod? 
He’s a young and talented pitcher but this is his first sign of greatness this season so lets see if he can follow up with another gem.

Scott Olsen – 5% of Y! Leagues
8 K / 1.23 ERA / .41 WHIP
Olsen has put up 3 solid starts in a row. He’s yet to put together a solid season but he’s young. He’s putting up much better numbers than expected.

Tyler Clippard – 57% of Y! Leagues
2 W / 5 K / 1.93 ERA / 1.29 WHIP
2 wins this week and 5 for the season so far. Washington is waaay over using this guy but he’s producing so who can complain.
