Waiver Wire Follow Up

I chose 4 players last week on my last posting to pick up from the Free Agent pool if available.  Let's see how I did:

J.J. Hardy- .321 BA  2 HR  5 RBI

Ty Wigginton- .368 BA  1 HR  4 RBI

Delmon Young- .294 BA  0 HR  2 RBI

Ryan Ludwick- .182 BA  1 HR  7  RBI

None of my choices really had a slam bang week like:

Mike Morse- .375 BA  3 HR  7 RBI

...but none of them went down the drain either.

I would definitely stick with these four over the next few weeks as I see them continuing to be productive.

Another good pick up, if available, is Marco Scutaro as he is starting to heat up.  He has a good chance for numbers this week as the Red Sox face the Padres at home and the Pirates in Pittsburgh.  Since coming off of the DL, he has raised his average from .236 to .278 and Boston is a hot team right now.

My pitching pick for the week is Madison Bumgarner as he has two starts at home against the Twins and Indians.  Bumgarner has had 2 quality starts in the last 14 days with a 2.07 ERA  1.07 WHIP and  13 Ks.
