The Yankees have a few holes to fill, and instead of making big a big splash like they used to, names like Rivera and Hafner are ruling the day. The Padres continue to add arms to their stable, most recently Freddy Garcia, but it's Tim Stauffer who will be garnering most of the attention in this piece. The Angels brought in a guy to work the 9th inning this year that didn't throw a single big league pitch last season even though they already have a guy who appears to be a fella who can handle 9th inning duties if he's called upon. All of that plus the plight of Michael Bourn (where will he sign), Michael Pineda (when will he be healthy) and Kelly Johnson (should you pay attention on draft day to the newest Ray).
Since we’re headed into the All Star break, we’re going to keep it relatively quick and simple here. It’s a short fantasy week coming up and lineups aren’t usually set until Thursday morning, so we can just ease into our Sunday, enjoy the games and then worry about everything while we enjoy watching the spectacle that is the Home Run Derby and the All Star Game.
