As we move head long into the second half, we hope you are still alive in your pennant race. This week's edition of Waiver Flavor features two veterans who could go a long way helping you climb in the standings. After two years away, Ben Sheets has returned home to the South and may be the shot in the arm that Atlanta needs. In St. Louis, the Cardinals get Lance Berkman back, which should help Carlos Beltran and give Matt Holiday a little help in carrying the club.
Happy All-Star break! With the trading deadline now on the horizon, we will begin to at least hear about proposed deals. If you are in a standard roto league, average category numbers like BA, ERA and WHIP are getting harder to move. (Although it certainly seems easy to drop in these categories, right?) You have a better chance to make a move in cumulative categories like HR, RBI, SB, W and S.
