As we head down the home stretch, fantasy owners are either battling down to the wire, or trying to improve on 2014. It is easy to focus on categories to try and make your move, but often time "reaching" for a category will hurt you substantially in others. If you are in rebuild mode, there is plenty of young talent already in the majors and much more coming in two weeks. Good luck and don't spend too much time on football at the expense of your baseball team!
Can you believe it? As we wrap up the weekend and head into week 14, teams will hit the 81 game mark, exactly half way through the 2013 season. Middle is the key word in this week's edition of Waiver Flavor. A handful of tried and true closers returned this week; J.J. Putz, Rafael Betancourt and Chris Perez to be specific. Chances are these guys were reserved in your league, so the main impact is that Heath Bell, Rex Brothers and Vinnie Pestano return to Middle relievers (OK setup men). We also are getting back Middle infielders Asdrubal Cabrera, Aaron Hill and Jose Reyes from injury. Temporary help like Mike Aviles and fellow Middle infielders in Arizona and Toronto take a major hit.
