I cannot remind myself enough to ride out the studs because it's a long way to October. This applies much more to hitting than pitching, but if you spend alot of money or a high draft pick on a proven stud, remember... it is still April! With that in mind, if you can improve your roster or add to categories where you need help, the best pickups of the season do in fact come in April. I have already found myself picking up a player I had dropped prematurely and hope it is the last time. Now on to this week's waiver tips!
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.
