As we move into the season's second half and approach the All-Star break, it gets harder to find impact talent that hasn't already been addressed. The majority of those worthy of your roster are either minor league call-ups or those returning from injury. Gaps in the standings are becoming more pronounced and instead of adding potential balanced, well rounded players is replaced by those with strength in a particular category where points can be won.... or lost. Just like some players may re-appear on Waiver Flavor over time, inevitably players you have dropped again receive consideration.
