Free Agent Watch: Week Three


Mike Gianella

If these players are on your league's waiver wire, they might be worth a look, depending on the format in which you play.

12-Team Mixed Hitter
Jason Kubel, OF, Minnesota Twins

A return to the Twin Cities seems to have done Kubel a world of good, and injuries to Josh Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia have converted Kubel from a platoon player into a full-timer.

I never thought I'd find people out there like me.

For years and years on end, I subjected myself to nothing but standard 10- and 12-team leagues. I thought I knew stress. "Oh, which no. 3 starter should I pick up for this spot start?” I would ask a more innocent, less world-weary version of myself. "Which decent outfielder must I claim as an injury replacement," a more hopeful, younger Ben would ponder in 2010. Those were the days of sound sleep and easy championships.
