Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market - NL

by Nicholas Minnix on July 29, 2010 @ 14:00:00 PDT


Fantasy baseball waivers and the acquisition of fantasy baseball free agents can make or break your season. Your fantasy baseball cheat sheets won't help you after spring training. If your team remains the same after opening day, you will have trouble competing in your rotisserie baseball league.

Do you need to replace your fantasy baseball busts? Which fantasy baseball players can you ignore?'s Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market gives you fantasy baseball tips and insight to sort through the masses quickly.


Acquire Add player (in most circumstances)
Watch Track player, add if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)



Scott Podsednik, OF, Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Manny Ramirez
Manny's PT snatched by a Pods

Public service announcement: Pods is now available in NL-only leagues. At first glance, one would say that the thrifty thief's fantasy value goes down substantially. Manny Ramirez (calf) will relegate Podsednik to the bench, goes the thought.

Not true, entirely. Podsednik's worth is reduced by a couple of notches; it's not wiped out. KFFL's Fantasy Baseball Alert on the deal gives you a better idea of the spin on this situation. Bottom line: You can view him similarly to the way you did Juan Pierre in the same predicament. (Excellent comparison provided by Thyrl Nelson of WNST AM 1570, in Baltimore.)

Shallow mixed: Acquire

Deep mixed: Acquire

NL-only: Acquire
