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)
Consider Add for speculation or because of need
Watch Track player, consider if trend continues
Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)


Brad Davis, C, Florida Marlins

At the beginning of September, the Fish established that Davis, 28, would see most of the action behind the plate for the rest of this campaign. Davis is a career .248 hitter in the minors. He had a perhaps surprising season for Triple-A New Orleans (.287/.354/.455 in 272 plate appearances).

This month, Davis is probably exceeding expectations; he's 12-for-53 with three homers (a third of his total with the Zephyrs this year) and 11 RBIs. He blasted a salami yesterday. Davis looks like a BA and OBP liability, but he had a solid walk rate on the farm.

Davis' run may not last beyond Monday, but in two-catcher leagues, there's no point in ignoring him with this little time left. This is strictly short-term advice.
