Fantasy Baseball Diamond Market - NL

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)


Matt Belisle and Octavio Dotel, RPs, Colorado Rockies

Colorado Rockies RP Huston Street
Street closed

Need saves? Huston Street (rib cage) won't pitch in another 2010 game. If your fortunes for this season hang in the balance and an extra save or two might tip the scales, maybe one of these two will help.

Belisle seems like the sounder choice here because he has better numbers and manager Jim Tracy's trust. Dotel didn't inspire in his previous two stops (Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Dodgers), but he has experience - whatever that's worth.

Then, there's also the fact that the Rockies are out of the playoff hunt now, so they may try just about anything. Rafael Betancourt, strictly the setup man all year? Franklin Morales, failure as closer in April? But if you're looking for an edge, Belisle or Dotel could give it to you. Four games left.
