## Since the All Star Break...

Here is a look at some of the more interesting stats since the All Star Break. This is the time of year were us Fantasy owners look to pick up players for the home stretch. Last year my best pickup was Javier Vasquez. With Vasquez on my team last season I climbed a few spots in the standings in every league I was in (that led me to my 1st, 1st, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes). Hopefully this article will give you an inside look at things as the Fantasy Baseball playoffs approach.

Since the All Star Break I have recently been fitted for glasses. I went with the Scott Van Pelt look. I almost decided to get the Colin Cowherd specs but I figure I'll switch to those in a few years once the gray in my hair becomes the dominate color overtaking the dark brown I currently sashay. That's right I said Sashay!!! |
