Fantasy Baseball Waiver Wire Support: Jerry Sands, Francouer, Seth Smith, Izturis, Storen

May 8, 2011

Bloomberg Sports Anchors Rob Shaw and Michele Steele discuss the top picks off the waiver wire. Shaw tells us that Jerry Sands is a name to know for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He carries plenty of pop, with some speed, and a high average. He is well worth your waiver wire priority. The same cannot be said of journeyman Jeff Francouer. One of the nicest players in baseball, Francouer struggles to adapt to pitchers and while he always starts hot with new teams, he is bound to struggle once the pitchers make adjustments. Also on the waiver wire we like Seth Smith of the Rockies in a platoon situation, while Maicer Izturis has been red-hot and he has proven before that he can have some fantasy value. Finally, Shaw says that if you made the mistake of dropping Drew Storen, you should try to pick him right back up now. Shaw and Steele discuss a little NBA action between the Celtics and Knicks.
