Anyone else here think it’s utterly mind-blowing that Mike Trout, a 20-year old rookie that spent all of the first four weeks of the baseball season in the minor leagues, is now the top-rated player in fantasy baseball?! I think the game needs more players like this to rejuvenate interest in the sport. Before anyone knows it, he may have the American League MVP wrapped up before he’s allowed to legally drink.
On another note, what is everyone else’s top “waiver wire” picks for the rest of the year? I’ll throw out a few names.
Hitters – Salvador Perez, Justin Ruggiano
Pitchers – Michael Fiers, Marco Estrada, Ben Sheets
