Let's finish up the list (started yesterday) of this year's surprising power performances and see who's for real and who you should sell high.

When Brad Hawpe hit the DL today, it immediately cleared up room for a couple of other Rockies to see an increase in playing time.

It's Saturday and that means it's time to look at next week's two-start pitchers. There are plenty of good options at the top as well as some intriguing gambles toward the middle of the list.

Fantasy baseball owners can easily fall in love with young players. They normally come cheap on draft day and are full of potential. Few, but some, actually live up to that potential in their first season or two. Most, however, go through the normal struggles of a young ballplayer getting their first taste of the big leagues. Here are three young players that have seen early season success, but make for a great sell high.
You may have noticed that I have stopped doing daily recaps. I did these last season, but the are very time consuming and, apparently, not as popular as some other features on this site. Honestly, I'd rather dedicate time to more analytical articles anyway. There are plenty of sites that provide quality rundowns.
In place of the recaps I have added a widget to the left sidebar which I will use to make small news and notes type posts. This will make player news easy to publish without using a full post that would clog up the front page here.
Are there any features you'd like to see more of here? Anything that isn't here that you'd like to see? Leave your feedback in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
