How to Replace Rickie Weeks

7/29 UPDATE - Weeks suffered torn ligaments in his left ankle in what was termed a severe sprain, and head trainer Roger Caplinger said Weeks would be lost for two to six weeks. Another day and another top player is joining the 15-Day DL club.  Last night, Rickie Weeks injured his ankle while attempting to leg out an infield single.   So for the next two weeks(and possibly the rest of the season), you will need to replace him in your lineup, and you have some good options.

Stephen Drew Out for Season - Fractured Ankle

VIDEO Last night, Arizona Diamondbacks SS, Stephen Drew, fractured his ankle on a play at the plate and is done for the season.  Drew was tagging up from third on a sliding catch made by Ryan Braun.  Braun hit the relay man who gunned down Drew at the plate, which was perfectly blocked by Jonathan Lucroy. This is very similar to the situation early in the year when Buster Posey was steam rolled by Scott Cousins.  If Cousins slides, maybe Posey is still playing today.  But if Stephen Drew runs through Lucroy, maybe he scores and fantasy owners aren't forced to find replacements for top players at weak positions. I still believe that the runner should always try to crush the catcher, as that is the only way you will ever be safe.  I mean safe to score a run, not safe from injury.  This is proof that sliding DOES NOT prevent injuries. Anyways, the important thing here is that SS is such a weak position that Yunel Escobar(74%) is the best available that is under 75% owned.  If

All Star Break - Even without Kendrys Morales, the Angels are just 1 game behind the Rangers. How much will Texas miss Lee/Guerrero? All Star Break - The offense has not skipped a beat  as Adrian Beltre has done more than fill Guerrero's shoes, while the Pitching staff has not been great, but the Starters have been getting the job done, its the bullpen that needs some help. Did Oakland pick up enough offense to compete? All Star Break - No, 12 games out at the All Star Break is evidence enough.  The pitching has been great as usual, but they can not hit. Will Seattle trade Ichiro or worse King Felix?  Why not both? All Star Break - Ichiro has the highest average on the team proving he can still play, but t

Pablo Sandoval might be sitting there on Waivers, waiting for you!

Update(7/5): Since Pablo has returned, he has only ONCE gone hitless in a game, and has 5 multi hit games.  He is currently only 87% owned in Yahoo leagues, so there is a good chance he is still available in your league.  Only Adrian Beltre, Daniel Murphy, Danny Valencia, Mark Reynolds, Jose Bautista and Aramis Ramirez have been better over the past 14 days, and Sandoval is a safer bet than half of those guys.  Let us know who you would have to drop in order to pick up Pablo and we will let you know if its a smart move.
