Fantasy Baseball Week 19 (8/13-8/19)

8/15 - Considering that Melky Cabrera (81% owned Yahoo) has been the #2 OF over the last 14 days, he will be hard to replace for the remainder of the season.  However, teammate Angel Pagan (49%) has been the only OF better!  If you are not comfortable adding Pagan or he is unavailable, Ryan Ludwick (49%) is hitting .333 for the second month in a row.  It is a shame that Cabrera tested positive for Testosterone, as he was having one hell of a season, but rules are rules!

CLOSING TIME! Fantasy Baseball Vision looks at the new closing situations in Oakland, Milwaukee, San Diego due to Huston Street's recent injury and San Francisco!

Can't decide which utility player to use?  Don't know which relief pitcher to leave in?  Did your player recently get injured and now you don't know if you should hold onto him or use the waiver wire?  If you have ANY roster questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment!
