The Fantasy Fix:
New York Yankees
This is a list of players who in the top 10 of plate appearances: Vernon Wells, Lyle Overbay, Travis Hafner, Eduardo Nunez and Jayson Nix. If any of you took deep flyers on Wells, Overbay or Hafner in your AL-Only leagues, you have been rewarded. Wells had knocked 7 homeruns and 17 RBI’s, Overbay has 5 homeruns and Hafner is slugging an insane .568.
