This week's fantasy baseball waiver pickups compare our subjects to the cast of this summer's first blockbuster, The Avengers, because obviously, the best way to provide measured and unbiased advice is to compare a group of marginally effective athletes to mythical superheroes.

As usual, we'd be nowhere without our friends at Yahoo! and Fangraphs.

On top of that, we're debuting a new feature in this week's column.

Clearly, my impact on players' Yahoo! ownership percentages isn't what I'd like it to be. As such, there are a few players that tend to appear over and over on this list, unable to crack the 50 percent ownership barrier that graduates them out of this silly space.

Rather than taking up valuable analogical real estate to reprise my thoughts on those players, I'll instead list three of these players at the beginning of every week's column, leaving more slides for newbies.

Here they are, your inaugural Seriously You Guys, I Wasn't Kidding All-Stars:

Aaron Hill (47 percent Owned)
Gavin Floyd (38 percent Owned)
Erik Bedard (43 percent Owned)
