If you had drafted Manny Ramirez in hopes that he would sign before the season started and just be Manny for the rest of the year, you looked like a genius up until today.
You probably spent around a third round pick on him, and now serving his 50 game suspension, you're undoubtedly in need of some production.
Guys to consider:
Marlon Byrd: Although his production is already starting to tail off as of late, he's still posting a .319 avg with 16 RBI. Hitting in a potent Rangers lineup is going to help this guy out a lot. I put him at a moderate buy if you're in dire need of an outfielder.
Scott Hairston: Currently ranked 131 in yahoo leagues, this guy is putting up a .344/.412/.672 line along with 4 HRs and 15 RBI. His career .252 avg scares me, and personally I'd rather have Byrd.
David Dejesus: Miraculously available in 92 percent of yahoo leagues, this guy has posted 3 HRs and 14 RBI. Although he is only batting .248 at the moment, he is a career .286 hitter. Expect this guy to start crushing the ball soon in a surprisingly productive KC lineup.
