The NL East is going about how you would expect it. The Nationals started out terribly but have gone back on track, while the Braves have been consistently leading the division for almost the entire year. The Phillies aren’t doing as well as many would have thought with how good they did in free agency, while the Mets are disappointing as usual. Wait, is there another team in this division? Oh right, the Marlins. They’re pretty bad, but honestly, they’re outperforming expectations due to young pitching that has been doing very well.

We’re entering July. Up to 162 hitters would, as of this writing, qualify for the batting title with at least 3.1 PA per game. Do you know how many of those 162 players have currently a negative WAR? Ten of them. Do you know how many of those ten have under a minus-one WAR? Two of them. One of them (Yonder Alonso) is no longer part of an MLB roster. The other one, well, he is Starlin Castro and he should supposedly be one of Miami’s best players. Ugh.

If any of these players are available in your league, pick them up immediately. If they are not, try to make an offer as most of these names have little to no market value and can be acquired for pennies on the dollar. These guys are trending upward and could help you claim a championship down the stretch.
*All waiver wire add recommendations were available in a 14 team H2H points league where 4 players are kept and one minor leaguer is rostered that I am in. I know that doesn’t help.

Some pitchers are absolutely dominant to begin a game. Many even carry it into the middle and later innings. Unfortunately, there are those guys who just can’t get through the opposing batting order more than two times. Today, we will focus on these players who specifically can’t get through the order for the third time. You won’t see names like Edwin Jackson on here who is bad no matter how many times he has gone through the order.
For those who don’t know, the opener is a pitcher, usually a reliever, who starts the game and pitches an inning or two to allow for the starter to only have to face the lineup two times. Let’s get into it.
