Fantasy Baseball Roundtable: Next Ludwick and LeePosted by Derek Carty at 7:35pm
This week's Fantasy Baseball Roundtable was hosted by FantasyPhenoms. The question was:
Name one pitcher and one hitter that is on the waiver wire in most leagues, that is worth picking up and could become the next Cliff Lee or Ryan Ludwick. Why them?
THT Fantasy's response this week was a team effort as we all threw some names around. If you're interested, you can find all of the responses here. Also note that we took a loose interpretation of the question, mostly just looking for guys who will provide good value but who aren't necessarily anything like Ludwick or Lee.
