LaRoche, Santiago, Rodney among recommended waiver-wire pickups
Welcome to the first edition of this season's waiver wire column. Each week, we'll offer up the choicest cuts of waiver wire goodness, paying attention to mixed, as well as AL- and NL-only leagues. Every league is different, and some players listed here may not be available if you play in a deep mixed league. However, we'll try to address everyone's needs, whether the depth of your league resembles a kiddie pool or the Atlantic Ocean. Also, you can safely assume anyone recommended for mixed leagues is even more strongly recommended for only leagues.
