Well, Wednesday sure was exciting.
Carlos Beltran, just the biggest bat on the market, changed coasts and landed with the defending World Series champs, potentially filling a glaring hole in the middle of their lineup. A three-team trade got the Cardinals some much-needed help in the rotation and the bullpen while simultaneously giving a the talented Colby Rasmus an equally-as-needed change of scenery. Toss in the Donovan McNabb trade, the groundwork for Kevin Kolb-to-Arizona, a huge deal keeping Santonio Holmes with the Jets and Ervin Santana's no-hitter, and it was quite the sports day. And all that happened before the clock struck 3 p.m. on the East Coast. It also scuttled the opening paragraph of this column.
Yes, it's our job to keep you dialed in to all this excitement. However, it's also our job to make sure you don't lose sight of the guys who are already in a fine fantasy spot but are simply being overlooked. I promise you they're out there. You just need to keep digging at this point of the season. Consider us your shovel.
