As always, we're looking for names of players you'd like to see us comment on for our FAAB articles - players that are available in your league. Please make sure to check last week's articles (AL & NL) to see if we covered them last week.

On this week's list includes Justin Duchscherer, Ronny Paulino, Jason Bergmann, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Maicer Izturis.


Aaron Boone

Chris Perez again (I know you covered him two weeks ago) but with Izzy set to go on the DL (a joke they can put him on the DL despite his public healthiness pronouncement)and Chris Perez pulled from the airport in AAA - it seems as if he could suddenly be thrust into an interesting role in the Cards bullpen

OK i'm an idiot. I misread that article about Chris Perez. I don't know if he's necessarily going to get the call today - but it does sound like the Cards are going to attempt to put Izzy on the DL, so it still makes me wonder if Perez will get the nod.

He's more than likely finished, but given a new venue and probably a better situation, how about Jim Edmonds.

Thanks for the lists, as of now, Paulino, Hairston, Tatis, Bergman and Vargas in the article. Franklin covered last week but will cover again and bump his value. Reynolds and Vizquel covered last week. If Perez called up, will definitely be added, and if not, will be mentioned in the Franklin update, though McLellan could also be a factor. Boone may be added, though the return of DY probably blunts his value.

Fallout from the injuries to Pat Neshek, Santiago Castillo, and Jeff Keppinger. Matt Joyce.

Dave - I don't think that Perez closes that soon - my guess is that TLR will want him to establish himself with a number of innings before he entrusts him with the larger role.

We covered Perkins and Joyce last week - please check out the linked article above for my take on them.
