Angel Pagan has really been having a great season, and I'm wondering if he is going to break into the top 30 outfielders for next season. He went 3 for 5 with 2 runs scored, and is now hitting .297 with 10 homeruns and 32 stolen bases, and the Mets would be foolish to not continue to play him everyday to start next season.
Brandon Morrow didn't exactly finish the season the way he had hoped, going just 3 innings and allowing 5 earned runs and 3 walks in the loss to the Yankees. He is not going to pitch anymore this season for the Jays, and can be dropped in all non-keeper leagues.
Cole Hamels threw 7 shutout innings and struck out 7 while getting the victory over the Brewers. I have to admit I was wrong at the beginning of the season on Hamels, and he's been having a very good year. He should be back into the top 20 starters for next season.
Dustin Pedroia had surgery on his foot yesterday, and will miss the rest of the season as a result. If you haven't already dropped him, now is the time. He's still worth holding in most keeper leagues though.
Miguel Cabrera did not play yesterday against the Royals, and this is not what I wanted to see after him leaving the game early on Thursday. Hopefully he'll be back on Saturday, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Tigers put him on the disabled list since they are out of the race.
Someone who I thought was poised for a breakout this season was Franklin Gutierrez. He stole his 20th base of the season last night, but is hitting just .250 on the year. Maybe next year will be better.
Chad Billingsley had a nice start against the Giants last night, striking out 7 and allowing no earned runs (2 unearned) over 8 innings. Billingsley seems almost like he could be a sleeper next year, if only because he seems like he's been really inconsistent this season.
