FANTASY 15 on iTunes

Fantasy contributor John Halpin hosts his fantasy baseball podcast three times each week.

Let's face facts.  Some fantasy baseball owners enjoy the action moreso than the long-term strategy that comes with the hobby.  The waiver wire is their salvation when an itch needs to be scratched.  To those owners, I present my "Divine Nine."  Below are nine players, eight position and one starting pitcher, owned in less than 50 percent of FOXSports.com fantasy leagues that could have helped your fantasy team over the last two weeks. 

Oh, and don't forget to listen to the latest "Fantasy 15 Podcast" when you are finished scanning.  Click the link on the right.  Enjoy!
