Why don't you believe in me

Needing a little offensive boost? Take a look at this two guys who have been tearing up their leagues lately.

Jesus Guzman SD 1B- Guzman has always been overlooked his entire career. He was signed out of Venezuela in 2000, and now is currently the starting first baseman for the Padres. He was an afterthought this year because of the presence of Anthony Rizzo at AAA. Over the last 14 days, he has a .396 AVG, 3 HR, 3 SB, and 14 RBI. Most people have overlooked his recent hot streak because he is playing in San Diego, but they putting up decent numbers recently and you shouldn't forget about this friar 1B.

Coco Crisp OAK OF- Crisp's 59% owned rate in Yahoo leagues is extremely odd, because I know every team can use a few SB. With 10 SB in the last 14 days, you should feel foolish if he is on your waiver wire. He has twice as many SB as anyone else in the league over the last few weeks, and he can carry a team with his speed. He is on the shelf for a couple of days with a calf strain, so monitor that closely, but if he is good to go he should be in all starting lineups.
