I can't help but develop strong allegiances to players who help my fantasy league teams. That's how I've become a big Drew Stubbs fan. He parlayed a big spring training in 2010 into a job as the Reds' starting center fielder, but scuffled throughout the first half of the season. He found himself on my league's waiver wire in July when I decided to give him a shot. Over the second half, his combination of power and speed was a huge factor in helping me to my second consecutive league title. I really wanted to draft him again at my league's 2011 draft last weekend, but was beaten to the punch. Best of luck as a member of Justice Beaver this year, Drew. We'll miss you!
