Waiver Pickup of the week (Fantasy Baseball)

Jeff Smardzija- This guy is the real deal! He can throw in the upper 90's and he will get you strikeouts and an occasional win out of the bullpen. Dont expect him to be the closer while Kerry Wood is recovering, although he did get the save Sunday due to Marmol throwing 30+ pitches the day before.

Smardzija needs to develop a better off-speed pitch.

His fastball is good, but they're sitting on it. Even a 95 mile-an-hour fastball is easy to hit if you know it's coming. He needs to throw his split-finger more often, slower and with more bite.

Easier said than done, huh?

He's got a future, that's for sure.
