The trading deadline has passed in most fantasy baseball leagues, so if you're going to get help for the stretch run, your players will need to step up, or you'll need to find some worthy free agents. While previous September performance can be a harbinger that certain players simply close better than others that doesn't necessarily mean Troy Tulowitzki will hit 15 home runs and knock in 40 runs this time around. However, if you could still pick up a player for little cost who has had previous late-season success, wouldn't you at least consider the possibility?

Well, let's consider them right here, right now. Here are some readily available players that showed us something in the season's final month a year ago. Perhaps they can do it again!
