    Last year's team = $$$$$$$$

    1B: Albert Pujols $
    2B: Rickie Weeks $$$
    3B: Gordon Beckham -----
    SS: Erick Aybar ---
    OF: Josh Hamilton $$$$$
    OF: Nelson Cruz $$
    OF: Carlos Gonzalez $$$$$$$$$$
    UT: Adrian Gonzalez $
    UT: Michael Bourn --
    BN: Jason Heyward $$$
    BN: Drew Stubbs $
    BN: Ian Desmond $

    SP: Felix Hernandez $$$
    SP: Johan Santana =
    RP: Chad Qualls ----
    RP: Leo Nunez =
    P: John Lester $$
    P: Jonathan Sanchez $$$$
    P: Justin Duchsherer -
    P: Shaun Marcum $$$$$
    BN: Mike Gonzalez ----
    BN: Jake Westbrook =
    BN: Joe Blanton =
    BN: Brad Penny =

    I think I did pretty well.
    Also added Morrow $$$, Scherzer $$$, Hart $$$, Hudson $$ and Axford $.

    Last year my guy was Cargo and obviously that paid HUGE dividends...

    I cannot expect a repeat performance but here's what I'm seeing so far in terms of value where guys are ranked:

    - - - Joe Mauer
    - - Carl Crawford
    +++ Prince Fielder
    +++ Mark Teixeira
    + Matt Kemp
    ++ Jose Reyes
    - Adam Wainwright
    - - CC Sabathia
    + Jon Lester
    - Zack Greinke
    - - - - Adrian Beltre
    + Kendry Morales
    - Brandon Phillips
    ++++ Tommy Hanson
    +++ Jay Bruce
    - - - - - Ichiro Suzuki
    - - Andre Ethier
    - - Jayson Werth
    ++ Stephen Drew
    +++++ Mike Stanton
    - - - - Vlad Guerrero
    + Mark Reynolds
    + Elvis Andrus
    + Max Scherzer
    + Pablo Sandoval
    - - - Casey McGehee
    + Brandon Morrow
    + Jacoby Ellsbury
    ++++ Curtis Granderson
    ++ Brett Anderson
    +++ Adam Jones
    - Grady Sizemore
    ++ Carlos Beltran
    ++ Manny Ramirez
    +++ Jeremy Hellickson
    + Mike Napoli
    + James Shields

    - Paying for/using high picks on closers
    - Paying for/using high picks on speed guys with limited power
    + Waiting on 2B for Aaron Hill, Gordon Beckham, Howie Kendrick, or Chone Figgins
    + Mets pitchers late (specifically Chris Young)
    + Drafting the BEST PLAYER (BEST STATS) AVAILABLE ON YOUR BOARD instead of worrying about positional scarcity and overvaluing infielders.

    I'm absolutely lost/intrigued with the following players:

    Any catcher before round 12 - If Santana is sitting there in round seven, why not pull the trigger instead of taking another OF? Most sites advise against drafting catchers early in leagues with just one C spot though...
    David Wright - 10 HRs two years ago still haunts. Is the 20+ SBs and 3B eligibility worth passing on a 40+ HR potential 1B? I DON'T KNOW!!!!
    Ryan Howard - His #s are on a steady decline but why can't they go back up a little? He's not THAT old, right?
    Jose Bautista - 54 isn't happening again but is 40 with .250ish and 10 steals possible? Probable?
    Justin Upton - Finally the year he puts it all together? Cargoish #s?
    Jason Heyward - Will this be the last year you can get him outside of the first round?
    Michael Young - Model of consistency, right? But it has to end sometime...
    Francisco Liriano - Injury risk?
    Alexei Ramirez - Why exactly is he rated so high?
    Alex Rios - Classic underachiever but his #s were pretty good last year. Why is he rated below his SS?
    Aramis Ramirez - Finished strong. But what is he at this point?
    B.J. Upton - The potential is always there.
    Dan Haren - Full season in the AL will do what?
    Carlos Pena - He won't hit under .200 again, but the Cubs offense is a lot worse than the Rays? How about the park?
    Derrek Lee - You can get a guy real late who was a star just two years ago.
    Adam Lind - Some places predict a big bounce-back.
    Colby Lewis - Ks repeat?
    Jorge De La Rosa - Stuff is good, team will be good. Potential 15-17 game winner?
    Edinson Volquez - Lost.
    Daniel Hudson - He was RIDICULOUS last season. So where's the hype?
    Jordan Zimmerman - Difficult to trust any WAS pitcher.
    Michael Pineda - Hearing a lot of sleeper talk.
    Jose Tabata - Difficult to trust any Pirates player period.

        OF: Justin Upton
        OF: Jason Heyward
        OF: Nick Markakus/Adam Lind/Adam Jones
        UTIL: one of those guys
        Bench:
        Russel Martin
        Doug Freese

        P: Fransisco Liriano
        P: Ted Lilly
        P: Ian Kennedy/Johan Santana (DL)/Johnny Cueto (DL) (When Cueto's off the DL, he's the guy)

          Alright guys I need some help here. I only have 1 move left and I'm trying to decide whether to pick up Jordan Walden or put in a waiver for Delmon Young who just got dropped.

          My Lineup looks like this:

          C: JP Arencibia
          1B: Miguel Cabrera
          2B: Reid Brignac
          3B: Aramis Ramirez
          SS: Alcides Escobar
          OF: Matt Kemp
          OF: Torii Hunter
          OF: Carlos Lee
          UTIL: David Ortiz
          BN: Brandon Belt and Carlos Beltran
          DL: Chase Utley

          SP: Cliff Lee
          SP: Max Scherzer
          RP: Carlos Marmol
          RP: Jose Valverde
          P: Francisco Cordero
          P: Aroldis Chapman
          P: Jose Contreras
          P: Jake McGee
          BN: Javi Vazquez, Jeremy Hellickson, Kyle Drabek and Michael Pineda.
          DL: Brandon Morrow


          Now waiting for Delmon is a bit of a risk since I have the lowest waiver priority in the league at 14 in a league of 14. But the upside is, more than half the league is out of moves.

          I am pretty well set with three dominant closers but this is a great opportunity to add another, but Delmon would also upgrade my OF over Carlos Lee and become an everyday starter for me.

          What do you guys think? and WHO do i drop for one of them!?

            I would definitely go after Delmon. If you could pick up a guy like that in a 14 team league, you have to take a shot at it. As to who to drop, that's a tough one. I would probably lean towards one of those RPs or maybe Brandon Belt?

                I'm not a fan of Desmond, so this is pretty easy. Castro. I like Castro a lot more than Desmond, b/c 3 out of my 4 leagues are points leagues all of which count Ks and BBs, so that probably affects my thought process even more.

                  Is Desmond Jennings a must add right now in the midst of Manny retiring?

                  I have huge holes at 2B (Utley out) and SS where my starter right now is Alcides Escobar.

                  I am starting Sean Rodriguez currently at 2b and am thinking about keeping him there to see what he does. But these options are out there right now: Juan Uribe, Marco Scutaro and Ty Wigginton. The first two are SS and 2B eligible, while Ty is just 2B. Should I pick up any of these guys or just go with what I have, and who would it be if I was to get one of them?

                        I know this is late... way late but i would not make that trade. Drabek is currently doing alright were Alvarez has been struggling and striking out a lot.


                        Do you guys think that JJ Hardy is worth the pick up at this point?

                          Someone just dropped Chris Carpenter in my league....pick up?
                          I need to drop Ricky Nolascblows, so a SP is a must for me.
                          Also available are Bumgarner and Cueto....thinking one of those 3.

                          League is 10 teams, H2H, 5x5 stats.

                              The 3rd Base market is weak. I couldn't blame the guy.
