Some big news...


The guy in 8th place hasn't done anything this year, so the commisioner has decided to put all his players on WW. Here is the guy's roster...



C - Mike Piazza
1B - Jeff Bagwell
2B - Jose Vidro
SS - Juan Uribe
3B - Scott Rolen
OF - Jim Edmonds
OF - Sammy Sosa
OF - Moises Alou
UTL - Lew Ford
Bench - Barry Bonds*

Bench - Phil Nevin


Pitching


SP - Mark Mulder
SP - Greg Maddux
RP - Guillermo Mota
RP - Braden Looper
Bench - Mike Mussina
Bench - Jose Mesa
Bench - Jason Schmidt



Any of these guys I could make use of, if so, who?

if you can get shmidt, edmonds, and rolen. I would put in a claim for all of them depending on your waiver priority. other guys to take into consideration would be mulder, nevin and i would probably stay away from his closers. Mesa and Looper are bad too, but Foulke is on a better team.

Well, I'm actually going to not put in a claim for Rolen, because I have two 3B and they happen to be A-Rod and Chavez, so that's fine. If I happened to get Edmonds, who should I drop?

I decided not to do any of that. I made 2 changes right now and they are this...


Morgan Ensberg was on the WW (FA) so I dropped Nick Johnson for him, who was placed on the DL today.


I dropped Derek Lowe for Yhency Brazoban, who was also a FA. I felt I needed to do that because Foulke has... well... Foulked my team around. So, here's the new lineup...



C - Victor Martinez
1B - Todd Helton
2B - Chone Figgins
SS - Michael Young
3B - Alex Rodriguez
OF - Bobby Abreu
OF - Garret Anderson
OF - J.D. Drew
UTL - Eric Chavez
UTL - Morgan Ensberg
Bench - Jose Reyes
Bench - Justin Morneau



Pitching


SP - Roy Halladay
SP - Roger Clemens
SP - Jeremy Bonderman
RP - Yhency Brazoban
RP - B.J. Ryan
Bench - Brad Penny
Bench - Javier Vazquez
Bench - Keith Foulke




What are your opinions on my moves?

SS - Michael Young
3B - Alex Rodriguez

UTL - Morgan Ensberg
Bench - Jose Reyes
Bench - Justin Morneau


Pitching

Scott Rolen just became an FA today. Even though I have plenty of 3B's (A-Rod, Chavez, Ensberg), do you think I should still pick him up, just because he's Scott Rolen and should produce nicely in the UTL spot? Or should I just lay off and just not get him?
