In deeper leagues Kendry Morales and Conor Jackson are both definitely worth a look ;-D

How about Pedro Feliz? He hasn't shown it so far, but for 2005 and 2004, he hit about 30 points higher against lefties than righties, with power. He qualifies for 1B,3B, and OF with Yahoo, and he plays everyday ;-D

Hrm...as I have Pujols in 4 out of 8 leagues I'll throw out a bunch of names I'm using varying based on my team needs:
Kevin Youklis
Chris Shelton
Shea Hillenbrand
Sean Casey
J. Lugo/J. Lopez/K. Johjima (I had Shelton in that league so this is Util)

I'm debating in the Casey league whether to grab Youklis instead...I'm liking what I'm seeing out of him but I'm worried about where he'll hit in the order when everything shakes out.

Well thankfully earlier in the week I pulled the trigger on a TEX deal. NOW I just need him to actually hit some HR!

Maybe Phil Nevin will be rejuvenated in Chicago? He has good pop and could be useful if he plays everyday until D Lee comes back.

Broussard for now...looking at Morales as well. I also have Edmonds, so when he qualifies, I may plug him in there.
