W, L, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP

C Russell Martin
1B Prince Fielder
2B Ian Kinsler
3B Aramis Ramírez

I'm sure you're ready to shuffle some pitchers, but make sure that you are keeping your hold guys off the bench sometimes.

I think that you need to bench Winn. He is slated to bat 8th this season, which is NOT a Win-Winn situation. I would consider dropping him, and finding a better everyday RF.

If this was a 5x5 roto team, I think you would be in fair shape. In H2H, I'm worried about the inconsistancy factor -- some of the young guys on your team won't be able to carry you to a win on their own, but a bad week by one or two of them could almost carry you to a loss. In weeks where Carp and Lackey only pitch once each, you will be in pretty severe trouble more often than not, but I like Reyes and Holliday as anchors for your offense.

In H2H I prefer drafting GREAT hitters first, then a clump of moderately talented pitchers, followed by some consistant offensive "role players" late in the draft. If your H2H league allows for daily subs, maybe replace Ethier with a guy with more role-playing potential for those weeks where you just need that one extra SB or maybe that one extra HR -- guys like Roberts, Lofton, Monroe, and others make good specialists IF you can sub each day.

Great advice. Many thanks
