I would trade Holliday for Carlos Lee or Carl Crawford. With Hanley, Crawford, Roberts, and Kemp you will probably lead the league in SB. For C I like Molina or Posada and you could drop Lowell. I would also drop Lilly for Brett Myers immediately. Cantu' is weak and I would drop him for Adam Jones or Justin Upton. You will be ok at 3B with Huff and Davis all year long. Your staff looks pretty solid as well.
Pick up Molina before Posada. Whatever you do don't drop Cantu, that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. He is Florida's new up and comer, not to mention he hit 25 homers and 95 RBI's last year.

yea its my first time playing fantasy baseball, im a football guy. so im still trying to figure it out. i honestly didnt even know ervin santana was hurt since ive been so busy with work lately.
heres the starters availible
Aaron Harang Ben Sheets Johnny Cueto Jered Weaver John Maine Gavin Floyd Jair Jurrjens Justin Duchscherer Jonathan Sánchez Oliver Pérez Mike Pelfrey Joe Saunders Gil Meche Chris Volstad Phil Hughes Wandy Rodríguez Anthony Reyes Hong-Chih Kuo Paul Maholm Hiroki Kuroda
Ok when DL opens up, stash santana and your other arm on the DL, then grab Harang and Jurrjens. Jurrjens should be a QS machine this year. (That should help).
If Harang or Jurrjens get grabbed while you wait, then
1b options) Wandy, Reyes, Saunders, and Weaver (these guys can put up some QSs for you), maybe even net you 15 wins.
IDK about Sheets is he out for the year again? I know he's hurt but is he out for the whole season, I'll need to look.
I'd look into possibly if this is something like daily, Paul Maholm is another up and coming arm, but I'd only feel safe using him at home. His home/road splits are as nasty as Ervin's was in years past. Another example of home-only starters are a lot of the Minnesota starters: Baker, Slowey and Blackburn. You outta see their splits. They are excellent sleepers for home spot starts.
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!
