Would you drop Clay Buchholz for Tillman? Buchholz has had 1 good & 2 bad starts now. Also, would you rather have Garko at 1st over Aubry Huff? What about Wieters to catcher and V-Mart to 1st instead? Is Kyle Blanks a better option at 1st? Really appreciate your articles and I hope to hear your opinion. I already put in for Tillman and drop Buchholz, but ESPN has Tillman on 3 day waiver. Also, already dropped Huff for Kyle Blanks, then dropped Blanks for Garko. Now considering dropping Garko, getting Weiters, and moving V-Mart to 1st base. Blanks, Huff, Wieters are all available. I'm in a quandry about this. Thanks!!!

I do like Tillman more than Buchholz for the rest of the season. The hitting question is a toughie -- I want to say Wieters is the best option for you, but I think that a power-type 1B will probably help out more. I'm inclined to say Huff for now, but you should really go with your gut on this one.

I decidedto go with Kyle Blanks and despite his bad hairdo, I'm feeling like a genius right now. I still have a lot of love for Tillman, but I'm taking a wait & see approach, as he doesn't seem to be on the radar in my league. He may be on my roster soon if he can translate his skills to some success this year. If I was in a keeper, I'd take a flyer cause I think he has the skill set to suceed. I just want to say thanks for taking the time to answer my question and also that I love your articles. Keep up the great work!!!
