Off the top of my head I like:

Mixed:
C Victor Martinez, Brian McCann, Pierzynski
1B Prince, Teixiera (historically heats up with the weather), Lee
2B Aaron Hill and Jose Lopez - no way they are this bad.
SS Reyes - move fast because he's hot.
3B Sandoval
OF C. Quentin - that .218 babip won't last
OF Matt Holliday, Adam Lind - these guys can rake and it's going to start any minute.
SP Greinke/Felix/Dan Haren


Bad buy Lows:
C Iannetta - He can tear up AAA pitching but he's got too many holes in his swing and Olivo looks fantastic.
2B Figgins - Victim of a poor lineup, he'll only contribute in two categories at best. He won't duplicate last year's numbers.
1B Berkman - in a bad lineup for a bad team, I think he's finished.
OF Carlos Lee, Nick Markakis, Jason Bay,
SP Wandy, J. Vazquez, Nolasco.

Very good list. Pretty much sums up my thoughts.

Gordon Beckham?

I'm making an offer for him in my dynasty. What about re-drafts?

People said the same thing last year

OF Adam Lind


He was overrated before the start of the season and he's even more overrated now
