I have a lot of options on my outfielders, and I'm torn on who to put there and my utility spots. I also don't know whether to start LaRoche or Sanchez at 1B. LaRoche might have better overall numbers this season, but he is a slow starter. Any help/opinions will be much appreciated! (Corey Hart is probably going to start on the DL, that's why he's not in the lineup at the moment)

ur pitching is looking very solid from the looks of your roster i woud say itsa 12 team league and you drafted heavy on pitching , i think i would give gaby a shot at firstbase and leave ur starters the way they are , thanks for the help on mine good luck
I actually didn't draft CC. I drafted Tim Hudson, and one of the guys (who isn't really all that serious about fantasy baseball) just wants to get all of the Atlanta Braves he can and offered CC for Huddy straight up. I told him (as did some other people) that it was a dumb trade, but he offered it anyways.
Wow nice trade for CC. Your pitching looks good with the addition of CC but I don't like that you don't have a big power bat in your lineup. You should be pretty solid with runs and average but you may have a hard time beating teams in RBIs and HR's.
I'd start Sanchez, at least until May, given LaRoche's history. Other than Alexei, you're pretty light in SB's; did you punt the category, or do you think Coghlan will come around? I prefer more RP - as you saw from my squad - but other than that and minor worries about speed, you're well set up.
I waited too long to draft a 1B or a power OF. My drafting strategy is to get the best players possible at the most shallow positions, that's why I drafted 2B, SS, C fairly early. I gambled on several young guys (Sanchez, Raburn, Jones, McCutchen) as well as Javier Vazquez returning to form now that he is back in the National League.
My roommated was drafting with me. He had the pick right before mine, and a couple of times took the guy I was thinking. Josh Hamilton was the one I was most wanting that he took.
EDIT: McCutchen is good for 30 or so SB's. Andres Torres should get around 20-25 but I'm not sure how often I'll be playing him.

Thats a great trade for CC, brought your staff from good to great. I'd probably roll with Sanchez in the beginning of the season at least. I also think you can wait and see the type of SB production that you're getting, and then theres plenty of options to improve it, as you listed. Good team though, definitely potential for a playoff berth.
