Giving this a bit of a bump, now that we're a month through, and maybe people have noticed a few things. Here are a few players that I have my eyes on. Are any worst picking up?

J.R. Towles, Eduardo Nunez, Reed Johnson, Craig Counsell, Steve Pearce, Matt Tolbert, Juan Francisco, Alex Cora...

Slim pickings but that's what is out there. Nunez and Counsell have my eye because of Cano's hand and McGehee's ability to suck lately.

I'm currently first, so anything I do would be cosmetic and wouldn't really change my team as it stands. Hoping for a few call ups in the near future and for health in about a month...

I could not even imagine playing in a league that deep with that many roster spots. This is my first year playing 14-team league (25-man rosters) and I'm complaining because it seems like the pickings are slim. After seeing your choices I should shut up.

With that said, is your league a keeper? You seem to have an incredibly good lineup for such a deep league.

As for free agents, I'd probably just stay put. Cano will be fine going forward. You can always play Bautista at 3B if you feel like benching McGehee.

Help with mine?

Not interested in any of those FA pickups. Juan Francisco is the most intriguing name, and he's blocked right now. If/when he gets full-time AB he can supply a LOT of power, but that's about it. Definitely a name to remember in a 20-team league, but not worth rostering right now.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm just kind of sitting here waiting for Lawrie/Bernadina/Jackson to get called up, as well as Morales/Schumaker to heal. That will help my team huge.

And it's not a keeper. The draft just went really well. My first batch of picks went Cano-Bautista-Ethier-Price-Morales-McGehee-Walker, which filled a lot of holes. I was lucky on some later picks to fill out my roster.
