Gotta go with Polanco on this one. The guy already has 12 RBI and is hitting .373 this year. In his last 5 games, he's hitting .400 and he's in a pretty legit lineup.

My choices here would be Rolen or Polanco,

If Rolen is on a home stand this week, go with him

I'd drop Lidge for Polanco.

I don't know about you but I have zero faith in Lidge and who knows when he will even be back. In my 14 team league he is sitting on the WW at the moment.

I would drop Napoli. He's not even playing everyday.

I'd drop Zambrano for Rolen. Polanco's hot, yes, but he did the exact same thing last year before petering out. Rolen might not be off the charts, but, he's relatively consistent when healthy.

If you're considering Rolen, be aware that he sits one game a week at the least.
