1. Bautista
20. Asdrubal Cabrera
22. CC
25. Lee
27. Kershaw
30. Melky Cabrera
34. Jay Bruce
57. Drew Storen
58. Drew Stubbs
60. Francoeur

Sorry. I guess 10 top 60 players was more accurate.

That's how they're performing currently, but they're not actually going to end up there. Ichiro is 104 right now on the ESPN Player Rater (which doesn't seem to be the thing you used), but would you rather have Francouer? M Cabrera? No.

If I were you, I'd be slightly worried that I'm relying on a core of players who have no track record for success. Are they having their breakout year? Possibly. But I wouldn't sit on them assuming that they're giving me the same second-half as the first-half.

And Stubbs being rated higher than Francouer only reinforces my point of getting him in your daily starting lineup. ;-)

I trust performance, not predetermined player rankings. There's nothing wrong with riding hot bats. I would not take Ichiro over any of my starters.

Stubbs is on the bench because he's slumping. He's batting .185 with 9 runs, 2 HR and 2 RBI over the last 30 days, compared to Franceour's .237 12 runs, 3 hr and 15 RBI. And you'd be starting Stubbs?

That's why I'm in first place. I don't start the big names. If a player is batting .185, he's riding the bench. This isn't the big leagues. You don't let someone play through a slump.

Cory Luebke - get him on your roster, I'd dump Abreu or Willingham for him quickly and that's saying a lot :)
