this looks about right. Only thing i don't like is keeping the two De La Rosa's as they are both recovering from TJ surgery. I am not sure when they are going to be back but I think they will both miss part of the season. So unless this is a deep league, i am not sure I would keep them.

True, but I do think they both offer much more upside than any of the guys dropped. Like you said though, depends on the depth and type of league. If both come back by mid 2012 I would say they are the best bets to give you value. Rubby may be worth hanging onto just for his long term value.

Jorge De La Rosa (elbow) has been throwing from 200 feet in long-toss sessions.
De La Rosa is considered to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from Tommy John surgery but will not be ready to join the Rockies rotation by Opening Day. Instead, they're shooting for a late May or early June return. The left-hander is slated to make $10 million in 2012


Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is throwing "free and easy" on flat ground from 60 feet, according to MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.
"Right now I feel more power than I did before, a lot stronger," said De La Rosa. The 22-year-old right-hander averaged 96 mph on his fastball before undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, so that's a scary thought for opposing batters. De La Rosa projects to return late in the 2012 season, but he still has plenty of long-term potential. Jan 9 - 8:16 PM

I agree with all of that. I just thought it was worth noting that both of these guys have been hurt. They both have good upside and are better than the other keepers listed but they also might be the first ones I would drop if something came along on the WW.

If you must follow the advice you've been given, but that is not a team, its gotta be the waiver wire from last year.

I like ensanimal's list above also. One thing about Rubby .... kid is filthy. He's been one of the more underrated pitching prospects. He could be back with the Dodgers by August. It could be a nice late season boost.
