My team is below. I can add one more player this week. I have a bunch of closers and a set-up guy in Clippard. I feel like I could use more SP, but there's not much out there. I also don't have a C until Montero gets that eligibility, but I don't know if adding one is worth missing out on someone else. Who would you add?
Doug Fister (dropped and on waivers...could use #2 waiver to get him or hope he's still out there when he clears, then DL him)

Drew Pomeranz (dominated spring training...will be in Rockies rotation this weekend but will be on IP limit supposedly)
Chase Headley (backup at 3B after Wright)
Chone Figgins (same)
Rafael Furcal (backup for Castro)
Ryan Roberts (2B/3B backup)
Delmon Young
Russell Martin
Mike Aviles
Wilson Ramos
Alejandro de Aza
Daniel Bard (will take over for Aceves in Boston)
Jim Johnson (closer in Baltimore)
Bud Norris
Jhoulys Chacin
Jake Peavy (if he's back, he's an ace)
Jeff Samardzija
Lance Lynn (what's the deal here?)
Lucas Harrell (same question: what's the deal?)
Shelby Miller (will get called-up to replace Carpenter? Contending with Lynn?)
Trevor Bauer (stash speculatively?)
Julio Teheran (stash speculatively?)
Mike Trout (same)
Domonic Brown (same)

I don't need any more bench bats, even though I don't have backups for 2B, 3B ,or SS. I'm leaning toward Pomeranz, Lynn, or stashing one of the big name young pitchers like Bauer, Teheran, etc. Thanks!!

C: Jesus Montero
1B: Freddie Freeman
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: David Wright
SS: Starlin Castro
OF: Chris Young
OF: Corey Hart
OF: Nelson Cruz
Util: Ike Davis
BN: Bryce Harper, Justin Morneau, Yoenis Cespedes, Matt Joyce
DL: Carl Crawford

SP: Justin Verlander, Matt Moore, Adam Wainwright, Johan Santana, Clay Buchholz, Vance Worley
RP: John Axford, Carlos Marmol, Francisco Cordero, Tyler Clippard, Jonathan Broxton, Hector Santiago

i would fill the empty roster spot before anything else and maybe get Martin going, He hasn't had a hit yet but is due. If lucroy is available maybe him.

Pomeranz though Lynn is a very close second. I am just worried that Lynn won't get to stay a starter when Carpenter comes back.

take martin to play until montero gets eligibility... it could be a month before he gets 5 games in. Its the same combo I'm employing right now

Unless there is another injury, he won't be. Why not just go with the new flavor of the week at that point? I'd go with Lynn now. Slow and steady wins the race!

Go with Lynn, Carpenter is supposed to be out for months. Miller will not come up unless someone struggles or another injury occurs because the Cardinals want him as a SP and not put him in the bullpen.

Well Lynn was snapped up about 20 minutes after my first post. I was on my way home...thought he would be there at least for 20 minutes lol. I added Pomeranz.

Also, I've been trying to reply to everyone's threads, but I keep getting that the form I submitted was invalid. Anybody know what the deal is?
