This is your main list. I would consider punting Rasmus for any of those guys. I would also consider punting Pena, slotting Santana at 1B and Posey at C, though maybe you want to play the hot hand. I would just rather have that Util spot open to get someone in like Gardner, Crisp, Boesch or Belt. I don't trust Pena to keep things up long term.



dont cut pena, every year someone does that and every year he gets picked up and hits over 30 HR.

Gardner
MArtinez
Boesch
Bourjos
Crisp
Belt

that should be the order you want them.

True, he'll hit for 25-30 HR, but he'll also drag the average in a roto league. Since it's also a keeper league, going with upside might be a better move since most of the stats could be gained (by Belt) or make the newer player more tradeable (Gardner). I feel that no one ever wants to trade for Pena, even with the stats he provides.

I'm not sure how exactly the league structure is (I'm new to fantasy baseball) but if it's categorical, just pick up who you need to fill a weak point. If stolen bases are a problem pick up my main man Gardner!!!...if you are looking for someone to break out and get 20+ HR's I would go with Boesch...he is in a nice spot in the Tigers lineup.

Thanks for your help on mine
