I am in a standard 12 team Yahoo 5 x5 ROTO League. This is my first time doing ROTO, but thanks to the drafting advice of the Cafe I have dominated all year.
A number of injuries (Tulo, Sandoval, Chipper, CLee, CYoung, Cespedes) caused me to just drop out of first place for the first time in a month.
Help me regain my edge!

I think Zobrist, Thayer, Fuentes, Thayer, and Downs are all expendable.
I am thinking of dropping Zobrist, Thayer, and Downs and picking up
Chipper (had him before and he helped me dominate HR, AVG, and RBI), TBauer(please call up soon Ari), and Scutaro/Wigginton/Aams/Paulino/Buehrle/Parker/McCarthy, or Wilhelmsen.(help me pick one)
