I don't know, you still need a 2B and a MI and none of those OF are slam-dunk choices. With how thin 2B is, I might be tempted to roll the dice with Utley. If you don't get Utley or Weeks the 2B options get pretty bleak from there.

I think one of the 2B. What catchers and SP are available?

This is true, but only one team other than myself is without a 2b and I just do not think these guys are worth it here.



As for Cs and SPs...best C is probably AJ Pierz. SPs we are looking at the Fister, Kuroda, Haren types none of which seems worth it since I already have 4 starters.

Out of curiousty, why is Weeks ranked so high on a number of people's lists? The guy has all of one good season in 2010.

Weeks finished last year on a tear and as long as he is healthy can reasonably put up 20/20 albeit with a mediocre average. But 2B is shallow.
