Nice to see an international presence on the board, welcome.

Love your OF.
Not in love with your P after Darvish and Latos.
You will struggle for saves. I'd drop Rondon and keep an eye on that Detroit RP situation. There's been talk of trying Porcello there.

Prediction: Eaton will be a regular OF in your lineup by week 2.

Rating: Good, for a rookie.

Thank you Irish Drunk, thats what I had in mind. Im thinking about dropping Rondon and picking up Brandon League, but it doesnt solve my problem really. What do you think? Should I trade Howard/Goldschmidt as Im fairly deep on 1st B and try to get an upper-tier CP?

Another approach would be dropping Rondon and picking up Fujikawa...but I just don't know what to do. I don't like Pence but he seems to be a semi-reliable guy and nobody accepts a trade with him for a RP as of now. Any further suggestions?

Try trading Carlos Gomez as well, for like a Sergio Romo or Huston Street maybe. He has some nice allure in roto formats. Eaton should be able to produce the way Gomez did last year minus a few homers.
