Is Dan Uggla just old and his real (fantasy) productive days are behind him? Striking out at a 35% clip, which, even if it dips back to 25% like last year, still makes him pretty crappy. Sure, he's got a BABIP south of .240, but what's his best case scenario for expected AVG? .250? Probably more like .230. Are his 30 HR days over and done with? WW fodder?

Not a lot of Carlos Santana talk this year. He's on fire and looks like this is the year he finally puts up the type of numbers people have been waiting for.

Would you rather have Pacheco, Chavez, or Plouffe at 3B?

Roy Halladay is being crushed. Fortunately he is on my opponent's team.

Plouffe easily although there could be some long cold streaks. Pacheco hits like a utility infielder and Chavez is a part timer. i still think Plouffe is a legit MLB player that can hit .250 with 25 HR's. His power has been trending up for awhile.

Thought his last three starts made it safe to start him since he's getting two starts this week. Ugh.

Seems like he's been losing playing time recently. Is that not a concern?

It was only the 2 weekend games right? That was a message from Gardy for not busting his butt on defense. But the reality is that Jamey Carroll is his backup. I hope plouffe doesn't sit too much.

Given equal PT I like Chavez more than Plouffe. But if I had to pick one I'd take the guy I thought would get more ABs. Right now I'd say the safer bet is Plouffe.
