Thanks for the tip on Finley.

Now another problem - Mondesi on the bench last night, when he hit 2 HR's... oh well

I've tried cycling my starters this year, and I've ended up benching 4 HRs in favor of numerous 0/4s. START YOUR BEST PLAYERS! The numbers will work out in your favor in the end.

I'm in a H2H league and my weekly lineup is due on Sunday. I will put in some reserves for starters based on matchups during that week, but not regularly. I agree that you will drive yourself crazy micromanaging your team. Your higher rated players more time then not will put up the better year end numbers. You could get lucky switching them based on streaks but I would stick to your guns.

Yeah, hang with your proven stars.

Their stats will usually average out ok by the end of the season.

With younger or less established players, I try to rotate them based on pitching matchups, ballpark, etc, but leave your studs in.

I benched Adam Dunn for the first time yesterday, and he hits two homers off of Kerry Wood. I'm pissed that I missed the two homers, but I'm glad he's hitting. Now I have him back in the lineup, so he'll bat .067 for the next week...
