Help on this? :-?


12 team HtH (R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, W, S, K, ERA, WHIP)

C M. Napoli
1B J. Giambi
2B A. Soriano
3B J. Cantú
SS M. Tejada
IF M. Teixeira
LF S. Podsednik
CF C. Patterson
RF M. Thames
OF M. Cameron
Util N. Johnson/M Ensberg (can also shift Cantu to 2B, and Soriano to the OF, giving me flexibility to bench any player, and still have a full lineup)
DL H. Matsui

SP F. Hernández
SP J. Beckett
RP M. Rivera
RP J. Borowski
P B. Wickman
BN A. Reyes
BN D. Willis
BN Jer. Weaver
BN B. Arroyo

I wouldn't drop Bush for DeRosa - Myer sure on the other hand.

Its the other way around, I would be dropping are you saying pick up Bush?

From Sportsline:

News: Mark DeRosa reached base six timed on Thursday against Baltimore to inch ever closer to qualifying for the league batting leaders. He was 4-for-4 with two walks to push his average to .343. He has 269 plate appearances, but needed 276 after Thursday to qualify.

Analysis: DeRosa, who has emerged as a must-start in all AL and some mixed formats, had a three-run homer in the sixth inning; it was the Rangers' first three-run homer since June 8.

I also have Derosa on my fantasy team and he has produced pretty good numbers with some slumps here and there. I don't use him in the lineup as much as I should, but could possibly use him as trade bait if he continues to produce the stats and everyone else realizes his success.

I picked up DeRosa as a bench player in two teams several weeks ago. His position versatility is awesome, and he actually, you know, contributes.

Nice pick up if you got him ;-D
