I know he is supposed to bat at the clean up spot but I think he will lose the job quickly. He is taking up a roster spot, if you look at his career numbers and 'at bats' he is not too special. If travis hafner or huff in FA, I would grab these guys b/c they are tearing up the spring and having a bounce back. Look at ian desmond over rodriguez. he is the new starter ss but 2b eligible for the nationals and look at his spring numbers. I would definitely trade for a 2b. Kendrick, Stewart, Beckham are going to have big years.

I disagree with Husker about Milton Bradley. He routinely puts up good numbers when he actually plays and he's in a good lineup now batting cleanup. There's no indication right now that he'll lose the job quickly. You might as well hang on to him for the first few weeks and see how he does. I don't see Hafner or Huff as a big upgrade over Bradley. Especially in a 12 team league, Bradley is a good bench option.
You're right about 2B. You will most likely need to make a trade or just scour the WW for someone. Other than that, I think you should be careful with Maybin and Aardsma. Maybin has been highly touted but has so-far failed to live up to his potential. Aardsma has the closer job for now but he's not super reliable (though there are few closers who are these days).
In a 12 person league, your team looks good. Your pitching is pretty solid and your hitting is well-balanced. Good luck.

A few years ago he had a good average around 280-290. Now with this power if he can even approach 280 you will have yourself a serviceable second baseman.

I like the way you think. That's why I drafted him off the scrap heap in the last round.
