Here is my team. There is no DL, which I didn't realize. The problem is I drafted Greinke and there are only 4 Bench spots, so I need to add a SP.
Also, any tips as to my depth would help. Thanks.

1B Albert Pujols
2B Rickie Weeks
3B Pedro Alvarez
SS José Reyes
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Jayson Werth
OF Drew Stubbs
Util Grady Sizemore
BN Billy Butler
BN Casey McGehee
BN Matt Wieters

SP Félix Hernández
SP Jon Lester
SP Ubaldo Jiménez
SP Yovani Gallardo
SP Clay Buchholz
RP Neftali Feliz
BN Zack Greinke

Some SP on the Waiver:
Johan Santana

Drop Wieters...you already have a catcher and you dont need 2.

Pick up Cahill, Wilson, Bumgarner, or Hellickson. Id pick Wilson...he is their ace. Got pulled out of a Spring Training start but it looked only precautionary. Santanas gonna be out till July. Your team looks good.

I wouldn't do a thing. Santana is a bit unproven Nd you have the horses in your starting staff to hold over until Greinke returns. He should only be out 3 or 4 starts.

Thanks for the help with mine.

If anything I would dropWweiters for Wilson, Bumgarner, or Hellickson, but I don't see an immediate need. You have enough starters to fill out your starting squad and Greinke won't be out too long.

Or you could throw a few trade offers out there and see what you get back.

How many teams are in your league?

I am VERY high on Brandon Morrow. I know he's on the DL but he's only missing one start, in fact he's been pleading with the coaching staff to let him make his start all week. They are being really careful with him but I like him for 15 wins and 200+ k's this year with an ERA around 3.50.

HELP ME PLEASE??? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=425438

I like Morrow, but he is hurt to start the year too. If you can weather that storm, he would be the guy I would target. But if you absolutely need someone who can play for you right off the hop, I would take a chance on Hellickson. I would not argue if you prefer Bumgarner or Cahill, but Hellickson seems to have the most upside of that group. Wieters, your second catcher, is probably the best drop. Although I doubt Sizemore will have any value either.

You don't need two catchers....drop Weiters and pick up Brandon Morrow. I really like him this year.

Here's mine:

He said no DL spot...and since he's already carrying an injured Greinke, don't think another injured SP would help matters...personally, I'd drop Wieters and get Bumgarner or Hellickson.
