That doesn't even include guys whose upside could put them well ahead of LaRoche this year as well:
I agree with you that in an NL-only league he's an interesting play, but there's plenty of mixed-league talent who won't be riding the pine come June.
I don't count your starred guys who probably aren't at 1B, but that's a matter of preference. The only thing I'll mention, why would he ride the pine in June? When Morse comes back, he's playing OF. So unless you think the great Mark DeRosa can unseat him, LaRoche will be hitting in the middle of that lineup all year.
