Jimmy Rollins is SO overrated. I like Figgins to put up what people think Rollins will put up, plus he's eligible for 4(!) positions in yahoo. He's my man.

I'm liking Izturis too....look for Berroa to bounce back for a nice season as well.

If they let him run and that little bugger can get on base, he can really help you out in 3 cats (AVG, SB, R) and you can pick him up real late. (19-20)!!!!!!

But hey don't tell everyone!!

I was high on Eckstein as well before I read a quote from La Russa that indicated it was no sure thing Eckstein would lead-off and he may use Gruds there and bat Eck at 8. If that does happen he's probably only WW fodder in mixed leagues.

On the other hand Infante is tipped to bat leadoff for the Tigers and has multi position eligibility, including SS.
