Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

You have a very solid 14 team keeper team going into the season, well played.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Appreciate the quick response. I was 99% sure on those 3 anyway so your input just makes it a done deal. Gonna be hard letting Kershaw/Morrow go back to the vultures in my league though. Word is a few guys are jonesing hard on Morrow as high as rd. 3. Glad I finally found someone who agrees with me on Joey V.

1 more question... I have the #2 pick and I see this draft as OF/SP heavy, would it be wise to take Brandon Phillips in the 1st and pass on a Manny/Carlos Quentin/Soriano/Josh Beckett/James Shields? It gets real ugly at 2B after him.

The Pacers do suck although Granger is everything we drafted him to be and more. I don't think Jim O'Brien is the answer. Yeah we can score but we couldn't hold a decent AAU team under 105. The Colts... In Polian we trust right?

You enjoy the torture of being a Cubs fan too? I do love the Northsiders but I've had to split my allegiances. I just can't handle being disappointed every year. Playing fantasy baseball doesn't help either. I've had Ryan Howard and Cole Hamels since their infancy so it's hard for me not to like the Phils.
