Is this the year for Francoeur? The guy is hot at the plate, four multi-hit games in a row now. I picked up Austin Jackson earlier in the week, but I may have to drop him for Francoeur and consider starting him over Span. The Mets are batting him 5th against lefties, behind Wright and Bay. I replaced Ludwick w/ Arroyo this afternoon. I'm reluctant to start Vazquez this week against the Angels after he was shelled in his last start. Arroyo's match ups are too good to pass up. How about Daric Barton? Really intriguing in my league since walks count as +1 and strikeouts as -1.
12-teamer, H2H, points, 4 keepers.
Hitters: +1 single, +2 dbl, +3 trpl, +4 HR, +1 RBI, +1 run, +1 BB/HBP, -1 K, +2 SB, -1 CS
