Sounds fine.

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.

Wait, what? In what way is Wood expected to outperform Tejada? And is it enough to justify taking a risk on someone with no track record of success in the majors?

Wood at his worst is probably not much worse off than Tejada. Tejada is off to a blazing start which will be quickly halted. The fact that Wood has upside that can double Tejada's production (minus AVG) is what makes him a more valuable and attractive piece. Tejada's production is found by a lot of MI on the FA.

Agree with Marcheese. Tejada = Replacement player off waivers in 12 team or shallower.

EDIT: If it's deeper than 12 team, I wouldn't do it. Should've said that earlier. Though I was just talking to Figgy, not everyone to make this move.

Tejada isn't really contributing anything to my team that I need right now from SS...no power, no speed...he's done nothing that Andrus hasn't done better for me so far...so Wood is just a backup to Andrus unless he gets hot...no harm done

I added Wood yesterday, and now have the sonofabench problem with Wood or Andrus in my MI slot. Is Wood expected to start? Since I need RBI/HR more than the SAGNOF, I'm going to start Wood anyway, and try to either trade or drop Andrus.

Ya...I'll be faced with the same problem...but no harm no foul if Wood doesn't pan out...I doubt Andrus has much trade value...I have the same trade/drop problem with Shoppach...I feel he's not quite droppable but no one really values him in the trade market

I would much rather have MT . B. Wood is nothing more then a AAAA player. I heard that Scosia ( sorry abot the spelling ) doen't like him and doesn't plan on playing him much. If K's count in your league Wood could help IF he gets at bats.
