Middling Infieldaholic

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

I can't get enough of these guys and I need help. I've got BJ Upton and Jimmy Rollins starting but I've stashed the 3rd Tenor, O-Dog and now Aviles.

Polanco-hitting .363 in the past month and won the freaking batting title last year yet I can't get anything for him but I can't drop him.

O Hudson- hitting over .300 for the year and on pace for 15-20HR, 85-90 RBI and 80-85 Runs.

Mike Aviles-more of the same.

Aren't these guys extremely under appreciated or have I lost it?
SP- Haren, DeLarosa, Sanchez, Nolasco, Price, E. Santana, Cueto, Buchholz

C- Wieters
CI-Morneau, Wright, Votto
OF- Kemp, BJ Upton, G. Jones, A. Jones, N. Cruz, Fowler
MI-A. Ramirez, Stewart, Asdrubal

You've lost it. Or to put it another way, would you trade away Rollins and Upton and be fine starting those other three schmohawks in their place?

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.

Scary thing is I was just considering that option.

Hudson vs. Rollins:
.300 vs. .289
7 HR vs. 6 HR
34 RBI vs. 25 RBI
32 Runs vs. 33 Runs
2 SB vs 14 SB

Is speed that important? Turn Rollins/Helton into Ryan Howard. Aren't I better off? What do expect from JR from here on out?

You are better on HRs/RBIS, not on AVG, Runs or Steals. Depends what you need.

Hudson is 13/7, Rollins is 20/30. I think Rollins is overrated, but he's a much better player than Hudson.

Yeah, I think we agree more than we disagree here. Hudson a replaceable piece and not even comparable to JR, but Jimmy Rollins may be very overrated when compared to other first rounders.
