Andy Laroche
Troy Glaus
Casey Blake
Mark Teahen
Edwin Encarnacion

I'd go with LaRoche for the time being. Team looks okay, very strong on pitching. Might be too strong on pitching and why you're choosing between LaRoche and Encarncion. Your hitting is pretty unbalanced. Meaning, you have power guys in one place and your speed are separate. No real players that give you both speed and power.

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.

Yea okay that's what I figured. I just kept waiting on 3b and the 3B I wanted were going right in front of me, so after I while I just said I'd wait till the end. Also there were some surprise picks, like Zimmerman going in the 2nd round, that kind of started a run. I could have had P. Sandoval in the 5th, but I just don't like him that much.

Too early too trade, but you think I should be looking to move some SP for 3b?

On one hand, I wouldn't trade anyone right now. On the other, I wonder what you can get for Greinke. Maybe send out some feelers.

I thought about that, but I just think that he's one of the only "sure things" on my team. I did a ton of mocks and knew I'd be able to get him in the third, which I think is a pretty good move on a guy who can be the #1 overall pitcher. I don't want to give him up. If I'm lopsided on pitching, than I think that giving up my best pitcher would make the rest of them not look so good.

But I see what your saying, nobody is going to move a lot for Hamels or anybody else on my team right now. I think I'll just hold tight and see what I get for now.
