    • Good thoughts, the reason i have O-Dog in there over Span for week 1 is that we don't know if Span is going to be the everyday leadoff man with Gomez, Young, and Cuddyer all fighting for a spot. I figured O-Dog hitting #2 behind Furcal and in front of Manny might get off to a hot start.

      I think Im settled with starting D. Murphy week 1 he has been on fire this spring and like O-Dog is hitting #2 behind J. Reyes and in front of D. Wright. A pretty sweet spot for both guys. Snider should be good but a risky play for opening day... $3500 on the line in this league too so I want to be smart

      • LOL well crap that's a lot of money. Yeah, in that case I'd definitely go with Murphy. Snider could just strike out a ton, so I'd wait. I heard Span was the leadoff - if I'm wrong, it might be smart to start Hudson, but I'm still not sure he does much. In terms of steals Span will destroy him, so ... don't know.

    • I don't know. Span has had a poor spring, but assuming he gets the leadoff, I'd probably go with him. Then I wouldn't start Hudson - his only value is position scarcity. Snider Murphy? Flip a coin? Go with the guy at the better spot in the lineup probably.
