lol.. steroids is a touchy issue for me.. I dont really blame the guys for doing it... they had to... to keep up with the others.. even the pitchers.... was it wrong?? well yeah.. but I blame that on the awesome commish baseball has....
Looks good. The only quibble I may have is Andrus over Bartlett. I have concerns over Andrus BA. He's a good enough fielder that he won't lose playing time should his BA tank, but his SB will go down too if he can't get on base, then he's worthless in fantasy.

I don't think that is a major concern. He hit well in the minors and improved as the year went on last year (.253 first half, .280 second half). His BAbip was luck neutral .305 so you don't have to worry about that. He knows how to take a walk for a young guy, plays in a hitter friendly stadium with a good line up. He has much more upside than Bartlett
looks good, no real arguements.
The top 8 are pretty clear,andrus and lee are the only ? marks. The only other two I'd consider over them is corey hart. Lee is getting up there in age, though he seems to plug along pretty solid, andrus you know has speed but he's always been all glove, no bat. that .267 avg and lack of HR and bottom of the order...you have to really bet he will improve, which he may, or he may be stephen drew. Hart did go 20/20 two years in a row prior, and yes the BA slip is a concern, but he is apparently in great shape and increased his BB% last year.
anyway, looks good
My turn to give advice back! Triples?! That's different.
Anway, I think the list you got looks good. The one guy I would consider switching out would be D. Lee for Konerko. Call me what you may, but I see Konerko having a good season this year (more RBIs with Pierrre and Beckham on base in front of him). The risk with either Chicago 1B is the health, compounded by age. But that would be the only possible change i could see. Nice SP by the way!
Best of luck and thanks again.

lol.. thanks... Konerko wouldnt be a bad pick over Lee.. they are practically the same... but Konerko should be drafted lower... so thats why I chose Lee..
and thanks! Yeah some guy traded me Tulo/Hanson for Ichrio/3rd rounder.... and I made a bunch of trades but all in all I ended getting hamels/waino/Granderson for Reynolds/Pence...

I dont know... but that was the only thing I disagreed with when I joined the league... tried to get them to change it.. but they like it this way..
I took over this team for a dead manager... but I like the guys in the league..
