    I have both Billy Butler and Chris Young(OF) on my roster. They both have their positives and negatives, and i I'm not sure who to start. Our league uses the standard offensive categories plus OBP and SLG. I'll post my offense below and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    C Brian McCann
    1B Ryan Howard
    2B Brian Roberts
    SS Yuenel Escobar
    3B Miguel Cabrera
    OF Carl Crawford
    OF Jeff Francoeur
    OF Billy Butler/Chris Young
    UTIL Adrian Gonzalez
    UTIL Justin Morneau
    UTIL Jim Thome
    UTIL Nick Swisher
    BN Billy Butler/Chris Young
    BN Shane Victorino

    Like i said any inputon who to start would be greatly appreciated

    • To Corey: Chris Young always over Billy Butler. I hate Escobar at SS, look to add Y. Betancourt...he's a young SS out of Seattle who bats 9th and with Ichiro, Beltre, and Lopez due up afterward he is lock in my opinion of 100 runs. He already has a 3-run HR and always has a green light to steal bases with his great speed. You gotta pick him up. Other than that, an amazing infield with a subpar outfield. I'm not overly crazy about your catcher as well.

      • betancourt don't run like that and escobar is a stud in what resembles a serious lineup

      • how can you hate yunel escobar at SS, for Y. Betancourt? Are you crazy...

        Escobar is going to have a great year... If you don't believe me then just look at how the Braves let Renteria go and they were fine w/ escobar taking his place... escobar is going to have a very comparable year to Edgar (both of which will be better than Betancourt).

        Also, its been one week so you didn't win yet...

      • numbers and potential point out the escobar is better betancourt from seattle. Not to mention Escobar is playing for the braves and has several positions he is available for. Don't listen to this guy.

      • ya young over butler...escobar has been outstanding thus far, but obviously i am searching trade possibilites for an upgrade...as far as my catcher goes he's one of the best there is, he's better than almost every other one..catchers are weak and to have mccann there for 20 homers 80rbis nd a 290 avg is great from that position...what u got against the braves lol?...as far as outfield, i don't think it is subpar..it is average bording on a little above average..crawford is crawford..francoeur is a 25-30 homer threat, and chris young is chris young..in my opinion..thatnks for the advice
