C- Y Molina
1B- G Sanchez

BN- Markakis (droppable?)
DL B. Roberts
SP- Weaver, Lester, Hanson, G.Gonzalez, J. Garcia, Jurrjens
RP- Axford, Bailey, Gregg, Salas
I would definitely NOT drop Melky. He's been a borderline top 50 player this year. Aviles is in a HUGE slump and is actually losing at bats to Escobar lately.
I wouldn't think twice about dropping Markakis. Always the potential for a a great year but it never really transpires. I'd say if you are looking for a speed/runs guy you grab either Pagan or Patterson. If you need HR/RBIs then get either Willingham or Davis once he's off the DL.
Corey Patterson is a pick up because he's with Bautista.
Next would be Morse and Willingham. Both are very streaky power hitters.
I would pick up Harrison if you believe his control is back. Next would be Lirano for the K's and maybe wins, Correira only for the wins.
Drop roberts for patterson first. Then Markais for either morse or willingham.
The FA hitters are better options.
