Your team is bannanas! What are there like 5 teams in your league? or are all the other managers just idiots? Get rid of pierre. He blows and won't even start for LA, but he'll probably be traded. Your backups can fill in nicely provided the rays don't screw Longoria and put him in the minors to save his future free agent status. Love that starting rotation!!!!!! Hope Liriano staightens himself out b4 opening day!

thanks man! its actually a 12 person h2h league. idk why happened to let me get so many stars, but i like it! i actually had the first pick, and made a trade. i traded a-rod and raul ibanez for fielder, braun, and longoria. looks like longoria will start in AAA but i can wait it out!
Your SP is actually very good. Buchholtz is a stretch, but he may turn out okay. Gallardo will be hot and cold this year. The other four are brilliant. I would consider dropping or trading Longoria, he may not start the season in the bigs. I normally prefer to have at least three good RP, but I only play roto. In H2H with the unusual pitching limit you've got, maybe you'll only need two. But if you are allowed daily changes, you should definitely have at least one (preferably two) more RP, use them in the P spots except when three or more of your SP have starts.

yeah, i'll be putting all 4 rp in there daily, unless, like you said, i have more than 2 starters starting that day.
as for longoria, i might have to trade him, but i'd like to keep him and stash him for now. i got him, along with braun and fielder in a trade for a-rod and raul ibanez. personally, i think that was the steal of the year! but i guess we'll see!
thanks for the input! please keep it coming!!!

you don't think so? I got webb and hamels. i thought that was good enough, plus i got steals in liriano and gallardo, both of whom could be better than hamels or webb. i guess we'll see! any other thoughts?
