    Your lineup looks pretty good. Personally, I wouldn't use a roster spot on Charles Johnson, though -- backup catchers are a dime a dozen on the waiver wire, and I don't think Johnson is anything special.

    We need to know a little more about your league. How many teams are there? What's the scoring system? Can you put your injured players on the DL and acquire a replacement?

    12 team league, currently in 2nd place...Rotossuire (sp?) scoring, cannot place players on DL....question I have is, do I only get points for the players I have starting? what about utility and bench players. Also do I get points for my (P) pitchers as well as (sp) starting pitchers?

    I'd hang onto Charles Johnson for now. He's started off hot, and he's playing in Colorado, so he may be able to put together a good season. He's done it before.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    "P" is the equivalent of the Utility position -- you can use either starting pitchers or relievers, and yes, you do get points for that position. You get points for all your players EXCEPT the ones on the bench.
