    Who to start?

    I have three spots available for five players in a standard 5x5 league:

    Adrian Gonzalez
    Alex Rios
    Nick Markakis
    Michael Cuddyer
    Mark Teahen

    I think they are all about the same, but I'm leaning towards starting the first three. What do you think?

    A Gonz
    A Rios
    Markakis
    The top two are a no-brainer for me, and I am really high on Markakis, he was huge in the 2nd half of last year and may end up being the best of all of them. But there is question. I would say my order is identical to your listing above, I question Teahan as a solid fantasy player here out and he surely isn't star enough to make up for that terrible lineup

    I'd look to make a trade.

    I would play matchups (like sit AGonz when they are facing multiple LHPs in a week...same with Markakis).

    I'm a huge Rios fan this year...so my starting 3 would be Rios, Cuddyer and AGonz. But matchups would rule for me week to week.

    Why bench A gonz against Lefties? He hit .312 w/ 5 HR in 141 AB almost identical to righties .301 19 HR in 429 AB. I too am a big Rios fan, and I would play the matchup situations between Cuddyer and Markakis
