    NEW need help.

    So heres my team.

    I was rushed into a draft. Didnt have any time to research how fantasy baseball works. Scoring wise. So i doubt my team is very good. I need your help to move some players.

    However i did get 1st pick so maybe my team might have some potential.
    Our league is should be just regular scoring on ESPN.com

    Heres my team.

    Well Hermida and Hill should find your bench for Hawpe and Hunter. I'd try and pick up some starting pitching. Your offense is rather stacked. DL is disabled list.

    Might want to put Adrian Gonzalez in the lineup too somewhere.

    - Drop Frank Thomas (he was released by the Blue Jays)
    - Drop Andruw Jones... probably better alternatives out there

    I'd pick up two pitchers. Who do you have available?

    I would pick up a backup catcher. Catcher's are rested more than any other starters and get hurt more than any other position. I would replace Hill at the utilty spot with just about anyone else you have on the bench except Andrew Jones. I would play Hunter or Bay over Hermidia. I'm in a Yahoo league so this may different, but the DL spot is so you can put someone there when they are actually DL'd and you can pick up someone else while they are on the DL. Example I have Rich Harden on the DL and I picked up Volquez. When or if Harden comes off the DL I will have to decide to keep him,drop him or drop someone else. Hope this helps. Good luck!
