    So I picked up Casey McGehee in week 2 as an undrafted free agent and all he's done since is............be 3rd in scoring for second basemen and 4th in scoring for third basemen while being eligible at both positions!!! Can this guy keep it up? Will he get traded if the Brewers don't start winning?

    On a side note......I drafted A.Hill(2B,TOR) in the second or third round and he sucks so far.....and R.Zimmerman(3B,WASH) who has been good when healthy but can't seem to stay on the field sometimes. Should I just drop Hill or see what happens or try to trade him?????

    I got rid of Hill. I don't know how it's gonna work out, but I couldn't stand having him on my team anymore.

    I'd hold on to both of those guys. They're bound to get their numbers up, and they'll have to go on a pretty solid tear, in both cases, to do so. Jason Bay is doing the same thing right now for my team.

    My pleasant surprises this season have been Cody Ross (OF, FL) and Freese (3B, StL).

    Also, your Aaron Hill question reminded me of my own Blue Jay conundrum: I'm trying to decide on Adam Lind. I think he could fetch some pretty good value on the trade market, but I'm not completely sold on getting rid of him, either.

    I had Lind as well but dropped him about a week and a half ago and nobody has picked him up since......I still have him on my "scout team" but he's not really doing any better yet. I have Werth, Rios, Bay, and Garrett Jones to make up for him??!!

    I've played both. I prefer roto. I too landed McGehee around week 2. For the first time ever, I had the #1 overall pick, but I missed the live draft. Ended up taking Pujols when I think I should have taken Mauer to secure my catcher position. Here's what I have right now:

    C: Miguel Olivo
    1B: Albert Pujols
    2B: Casey McGehee
    3B: Chase Headley
    SS: Cristian Guzmán
    OF: Vernon Wells
    OF: Jason Heyward
    OF: Matt Holiday
    Util: Denard Span
    Util: Justin Morneau
    BN: Jacoby Ellsbury

    SP: Johan Santana
    SP: Josh Johnson
    RP: Mariano Rivera
    RP: Brian Wilson
    P: Jonathan Papelbon
    P: Jonathan Sánchez
    P: Shaun Marcum
    BN: Jon Rauch
    BN: Francisco Liriano
    BN: Stephen Strasburg

    My starting pitchers aren't getting wins though. Sánchez has two 1-0 losses this year followed by a 3-0 loss.

    My league gives 3 points for a "quality start"...... 6 innings of 3 or fewer earned runs.

    Same for Oswalt though!!

    Roto is the only way to go in fantasy baseball.

    You mean the 82 guy? While I'm a huge Lane Danielsen fan (we come from the same high school) I like this name more. It's my Twitter name and I hope to get it as my license plate when I get my next car.

    I also picked up McGehee...I keep getting horrible trade offers for him...I think he will keep it up and have a huge season.

    I have been getting hurt by a lack of saves and wins...I have Broxton but he has started really slow...but surely will pick it up.

    I have Greinke and Beckett...Greinke can't get any run support and Beckett just hasn't been right all season and now on the DL...considering dumping him.

    It's crazy to think McGehee couldn't stick with the Cubs yet has been a very productive everyday player with the Brewers since last season. Always hate when the Cubs hang onto busts like Patterson and Pie too long but don't give guys like McGehee a fair shot despite productive minor league numbers.

    I'll be honest, I've considered offering Pujols straight up for Mauer.

    I know I can't let my fanhood get in the middle of this if I want to be serious about winning the league. However, playing in a roto league, I'm second in batting average (9 points) and the guy who has Mauer is first (10 points) for average. And of course he's in first overall and I'm second, so there isn't a whole lot of room for me to make up on him. I can solidify my catcher and insert Morneau into my 1B position.
