Yes ! He's a slow starter but yes although I would try to get Votto first.

Definitely top 5.
1. Votto
2. Strassburg
3. Trout
4. Felix
5. Pujols/ Howard

And I know everyone is going to knock Howard but for home runs and RBI's I like him. Philly has placed good players around him and to start this year healthy he is dangerous.

What you must remember is the type of format(H2H or Rotisserie) should play big into your decision on who you draft.

H2H - You need rely more on the top of the line guys: Halliday,Veerlander... Where as Rotisserie you need to pick pitchers especially that will cover you all week long: Lincecum(now a #3) starter for the Giants, Homer Bailey a true sleeper even though he threw a no hitter last season.

You can not win a Rotisserie league with all #1 pitchers.

As for position players the strategy pretty much stays the same you would like either the #1 or #2 for each position. If you see the #1 guy gone plan to pick up #2 almost immediately. If you wait too long you'll end up with #4 or worse and now your looking to trade before the season starts.

While most of us hate the auto pick, looking at who's going can help tremendously if you use it as a tool to help you.

I definately will, I'll be asking strictly H2H, the Rotisserie is just too dang hard, only good thing about it is you don't have to worry about matchups.

You could always do Rotisserie H2H. That combines the best of both worlds.

Been on both ends of those myself. Sometimes what looks good stat wise at the moment just doesn't pan out and you end up looking like a fool, or a tyrant

Did you trick him into a number one pitcher for a utility infielder?

It was Ryan Zimmerman for Brandon Morrow..Zim ended up fading and Sky dropped him.

My one Yahoo league is all trading, waivers are when they are no waiting period. Could be my downfall as I retire each night at 11 and they go thru around 2-3.
