        You and I are pleased with Konerko again today. Tulowitzki's been disappointing.
        I drafted all offense first, but happily, Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy have been carrying my pitching staff.

          Deeeeep AL Only league dilemma:

          Do I start Chris Tillman this week (2 starts, MIN, NYY) or 1 start of Phil Coke (@ SEA, tasty) and 1 start of Fausto Carmona (@ MIN)? I'm leaning towards taking the Coke and Carmona starts, and sitting Tillman. I don't think he'll rack up enough K's to make the ERA hit worth it (and I don't see him getting a W or QS).

                Re: Fantasy Baseball studs and duds

                I just took a look at my team's performance to this point in the season. Some highlights (Jose Bautista, Jose Reyes, Cole Hamels, Chris Perez) but wow is that batting average column awful:

                Matt Wieters .233
                Adam Dunn .153
                Ian Kinsler .231
                Michael Cuddyer .230
                Mark Reynolds .198
                Gordon Beckham .208
                Nelson Cruz .219
                Andrew McCutchen .221
                Carlos Santana .196

                Yuck.

                Also, Yahoo, you might want to fix this:
