Geek, looking at your roster I would suggest you get at least one additional starting pitcher, for the short term at least. You only have three on your team and in April there are a lot of off days, rain out etc and you may have trouble meeting the minimum number of innings required. That is an automatic 5 point loss. Plus with only three starters you are probably conceding wins and strikeouts in most match ups. Most of your opponents will have 4-5 starters on their team (probably averaging 6-7 starts per week to your 3-5) and so will have many more chances to get numbers in those stats.

I might be in trouble this year with having limited pop in my lineup.

I've played fantasy baseball for a long time and I don't ever remember seeing what happened to me yesterday.  I had 12 batters on my roster.  The 9 in my starting lineup and 3 on the bench.  Every one of my starters and 2 of 3 bench sitters failed to record a hit.  Not one.  Goose eggs top to bottom.  The guy with a hit?  Melky Cabrera.  4 for 5, 2 runs, 2 RBI.  Shit.

Well my team is settling into a nice season of .500 ball.  The pitchers forget to win the games they start and my hitters occasionally put together a decent enough week to keep the box score close.

Ah, I see that my team has launched in to their mid-season collapse a little early this year. Lovely.
