    Great analysis of opening day. I think your site would benefit a lot if you did things like you did with headaches and relief geared towards fantasy geaks for every game. Just a thought though! P.s. Ive been clicking on the adds on here to try to help you out. I know its not much but oh well.

    Ian gets the start – Tracy …is Chris in the 8 hole a matchup thing with Webb or is it a spot you think we’ll see him often?

    Marc, it is a matter of Stewart being in the lineup. With Stewart’s power potential he will hit up in the lineup when he plays in place of Barmes, who will primarily hit eighth when he is at second base.
