He's hitting .289 with a homer and 4 RBIs.. Harper's hitting .265 with 3 RBIs and no homers... You're reading too much ESPN.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

It's funny because it's true. Harper gets so much hype from ESPN it's a joke. The ticker on the bottom when showing game updates always shows Harper's stats. Last night it was 0-3 but they always show it.

Looks like it's starting to click for Trout. A guy in my league (relatively shallow 10 team) just dropped Trout to take Berkman off the DL. I'm bidding a good chunk of cash and hooking my wagon to Trout while dropping Prado in the process. Prado has been solid, but I'd rather take a chance on Trout who could be much more than solid.

ETA: Trout missed another HR by just a few feet last night to the deepest part of the OF, and it didn't even look as though he swung that hard. He is strong like bull.

Plus Trout runs like the wind (err...swims like the rapids?) 33/43 SB in the minors, 4/4 in the majors last year. I think this guy could be Ellsbury except healthy...All's-wellsbury.
