Decisions stink, so let's try to solve a few pesky fantasy baseball lineup dilemmas for you.

At this point, you're either singing on clouds as your team fortifies its stronghold atop of the standings or crying yourself to sleep as you stay trapped in the cellar, with any move you make backfiring in excruciating fashion.

Let's dissect a new batch of pitchers this week. There's a star making his much-anticipated return, a post-hype sleeper who returned in style last week, overachievers, underachievers and one prestigious ace who I never thought would sniff the same area code as this column.
