    You already have three extremely talented first basemen. Garret Atkins has been batting a little better lately. Although he still isn't over .200, so don't keep him. He's not going to get much better. Adam LaRoche, though, is going to get that average up. I think he's batting around .240 right now. I live around State College, Pennsylvania, so I can pick up all the Pirates games on FSN Pittsburgh, and I watch them regularly. I noticed that around June and July Adam starts to hit a lot more homeruns and he also gets on base more. Look for LaRoche to start hitting tons of doubles and homeruns sometime very soon. Keep him. Good luck with your fantasy team!

    No, you don't really need either one with all that depth at 1st base. However, if you do want to keep one, go with LaRoche. He's having a good season despite the poor batting average. If Atkins gets traded, he might be more valuable though.
