This is my first time doing fantasy ball, i'm in a 12 team roto Yahoo League.

C D. Miller (Mil - C)
1B D. Lee (ChC - 1B)
2B P. Polanco (Phi - 2B,3B
3B T. Glaus (Ari - 3B)
SS M. Tejada (Bal - SS)
IF R. Sexson (Sea - 1B)
LF E. Byrnes (Oak - LF,CF,RF)
CF T. Hunter (Min - CF)
RF L. Walker (StL - RF)
OF M. Cameron (NYM - CF)
Util R. Palmeiro (Bal - 1B)
Util D. Young (Det - 1B)
Util L. Bigbie (Bal - LF,CF)
Util P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS)
BN K. Mench (Tex - LF,CF,RF)
BN R. Klesko (SD - 1B,LF)

SP P. Martinez (NYM - SP)
SP J. Beckett (Fla - SP)
SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
RP M. Rivera (NYY - RP)
RP T. Percival (Det - RP)
RP L. Hawkins (ChC - RP)
P D. Willis (Fla - SP)
P B. Colon (LAA - SP)
P K. Rogers (Tex - SP)

My feeling is that I have a very strong pitching staff, very weak 2nd base and catcher, but still a stong offense despite my weak OF. My offense is fairly injury prone with Sexton and Glaus, but both were late picks.

Welcome to the cafe! ;-D

Your pitching is reasonably strong, which may have cost you a bit in the hitting. Don't expect a lot out of Rogers this year - I would expect there to be better prospects available on FA.

As for hitting, C & 2B are weak, as you say. But there must surely be better than Miller available in a 12-team league. What about Hernandez, Lieberthal, Pierzynski or Barrett? Surely one of them must have gone undrafted. As for 2B, that is very thin this year, but it's possible that Utley or Castillo may still be out there, or even Iguchi, as a longshot.

Did well to get Sexson late, don't worry about him.

OF is weak as you say - start Mench over Cameron, who probably won't be fit for opening day. You do really need to bolster your hitting staff somehow. You may need to be prepared to trade someone like Sexson to get an upgrade at OF.

Good luck!

Thanks for the advice and the welcome, I'll be sure to look into your suggestions. I definatly think I need to do something, and I feel I have enough 1st basemen to make a good trade. I'll keep you posted on any offers I make.

I think you might want to get rid of walker. I know that he plays in a homerun hitters park but he is getting old. Your Batting really needs to improve to be a contender in your league. Your pitching will help you but it wont carry you forever.Just look to trade and make sure you keep checking the wire.
