Your team looks good, but I'd consider trading a slugger for an ace closer

I think you're asking for trouble here: I-Rod, Sexson, Garciaparra, Piazza, Ordonez, Wilson, Bonds, Sosa, Gonzalez, Wood, Miller, Pettite. All of these guys are either coming off of injuries or are trying to keep their numbers up despite being older and supposedly not using steroids (supposing that they ever did)...I-Rod, Bonds, Sosa, Gonzalez. If everyone stays healthy and produces as they have the last few years you should be good to go, but that's a lot of ifs.

I'd be worried. Your 3B is rather weak (Is ensberg even starting consistently?) and there is a rather high chance that every single one of your OF could see the DL for a rather fair amount of time, or take a few days off every week. Then you throw in Piazza and Sexson, Wood, Dave Roberts, Wade Miller, and Pettite, and I think injuries could be a huge concern for you.

I waited forever to draft a 3b, so Ensberg was basically the only player available.

As far as injuries are considered, yes, it's something to think about, but I think people far undervalue players who have injuries in the past. Fact of the matter is that anyone can get injured. Just ask Garret Anderson owners last year.

You all could be right, I could be asking for trouble. For those who have rated, take a look at the other teams in the league. See how I stack up in comparison. This isn't a 12 team standard league, so I think I rate pretty favorably. Thanks. ;-D
