Comments: I was trying to build my team around Gagne, but I had to choose Bonds or Gagne, and I chose Bonds.

If you look at it, my team seems pretty old. But I have faith in them...

People gave me heat for taking Griffey, but what the heck, you know? It is worth a shot.

Jose Valentine will be a darkhorse this year, in my opinion. He has always been underrated.

Your Thoughts?

overall, a pretty solid team. Don't worry about your choice of Bonds over Gagne. Both were the right choice.

Your team does look a little old so you might want to keep a close eye on injuries. pick up some backups for injury cases like Griffey. (although he might have a good season. who knows? good luck with that gamble.)

Overall, a good team

if you get a chacne could you look at mine?

Look for outfield back-up for when Griffey goes down, because he will at some point. He's a china doll these days.

How many teams are in your league? I'm hoping a lot. I wouldn't want to go into the season with either J.T. Snow or Joe Randa starting, let alone both of them. Plus you're expecting numbers from Mackowiak and Grissom? And you have Benito Santiago on your bench! BENITO SANTIAGO!!! There has to be better options on the waiver wire. Plus you have Wilson Alvarez and Tim Worrell as your only two relief pitchers...unless your league counts holds and not saves neither of them are particularly valuable. It looks like you have a lot of work to do.

It is a full league on Yahoo of about 9 people.

Yeah, it is all NL, and the NL isn't very good, in my opinion...

Joe Randa might have a good season, I mean I saw him up close with the Royals for 5 years and he never really gets hurt...

To answer your question, we were only allowed 2 RP, just "Relief" no difference between them and closers, which were the same. So I don't know about the 2 guys I drafted but their stats looked... passable...

They were the best I could find. Also, who should I play, JT Snow or Jeff Bagwell? (1B)

I'll take you guys' advice for the Center Fielder. Can you sign people on Yahoo once the season begins?
