Look for some bullpen help. Maybe pickup Miguel Batista (TOR CL) if he hasn't been added yet? Also Piniero is hurt right now, I'd drop him and try for a free agent SP, maybe Kazmir or Cliff Lee, someone like that. Oh and Hidalgo sucks nuts. Maybe Nick Swisher? More upside potential and could be available...

In a 5X5 10 team league with the first pick I think you should have come away with some domination in one category at least. Your Offesnse is Ok, your pitching is OK, and your closing is suspect. I was in the same position you were in and came out with a powerful offense and good closers. I think you could use a little help everywhere.

You need a back up cathcer because Mauer is not going to make through the whole season with his knees. Drop finley and look for a better OF or something in a 10 team leauge I am sure Craig wilson is abvailble, also overbay is of no use to you. trade or drop him for a SP.

Take a look at my team please and tell me what you think.
Post is "go into battel with these guys???"

You have a lot of power-hitting 1B. Maybe you can move one or two for some RP or an OF upgrade.

Can you look at my roster? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=105580

...you need some help. Agree with Mauer comments and that you need to upgrade OF. With Borowski down and Hawkins stepping in to closer role for the first 6 weeks, you may have inadvertently bought some time. Another thing to think about is speed - in a 10 team league, I have to think most teams have a (relative) bunch of it and you don't. With the exception of two guys (the Roberts boys), you don't have much at all. I think this is where you are hurting the most. When you try to pry away some poistion upgrades, keep speed in mind. Also, I like Hidalgo in Texas. Lots of upside in that park. Good luck.

you got a well rounded team... you are not great in any category but u dont lose out in any category either,...... since u have 4 first baseman,,,see if u can trade thome for either gagne or lidge or a stud SP such as ollie, peavy or czam.....
