I just signed up for a novice espn 3 year keeper roto team, and i think i did pretty decently. I'm a big baseball fan and stats guy but never really got into fantasy baseball. I'm kind of missing an ace but i think my staff has some depth. it's ten teams 5x5... thanks for your input. I'm definately a little weak on the middle infield but they always seemed to get taken by the guy before me when i wanted them the guys on either end of me have j. rollins and brett boone as their MI. so i just waited for a while until i felt like i wasn't reaching because i need a ss or 2b. and criticizm is welcome

c piazza
1b m. texiera
2b b. roberts
3b a-rod

I like your starting pitching a lot, even without an ace. Some good strikeout guys, and you figure Hernandez or Wolf can step in if Beckett goes down with an injury (as he's prone to do). Since pitching is where you're deep, I'd even think about using one of the guys as trade bait to shore up some of the holes in your offense. You mentioned the middle infield; I also think your outfield is only so-so for a ten team league.

For a sleeper SS/2B, check your waivers for Julio Lugo (a 20 steal guy who'll score a bunch of runs)--I'm in a 12 team league, and no one had picked him up.

ur 4th OF might be weak but i like coco so i think ull be ok
2b should be alright as roberts should be steals and avg which im sure is what u were thinking when u drafted him
call me biased but i dont like kaz as a SS there are so many better ones berroa if hes the guy from 2 years ago or even late last season, adam everett, even david eckstein to some extent can help u there
