I think one of the things hurting you is the slow start by players like Pierre, Beltre and Pavano. However, you have some shaky pitching in guys like Colon and Drese. I really like Hollins in TB and hope he can become a good player in your keeper league. Its tough to judge the depth in talent in a 14-team league, but I would say if there is any immediate deficiency, it is with your RP's. Maybe you can swing a trade with someone in your league.

What do you think of mine?

I'd agree that RP seems to be your biggest weakness. With the 10 cats you have you don't need to hold 3 RP that have almost no value since your league doesn't count holds. Marte, Sisco, and Rhodes. Turnbow is your only real closer. I know it might be a long shot but check the WW and see if guys like Bruney, Tyler Walker, T. Jones, Fuentes are still there. They are all closers right now and can offer you help in the save department.

Your SP is not a strength but with Buerhle, Colon, and Pavano if he can pick it up anchoring it you should be ok. I've seen worse in a few leagues and it got me thru.

As for your offence you are golden at C and 1B. That's about it. You've got a few guys in your OF that will do well with Cameron, Pierre and Hollins leading the way and chipping in SB. What you really need is for Sammy Sosa to get hot. Real hot. So you can trade him with his name value for someone better before he sneezes and gets hurt again. I don't like Ocab at all and I think he'll stay in a funk. Lopez is starting to slow down too so it might be time to trade him and see if you can get a more established SS or 2B like Biggio who can be gotten quite cheaply. Beltre should turn it around so you should be ok at 3B with Hinske as a backup.
