H2H playoffs are frustrating things. The best team doesn't always win. It's often a matter of who gets hot at the right time.
That said, you certainly have a well-rounded team that should be as good as any.
I STRONGLY advise that you trade at least one of your Rangers in that infield. While all three are great, if you face a week where Texas faces some tough pitching, e.g. Oakland, that will effectively shut down your whole team. In H2H, that means you're gone.
It is also helpful to get more starts than your opponent, so consider possibly trading one of your closers for a decent back-end starter.

Good comments by duckbill. I definitely have to agree with the Rangers opinion. Great players, but if that one team has a bad game/series, so does your team. Try to move Young and move Reyes to SS. You have plenty of RPs to work out a trade too.

Holy crap. Your team is stacked. I think you have an excellent chance to win it all, but like duckbills said, in H2H anyone can win. I like the trading one of your Rangers idea too. I still can't believe you have that team in 12 man league.

yeah i got some unbelieveable picks in our draft like somehoe i got c lee and haftner in the 7th and 8th round, and i drafted brain roberts and then traded him anderson and inge for reyes manny and johnson. however i did take bonds in begining of the first round :-?

so

trading one of the rangers seems like a good idea, id rather trade blalock than young, who should i target for him? or i could package two of them together

also i could drop rodney (or one of my other closers) for king felix, chacon, marqius or claussen. should i do that? and which closer would you drop?

here are some trade i could propose

1. Tex blalock and rodney for ortiz and wright ( i would pickup a sp)

2. tex lee and blalock for pujols and cabrera ( i would use feliz at 3b or pickup hall and use him)

3. trade tex and rodney for carpender or another stud starter (then pickup francoure or sizemore to put in my util spot)

if you have anyother ideas please tell me them to

Very nice team. I agree with moving a Texas infielder though. Perhaps Blalock could get you Chavez or Mora and an upgrade somewhere. You could also move a closer. Blalock and Reitsma might be a good option to shop. Good luck, again, nice team.

Solid team. I echo the comments with the Texas infield.

Can you drop Bonds to open up a spot - he adds nothing for this year.

Thanks for looking at mine.
