Just picked this team (note I was picking eighth)
C Ivan Rodriguez
1B Todd Helton
2B Chase Utley
SS Edgar Renteria
3B Aramis Ramirez
OF Vladimir Guerrero
OF Gary Sheffield
OF Matt Holliday
Util Wily Taveras
BN C. Shelton
BN N. Swisher
BN G. Jenkins

SP Rich Harden
SP John Smoltz
RP Francisco Cordero
RP Chris Ray
P Scott Kazmir
P Chris Young
P Jae Seo
BN Daniel Cabrera
BN Jeff Suppan

I think I am weak in pitching (and possibly steals... though Utley and Holliday should get 15 or so, and hopefully lots from Taveras). I like my power a lot (I could not believe Vlad fell to 8th). Also I plan on benching Helton on the road against good starters (and playing Shelton or Swisher if either has a favorable matchup). What do you guys think?

I think your offense looks good powerwise. I think SB's is probably going to be your lowest offensive output, but still not much to worry about thanks to Taveras. Your pitching looks decent but not too exceptional. I really like Harden and Smoltz. Your RP is probably the spot on your team where you could upgrade the most. Then again, depending on what Ray does, you might be OK. Hopefully Daniel Cabrera pans out with Mazzone as his coach (I'm hoping the same thing for my team). I think you'll definitely be towards the top of your league, just not sure about 1st place.

Definetly try for another good starter, Harden is injured and may miss the beginning of the season, so go after someone good. Also, see if you could get Curt Schilling at a very small price, don't give up too much for him, he was injured last year, and will probably rebound for a great year this year, but the stats won't give him a high value.

I'm actually working on a series of articles for the Cafe about that right now. Keep your eyes open for more details.

Nice job getting Vlad at 8. ;-D I would suggest playing with what you have, see if one of your 1Bs gets on a hot streak, then look to get a SP out of him.
