That's way more teams than I've ever done. So I'm sure the auction was pretty interesting towards the end.

I think your teams is fairly solid although I don't like having so many old guys for a keeper league. Kent should be worth the 20 you spent on him though.

I don't like your pitching much, but some of your younger guys should be getting better. Clemens may be a waste, but it's worth the gamble if he plays. Patterson is good at home. Cabrera has good stuff, so we'll see if he can improve his numbers. I really don't like your relievers either, but your closers are decent when healthy.

Just try to say Wandy Rodriguez without sounding like Elmer Fudd. :-D

Yea, I'm not sure going with 18 teams in the first ever auction was such a great idea. I think I might need to trade away an OF for pitching. any Ideas?

Problem with that is I like your outfield. Their values are probably pretty even with what you paid. Lee and Vlad have been pretty consistently good and Crisp is definitely solid. I like that you got Frank Thomas on the cheap too. Lofton is always decent when he plays too.

I would say to look around your league and find a guy that you think has a glut of good pitching and figure out what he needs. Then figure out a trade that gives you both what you want. Just make sure you're not screwing one of your positions just to get a pitcher. Your guys really aren't bad. I just think they could be improved.

Nice team. Looks like your pitchin is the weaker part of your team, although not real weak. Hopefully foulke doesnt go down for u or u mite wanna watch for Papelbon, Hansen, or Timlin in Boston or some other young/new closers. Guardado is a bit of an injury risk too. Your RPs r decent. It would really suck if Clemens didnt come back to play. Dont really like A. Everett...but i guess if u paid that lil for him, then there mite not be any other SS worth getting for that price.
