That's a whole bunch of categories and I'm nott really familiar with a points league, but I'll give it my best shot. It definitely looks like power hitters are highly valued in this league and speed isn't rewarded as much. Also, SP's who can load up on W's and K's are more important than closers who will get you a bunch of saves. I think your offense looks pretty good. You have two high quality catchers and you could afford to trade one of them (unless of course this is a 2-Catcher league). Your IF looks pretty solid. You have a lot of 2B, none of whom are the studs at that position but they should get the job done collectively. Rolen appears to be back to his '04 form which makes that a great pick. Your OF looks solid with Manny, Gomes and Abreu. You don't have a whole lot of speed, but I don't think you really need much to be competetive in this league. Unless this is a two cathcher league, I'd see if you could trade one off for an upgrade at 2nd. SP doesn't look near as strong as it should be for this league. Lowry will be good when he gets back but his absence will kill you for now. I don't know if I'd trust Arroyo in a league that values W's as much as yours. Millwood has also been getting shelled this year and his new home park hurts too. Pettitte should turn it around soon which will help out a lot. RP looks decent. Cabrera won't have the closers job this year as Wickman, Mota, and perhaps even Betancourt are all in line ahead of him. If this is a league where you can keep a lot of guys, then it's a nice pickup for the future, but not so much for right now. Duchsherer should be good this year as he'll probably get a handful of wins and get a fair share of K's as well.
