It's a standard Yahoo 12 team 5x5 league. I had the fourth pick.

C-Paul Lo Duca
1B-Todd Helton
2B-Howie Kendrick
3B-Chad Tracy
SS-Miguel Tejada
OF-Alfonso Soriano
OF-Grady Sizemore
OF-Nick Swisher
UTIL-Michael Cuddyer
B-Ian Kinsler
B-Mike Lowell
B-Jonny Gomes

SP-Brett Myers
SP-Ervin Santana
RP-Francisco Rodriguez
RP-Mariano Rivera
P-Jonathon Papelbon
P-Barry Zito
P-Joel Zumaya
B-Jeff Francis
B-Francisco Liriano

Also, if you would be interested in a Yahoo custom league, we need 15 more players. The ID number is 50544 and the password is drake.

It looks like you took RP with your 4th AND 5th picks -- that's a gutsy move, and i think it ended up hurting your offense alot. Your infield, outside of Tejada, is in very rough shape. Your offense seems fairly power-heavy, allthough I'm not familar with what kind of SB numbers Kendrick and Tracy can/will put up. You may need a bit more speed. If Zumaya wins the closing job (giving you three), you should really consider dealing one of your closers to upgrade at 1B or 2B. A guy like D Lee, Cano, or Barfield would be a good match for your team. Swisher should be eligible at 1B as well -- maybe swapping a closer and Helton/Cuddyer for a quick OF would be a good move later in the season, moving Swisher to first.

I would move Kinsler into 2nd base and ty to focus on a 3rd baseman. maybe you can get Figgins.. who knows. Myabe trade Jonathon Papelbon for Crede. BTW, Liriano wont be pitching much if at all in 06. Stash him on the DL or drop him. Look to see if Garza is on your waiver wire.
