Just drafted my money league 5x5 team. I'm wondering if there are any weaknesses? I'm thinking about moving a SP for a pure power hitter. Thoughts??

Lo Duca, Paul C NYM
Molina, Bengie C SF
Konerko, Paul 1B CHW
Weeks, Rickie 2B MIL
Crede, Joe 3B CHW
Tejada, Miguel SS BAL
Abreu, Bobby RF NYY
Markakis, Nick RF BAL
Ramirez, Manny LF BOS
Sheffield, Gary RF DET
Wells, Vernon CF TOR
Helton, Todd 1B COL
Taveras, Willy CF COL

Santana, Johan SP MIN
Harden, Rich SP OAK
Bonderman, Jeremy SP DET
Glavine, Tom SP NYM
Kazmir, Scott SP TB
Verlander, Justin SP DET

Wow... If that's a 12 teamer, that's a championship caliber roster. Obviously, your C sucks, but in a 12 team league, more than half are going to have bad C.

My opinion would be to trade some of your excess offense to try to upgrade at RP. Your relievers are good for saves, but unreliable.

Thanks for your help.

Team looks very solid and well balanced, but you are right. You have a lot of good starting pitching, but lack a little bit of power. I would say trade Harden if you can, he is just too much of a gamble. He has yet to prove he can stay healthy all year. These kind of guys (Prior, Wood, Harden etc.) are always hurt. Maybe package him up with Helton and get a bopper in return? Target an Adam Dunn kind of guy. He could really boost your offensive production. With Lo Duca at catcher and other high average guys, you won't feel his low average (prob. 265ish this year) that much.

Would appreciate:

Is this a roto or H2H? If H2H I would keep all the SP you can and just rotate them through. If roto, maybe try that package of Helton/Harden for Dunn, I doubt they agree to it, but it's worth a try. And with your high avg guys you won't feel the hurt of his weak avg as bad.

It's roto and there's no innings pitched limit. Thus I'm leaning towards holding on to Harden until I get a decent lead in the pitching cats then shopping him once he gets hot. I agree with you guys that I need a power bat in exchange for average. Thanks, can't wait for the season to finally start.
