There's got to be a better SS than Hill out there. Stephen Drew? Cabrera? Even Alex Gonzalez should do decent in Cincinnati... Not a bad team overall, but you shouldn't have an uncertainty at one of your infield spots, especially in a 10 team league. I'd also probably play Nomar over Sexson....but you'll have to after a month anyway. :)

I think you better hit the waiver quick. You've got a lot of injury concern in Nomar and Baldi, and you do need another SS. You can probably just get a waiver on Markakis, um .... don't know about first, but yeah Drew at SS. For a start.

For a 10 teamer that is probably a 5 or 6 out of 10. Sorry man you just seem to have a lot of holes.

Thanks for the feedback. Cabrera, Markakis, Drew, and Gonzalez are all on other teams. I'm thinking of Rich Aurillia ( Stats: http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5523 ), but I'm not entirely sold on him.

Even if you have a DL spot, there probably isn't much reason to occupy it w/ Pedro. Your pitching is very strong, but you definitely need to stay active on the waiver wire to improve your IF outside of Cabrera. Even Chavez at Util leaves a lot to be desired in a 10 teamer.

You've got some problems:

1. SS: Hill isn't worth owning in a 10-teamer, and if I'm wrong on that point (I doubt it, not to be cruel, but I'm confident on this), you can always scoop him up for his hot streak. Aurillia is tempting, but he's not that good. That might not be an improvement. Troy Tulowitzki from Colorado might be an option. Please post again here or at http://www.fantasyloungeforums.com with more SS options from the wire. Betermit?

2. Saves: I don't see strong closers. MacDougal's second in line, Zumaya's third in line, and Lidge is a mess. Keep Putz and Zumaya, but be ready to trade Lidge and Mac soon when new closers are named.

3. Other than Hill, your hitter weakness is Chavez/Sexson at UTIL. When Nomar gets hurt, you'll have to play both. I'd try to trade Chavez with one of Crisp or Lidge for a good OF. Then, you've room for the best FAs.

Hope this helps. Please check out mine, too:http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=260441
