ok i have no idea what i'm doing
but we just finished doing an auto draft
12 team rotisserie

this is what my team looks like

C-Jorge Posada
1B-Derek Lee
2B-Josh Barfield
3B-Chipper Jones
SS-Orlando Cabrerra
OF-Carl Crawford
OF-Bobby Abreau
OF-Vladamir Guerrero
UT-Frank Thomas
BN-Rich Aurillia
BN-Ty Wiggington
BN-Kevin Youkilas

*the three guys on my bench have multiple positioon eligibility

SP-Ben Sheets
SP-Eric Bedard
RP-Mariano Rivera
RP-Francisco Cordero
P-David Bush
P-Scott Olsen
P-Chris Young
BN-Solomon Torres

ok so how does my team look?
is it balanced?
do my pitchers need work? should i just give up on rp's?

i guess some notables on the ww are teehan, giles, matthew's jr, huff, e. encarnacion, vazquez, a. sanchez, penny, buehrle, k. rogers, markakis, and colon

i really need help

IMO aslong as your starting pitchers stay healthy they should be good.
if Cordero can pitch the way he did in the NL last year he should be a good closer.
i think ive read that Chipper Jones has foot problems is it? he might miss some time so its good to have someone else to play 3B.

And that previous poster is correct: you need an alternative at 3b.

I like your position eligibility on your bench, but two of those three should go: Aurillia and Youklis. They aren't good enough. It's better to take a better player with only one position than a worse guy who won't do well at different places. Position eligibility is over-rated.

But Teehan and Markakis are off the wire. Pick them up, and then Teehan's your backup 3B.

Don't punt saves. In roto, every point counts, and you can always watch the wire closely for newly named closers. You can win when you finish last in a category.

Hope this helps. Here's mine. http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=260441

I agree with almost everything except I will ditch all three bench players and add Encarcion as well. Wiggy is one of thoose guys that gets hot for a month and then makes you pay for it the rest of the time.

Wigginton is eligible at 3B, as well as 2B and 1B. He is acapable back up to Chipper. Though Teahen has a lot of upside. Youkliis may be better than Markakis, quite frankly - similar power, slightly lower BA, many more runs. Agree Aurelia should be junked ... though batting behind Binds ... he may drive in a lot of runs is healthy.

I think the team is pretty balanced, but you shoudl always look to tweak to improve.

oh this is great feedback!

well after the autodraft i had matthews jr, teehan, and giles on my bench

so youk and wigg keep and drop aurillia for teehan again?
maybe i should just try to trade away chipper

the whole league is pretty inexperienced, haha

so solomon torres is a viable closer?

Make the switch to Teehan, who himself will soon be OF eligible.

And Torres is a solid choice.

is position eligibility a common thing in yahoo baseball?
because i'm in a hockey league and it's pretty rare


will aurillia be batting after bonds?
teehan eh...i know nothing about him
but i do know he plays for the royals, and they're horrible right?

Teehan is a good candidate for a 20 homer, .280 average, 90ish RBI year at RF/3B. That's better than I'm expecting for Youklis and Aurillia.
