How Can I Improve This Team - WHIR

I find starters to be less valuable in H2H than in roto, as they can be unpredictable week to week. I'd shop Bedard, or even maybe Dice, in order to upgrade your OF/UTIL. Where are you sticking Figgins when he's back?

Dang - that's a pretty good team for the size of your league!

I agree with others - try to get one more great OF - I dished Pettitte off to a Yankee Homer for a high draft pick, so that strategy might work for you as previously mentioned? Course, with his age and back, that might not go off as well now...still, though, one more top OF and you are going to be GREAT!

as mentioned by others, that UTIL is your weak link, and with starting pitching that strong, i imagine someone in your league may be running a little dry in that category...packaging Markakis plus some Yanks to a homer, or Bedard and Markakis should get you a strong hitter, and still leave you plenty strong in pitching. Also not sure about Posada...haven't heard alot of projections on him...what other catchers are out there?

russell martin is available and i have really good projections for him, but posada had pretty good value since i took him i think last among all catchers in my league. varitek and pierzynski are also available, but i think posada is better than both
