Ok this is a 10 team H2H, 9x7 scoring. With only 19 roster spots!
Hitting Catagories R, H, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, W, SO, SB
Pitching Catagories W, L, K, BB, SV, ERA, WHIP

c- Russel Martin
1b- David Ortiz
2b- Chone Figgins
ss- Michael Young
3b- Garret Atkins
OF- Matt Holliday, Carlos Lee, Juan Pierre
Util- Matt Kemp
BN- Jacoby Ellsbury

SP Felix Hernandez, Francisco Liriano
RP Joe Nathan, BJ Ryan
P Jered Weaver
BN Rich Harden, Yovanni Gallardo, Eric Gagne, Bobby Jenks

I tried drafting based on the scoring catagories, but Im not sure how I did? I want another hitter, but Im not sure who to drop? What do you guys think?

I really like your team. Only thing that I may change is that you seem to have an overload with SB, might want a little more power or average, I'd try to trade Pierre or Figgins for maybe a 25ish HR guy who hits for average too. Your pitching looks good, for the open pitching slot that you have Weaver in, I may throw a closer in there instead, probably Jenks. But overall, even if you keep it as is, I think you'll be fine. Hope this helps!

Not sure you need another bat... its an impressive lineup as is. Kemp should do nicely this year, and ellisbury, too. You could trade him to a boston fan for a high markup :-]

your pitching is heavy on the risk, but i like that. my bias aside, i think you should work to secure a more seasoned starter. what you have now are high-upside, medium-to-high risk starters, all of whom are young. there are going to be bumps in the road. your closers are nice though (excluding gagne). you could build up a lead in saves and then trade one of the top two for a starter or the bat you're longing for.

good luck to you.

lend a hand?

i agree with this statement. there is a risk that liriano won't be as good as before and we all know the risks associated with rich harden. i'd suggest a solid pitcher to anchor your staff.
