This is from a 12 team public Yahoo league. I think that it's a good argument about why you shouldn't play in those public leagues. It's fish-barrel easy.

C R. Hernandez
1B P. Konerko
2B M. Loretta
3B A. Ramirez
SS A. Rodriguez
OF M. Ordonez
OF B. Giles
OF A. Kearns
Util E. Renteria
BN R. Baldelli

SP J. Vazquez

If I were to grade each position you would get:

Hernandez- c+
Konerko- c-
Loretta- c-
Aramis- B-
AROD- A+
Mags- A
Giles- B
Kearns- inc
Edgar- A-
Baldelli- B-
Burrell- D-
Durazo- D

Vazquez- A
Morris- B-
Gagne- A+
Benitez- B
Beckett- A
Wells- C
CC- C+
Soriano- MR may be hurt INC, if healthy B+
Weaver- C+

Good team could use another top SP and another RP, !B, 2B very weak and who knows about Kearns.

I love the fact that you got A-Rod, Maggs, Rentaria and Giles, but after them, I find your hitters ranging from pedestrian to questionable to wretched. I like your two aces and your stud closer, but again after those guys, you have a lot of question marks.....

Did you pre-rank?

your top 4 or 5 hitters are excellent, but many of your other position players are question marks. i think your pitching is pretty solid. overall not bad.

I like your SP and Gagne. As far as your offence, I think
C, 3B, SS are more than solid. The right side of your IF needs help! Mags is a no brainer, I think Kearns and Burrell will a have good year. You have alot of work to do in trades and waivers.

Good luck

So is the consensus to improve my 1b/2b? Or is there something I'm missing?

theres no need to have two stud ss when one can easily be traded for a 1b/2b so yeah work on that if everyone in your of plays up to their potential u might have a surplus their im sure burrell will bounce back so i would trade giles for a top 1b and renteria for sori-boone and you should have a much better team and ur second closer is quite weak but anyway just work on the right side of the infield and u should win ur public league and yes they are fish barrel easy but watch for FA pickups they can be HUGE esp during sept callups

If you could improve either your 1B or 2B you'd be looking a lot better. However, I think Konerko could bounce back from an awful year with stats more in line with his career norms.......

I really don't mind your staff (except for Weaver - I think that he is a wasted spot)

You need some hitting depth. Except for ss, your infield needs to be overhauled.

Is it points or roto? If it is roto you will need some sb and svs.
