New York Highlanders
League: 2008 UKL1 Season 4
League Size: 16
Format: H2H, 7x7
Record: 82-77-9 (.515)
Place: 7th (28 GB)

This is a younger team than I'm used to dealing with (average of just less than 26). The goal is to make the playoffs for the first time (lost out on a playoff spot by 0.5 games last season). I'm still looking to add some power and speed to a young offense, and the pitching has held up very well (knock on wood). I'm in a tight one against a team that is in fourth place and three games ahead. If I push the right buttons, I think I can get the kids into the playoffs.

Upstate Catamounts
League: The Dynasty
League Size: 8
Format: H2H, 15x15
Record: 144-124-92 (.528)
Place: T-3rd (23 GB)

This is my newest squad. The team is trying to get back in shape after a terrible 14-7 loss last week. There is a good mixture of speed (Reyes, Victorino, and Beltran) and power (Dunn, Howard, and A-Gon), with a deep pitching staff and an excellent relief corps. What I want to see more is to see the hit for average (only .272 on the season) and bring in more Ks for the pitching staff (only 7.44 K/9). There should no reason why the team can't make a serious push in the playoffs (knock on wood).

Got beat up pretty bad last week because of Utley's slump- my worst week of the season by far.

Got off to a slow start in my ESPN league and now I'm a 3 game winning streak and down 9 points this week and hoping for a turn-around. Not doing that bad for my only stud is Beltran. My draft didnt go as planned :*)

First place ESPN league 10-man public

First place Yahoo! 8-man 9X9 keeper after today (thank you buy-low on big Tex last weekend....reaped all the benefits)

Last place 14-man keeper league- Joined it a couple weeks ago in last place, beat the second place team last week and looking OK for the second half

Moves have helped more than draft. Missed big this year in my keeper draft but have recovered with great trades. Goes to show the draft can always help, but not necessarily hurt you if you know how to play the game. ;-D

I'm sorry, as I just now checked this thread out, but is there a reason you have an apostrophe in "hos"?
