JUST finished drafting the first of three teams this season and I'd love some feedback. 12-team 5x5 Yahoo roto.

C Kendall
1B Helton
2B Kent
3B Chavez
SS Jeter
OF Ordonez
OF Berkman
OF Crawford
Util Dunn

Bench
Vidro
Juan Gonzalez
M Cabrera

SP Schilling
SP Brown
RP Julio
RP Baez
P Morris
P Contreras
P Nathan

Bench
Graves
MacDougal

Thinking about trading Vidro and a scrub closer for a top closer, and/or maybe even going LIMA. Thoughts?

Very nice draft. I like your idea of trading Vidro to try to improve on a closer.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

It's a very solid team. What I would do - try to trade Vidro for a top closer. It won't happen, but you've got to try. Wait a couple of weeks into the season and then try again - to whichever guy has Mark Loretta or some other trash filling his 2b spot.

I'd put any of your bench in over Dunn.

Finally, here's a list of your starters that haven't missed significant time in the last 2 years:







That could be a problem, unless you're lucky. Maybe you should try to trade Vidro for a starter, instead. Although you don't have a top notch closer, you do have 5 closers. At least 4 should keep their jobs. Your era/whip won't be great, but you'll be fine in saves.
