Those CBS H2H leagues with weekly lineups are funny things. BA, ERA, WHIP, toss it all out the window because none of it matters. Its all about wins, saves, K's and big power. Two-start pitchers are almost vital to have any shot of seriously competing in these leagues. And the turds of your rotation (Joe Saunders & Mark Buehrle) should be dropped to rotate those two starters. But remember... never bench studs for two start crap. Peavy and Santana stay active all the time. Even a quality loss from a pitcher can net you 13 points or so in these leagues. Fill the gaps with closers, you need at least one more so search the FA's. Your offense should be adequate at 2 points per stolen base Reyes and Phillips are decent middle infielders for this league especially with Phillips added power. You have some decent strikeout pitchers and guys who can eat innings all of that will benifit you greatly in these leagues. I have a lot of experience with these because they are simply a lot of fun and I've been doing them for years (for serious leagues I'm a 5x5 roto type guy though). I like Justin Uptin as a huge roto sleeper but he won't do much for you here, take a chance on Giambi or Pronk if either went undrafted.

EDIT: I forgot CBS changed their format this season allowing only 2 RP's now. Forget what I said about finding another one. You have 2 decent ones and a third with good potential.

Looks very solid. Keep active with it and you should make some bank $$.

Studly offense. A few guys I'd stay away from (Martin, Morneau, Upton) but if you put that whole thing together it's a very impressive offense.

Good top of your rotation, although not a fan of Saunders, Buehrle, or Garza.

CBS must have changed their format bc here is the standard point system they use. Daily Lineups also.

Scoring for Batting Categories
1B - Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS - Caught Stealing -1 point
HBP - 1 point
HR - Home Runs 4 points
KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -0.5 points
R - Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 2 points


Scoring for Pitching Categories
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
BS - Blown Saves -2 points
ER - Earned Runs -2 points
HA - Hits Allowed -1 point
INN - Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L - Losses -5 points
S - Saves 5 points
SO - Shutouts 5 points
W - Wins 7 points

I'm a little worried about Soriano but I got him in the 4th round and couldn't pass him up. I feel good about Morneau and Martin. What makes you want to stay away from them. The reason I don't completely look at Buehrle and Saunders as trash is bc I can see them getting their share of wins, not allowing many runs, and not walking many batters, something CBS takes points away for.

Appreciate the feedback guys. If you need advice on yours just leave me the link.
