Something just doesn't feel right about my team. WHIR

H2H 7x6 league

Offensive starting reqs are normal with general OF (3), 1 Utility,
Scoring categories are:
H, HR, R, SB, AVG, TB, RBI

BAA, K, L, ER, W, SV (must start 3 Ps with SP eligibility and 3 RPs with 1P as a flex-type)

I was drafting this team on ESPN autodraft as I was flying during the draft. I customized my draftsheet, pushing all of the overvalued SP back a bit. May have gotten shafted on Pitching as a consequence, though there are options available on the WW. Also a little screwed due to injuries to Mauer and Santana. Not sure who to pick up.

Without further ado:
C: Mauer
1B: Howard
2B: Kinsler, Jose Lopez
3B: A. Gordon
SS: Hanley
OF: Quentin, B.J. Upton, Hart, Bruce, Ibanez
UT: Adrian Gonzalez (I can always sub one of the other OFs, but right now, he's my everyday UT)
Also drafted Pablo Sandoval, who I love from a talent standpoint. I was just hoping he'd be catcher or 3B eligible, but ESPN has him as 1B only as of now. Would be nice to have him available, should Gordon slump...

SP:Santana, J. Vazquez, Lilly, Matt Garza (who will probably be jettisoned soon after reading about this dead-arm nonsense.
RP: Papelbon, M. Gonzalez, Morrow

Jeez, after typing my pitching staff out, I see how bad it looks. Here are the big names on the WW:
C: R. Hernandez, Shoppach ( as soon as more players are DL eligible, I'll have to pick up a C, I think. Though if Mauer is only missing a week or two, maybe I'll use that spot on someone else and hope my lineup can manage.
OF: Ankiel (not sure who I'd drop for him though).

SP: Wang, Randy Johnson, Carmona, Cueto, C. Young, Volstad, Buehrle, Ollie Perez, et al.
RP: Hanrahan (also SP eligible for now), Sherrill, Corpas, C. Ray, Arredondo, Manny Parra (SP/RP)

Any thoughts welcome.

Is this a 12-team or a 10 team? If 12, I think you have a great starting team. If 10, it's good but could use some tweaking.
At first glance, starting pitching looks to be your biggest weakness, but your league actually values RP more than SP. For a SP, I think Wang will be extremely valuable, especially for W/BAA/L/ER categories.
You should go to baseballmonster com, plug in your league settings and see how guys stack up for your league. I'd almost consider punting W's.
