Head to head, 14 teams.
Batting Stats: H/AB - R - HR - RBI - SB - AVG%
Pitching Stats: IP - W - SV - K - ERA - WHIP

C - Bengi Molina
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Jose Lopez
3B - Mark Reynolds
SS - Miguel Tejada
OF - Manny Ramirez
OF - Vernon Wells
OF - Milton Bradley
UTL - Big Pappi
Bench - Shin-Soo Choo, Ramon Hernandez

SP - Josh Beckett
SP - Felix Hernandez
RP - Bobby Jenks
RP - David Franklin
P - Jair Jurgens
P - Andy Petitie
Bench - Daisuke Matsuzaka, J.J. Putz
DL - Hiroki Kuroda

I think I did ok. But I drafted Wagner thinking he was the closer again (just didn't know the Mets situation well enough) so that put a bit of a hole in my relief pitching as I have since dropped him.

Hopefully, "H/AB" and "Avg%" aren't both categories.

You're punting steals, but I'm not sure there's anything you can do about it now. Hernandez is expendable, and I'd rather use the spot for a young player with upside. Starting pitching is good, maybe not strong in whip, but that's not as bad in h2h, and there are plenty of strikeouts there. I'm not a big fan of Pettitte, but that's a judgement call. You need to grab some closers when they come available, though. St Louis looks like a committee, don't count on Franklin for much. Putz is okay for ratios help, but I'd rather have a closer (I know there probably isn't one available now, I'm just talking about later, when the closer churn starts). Overall, an okay team, but punting steals means you start every week behind.

what are your thoughts on Bradley this year? I am leaning towards dropping him for some speed...

I think Bradley is solid, although he probably won't give you a full slate of abs. I'd drop Hernandez before Bradley if you want to make a speed pickup.
