I found K. Green from SD and M Cuddyer from Min on the WW, should I take a chance on either. I am leaning more towards Cuddyer, if so who should I drop.

First, I would need a little more info, like how many guys are in your league and if this is a keeper league (I'll guess 16).

For a 14th pick, you didn't do too bad, especially since Vlad somehow slipped all the way down (lots of A's fans?) Thome, Glaus and your OF are pretty good. Burnitz is a sleeper since he plays in Colorado (35 homeruns?) Your offense isn't too bad.
Your starting pitching is solid with Vazquez and Backett. Washburn and Harden can also impress this year. Your relief pitching needs help because R.Wagner will get limited save opportunites unless Graves gets hurt,Valvarde is a risk and isn't even the closerb(or as I think) and who knows if MacDougal will be a good closer again.

There are a lot of good middle relievers in there, but if Nen won't play, Herges will be their closer and will get saves.

Your team isn't as bad as you think. Actually for a 16-team league it isn't too bad.

Your team is not bad. Your weakest area is relief pitching. I'd pick up Cuddyer for Helms.

its a 15 team none keeper league standard 5x5 roto. I just can't stand fricking auto drafts. I went back and looked at the draft results and missed some bargins in the later rounds. I too am glad I got Vlad at 14, but Yahoo had him rated like 36.
