This is a 10 Team 5X5, plus holds, Head-to Head league. I didn't draft a 2B because they went very early. I went for speed and I'm lacking in power, but I'm actually fairly pleased. Let me know what you think.

C- M. LeCroy
1B- Todd Helton
2B-J. Reyes when eligible
SS- Á. Berroa
3B- S. Rolen
OF- A. Huff
OF- C. Crawford
OF- J. Damon
Util- P. Burrell

SP- M. Prior
SP- J. Vázquez
RP- J. Smoltz
RP- Danny Kolb
P- R. Oswalt
P- M. Morris
P- G. Maddux

Bench: S. Podsednik, T. Nixon, G. Jenkins, B. Looper, C. Wilson

Thanks for taking a look.

I dunno, since holds is a whole separate category, maybe you should have at least one middle reliever on the roster?

Three OF speedsters also seems excessive. You'd definitely need to trade. I wouldn't drop any of the OF base stealers.

Not having Reyes will affect you for two games, right? Could you trade an OF for another 2B?

Roberto Alomar, Ray Durham, Eric Young, D. Jiminez. All on waiver wire. Who do you think would be the best to pick up? Also, would you trade Matt Morris for Vernon Wells?

I'd pick up Durham off wiavers until Reyes is eligible. I'd also think about putting Jenkins in the starting line up rather than Damon. You have alot of speed and not much power. And hell yeah I'd trade Morris for Wells.

I agree with Dice, drop Looper and get a middle RP because you have no holds at this point. Go for Durham or even Alomar, see who starts off hotter. I would definitely pull the trigger on that Morris/V Wells trade, trades that address your weaknesses are always good.

I'm trying to trade Podsednik, Nixon and Looper for Mag. Ordonez and Brendan Donnely. The guy needs closers and I have three. Do you think this is an acceptable trade?

Its my first time to do it but they score by category, 5X5 plus holds, however you play against another team.

It's categories. If you beat your opponent 10-0 in one week your record will be 10-0.
