I'm a Fantasy Football veteran, but this year is my first ever Fantasy Baseball season and team. So, how did I do on my draft? Where should I upgrade if possible? We play in a 14 team league that plays head-to-head format. It's a Yahoo league with the standard rules they have (whatever they are?)
Here's my team:

Catcher: J. Kendall (Pit)
1st Base: J. Giambi (NYY)
2nd Base: M. Giles (Atl)
3rd Base: H. Blalock (Tex)
Shortstop: A-Rod (NYY)
Outfield: B. Giles (SD)
Outfield: R. Baldelli (TB)
Outfield: C. Crawford (TB)
Outfield: M. Bradley (CLE)
Utility: C. Floyd (TB)
Bench: M. Teixeira (TEX)
Bench: A. Dunn (Cin)
Bench: R. Ibanez (Sea)
Bench: R. Alomar (Ari)
Bench: M. Byrd (PHI)
Bench: J. Phillips (NYM)

PITCHERS
Starter: C. Schilling (Bos)
Starter: J. Vazquez (NYY)
Reliever: O. Dotel (Hou)
Reliever: A. Rhodes (Oak)
Pitcher: J. Beckett (FLA - SP)
Pitcher: J. Valverde (ARI - RP)
Pitcher: J. Contreras (NYY - SP,RP)
Bench: F. Rodriquez (ANA - RP)

Comments? Any suggestions on bench players that I need for depth? Should I pick up another SS because of A-rod playing 3rd this year?

I really like your team. For my bench, I usually like a backup infielder, but my league has daily changes, not the H2H format. Rodriguez and Blalock will play virtually every day anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it.

As long as your league allows A-Rod to be played in the SS position (as I think Yahoo will), you don't need to get another SS. There's probably not another SS on the waiver wire that will be better than playing Blalock at 3B.

I think my depth is ok at OF, so would you drop someone like Marlon Byrd if Alex Gonzalez (SS FLA) is available to help my infield depth?
