OK, Yahoo Money league, 10 teams, Head to Head, with Standrad scoring, Runs, RBI, Doubles, HR, etc.. and Wins, Saves, K's, etc..
Never played before and went into draft blind and man these guys were drafting players I never heard of. So now I think I am SOL! Maybe my players are injurred or too old for a starting spot. Can you see what my weak postions are? Or what I should get rid of right now? DO I ahve an trade power?
Any advice would really help!

You're team definitely needs some help. We'll start with your offense: You don't have any big power threats on your team. You're relying to heavily on David Wright having a bounce back year, and Jason Bay hitting 110 RBI again (I am a Met fan, so I'll be rooting for this). As much of a fan of David Wright I am, I would look to trade him for a big power guy (40 HR, 120 RBI). You have Jose Lopez on your bench, who should gain eligibility for 3rd Base no more than a week into the season. He's For your pitching: It's not terrible, but for a 10 team league, you're going to have to keep an eye on the waiver wire, and try to get lucky on sleeper. Good luck with the season.
And as for your league stat categories, I am curious as to what the exactly are. I don't know what your commissioner told you but standard scoring (5x5) usually means HR, AVG, RBI, R, SB and W, WHIP, ERA, K, Saves. I would look into that, that has a bigger impact on how you should roster your team than you might thing.
