10 team, H2H free league on CBS - it's just starting now so I don't have a record yet

C - Nick Hundley
1B - Gaby Sanchez
2B - Robinson Cano
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Nelson Cruz
OF - Matt Kemp
OF - Martin Prado
U - Troy Tulowitzki

Bench - Joe Mauer, Carols Lee, Chase Utley, Jay Bruce

SP - Clay Bucholtz, Brett Anderson, Jamie Garcia, Matt Garza, Jair Jurrlens
RP - Jonathan Papelbon, Carlos Marmol

Bench - Zack Grienke


It seems to me like I have a lot of good injured players and will be much better off after they get back. I don't know much abotu fantasy baseball, so any pointers about who I could add and who I should drop or what to be on the lookout for on a week to week basis would be very helpful.

EDIT: Here's my scoring system:
Batting Categories
1B – Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS - Caught Stealing -1 point
HP - Hit by Pitch 1 point
HR - Home Runs 4 points
KO - Strikeouts (Batter) -0.5 points
R – Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 2 points

Pitching Categories
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
ER - Earned Runs -1 point
HA - Hits Allowed -1 point
HB - Hit Batsmen -1 point
INN – Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) .5 points
L – Losses -5 points
QS - Quality Starts 3 points
S – Saves 7 points
W – Wins 7 points

Advice: Improve your pitching. Hitting can't carry you the whole way.

Okay everyone stresses Relievers because they get Saves. Relievers aren't going to pitch every night. Even the best closers Mariano, street, Wilson are STILL in the end, score as much as a top tier starter. Which would you rather have? A Reliever scoring 4-8 points every 2 or 3 days or a decent SP/RP like Kyle McClellan or Brian Duensing etc that get 10-40 points every 4-5 days ? I would stress improving your Starting pitching and if you have to give up a decent bench player so be it.

So which of my starters needs improving most? my thought would be gallardo. seems like i could give up utley or lee and gallardo for a top tier starter - does that seem right?

anybody have any ideas for good trades i should consider? the guy in my league with josh johnson is looking for OF and/or 1B

Since you have Cano, I'd try dealing Utley for an upgrade at SP or Buchholz since he's "kind of" your ace. Other than that, WATCH the free agents.
