So, I used to follow baseball pretty closely but stopped paying attention around 2008 (I'm an Orioles fan, it's easy to become disenchanted with the sport...). Anyway, this year I'm in a fantasy league with some friends for money and am getting back into baseball. I kinda had no idea what I was doing during the draft, but I hope I fared well enough to be competitive in the league. What's everyone's thoughts on my team? Disaster? Great? Any drastic changes that should be made?

P Cliff Lee P CC Sabathia P Josh Beckett P Jeremy Hellickson P Justin Masterson RP Javy Guerra RP Brandon League RP Sean Marshall
BN Zack Cozart BN Brandon Belt BN Jesus Montero DL Ryan Howard
Without even looking at your team, I can tell you that a 10 team league that scores R, HR, TB, RBI, K, SB, CS, AVG, OBP, E -- HR, K, QS, CG, W, L, SV, BS, ERA, WHIP is basically a coin flip no matter how you draft. Some of those are terrible categories especially for a H2H league. CG? You really want an entire scoring week decided by Bizzaro Monday's Barry Zito gem?
Anyway, aside from that your team looks fine. Only note I have is that with Napoli, you're going to want to try to flip Jesus Montero once he gets C eligibility. No point in carrying 2 catchers unless you start 2 and it doesn't look like you do. I might also try to trade Youk for whatever you can get. I see a fairly disastrous season for him. I'd accept 60 cents on the dollar at this point.
