Ok, so I am in a 12 team h2h points ESPN league and I'm 0-2. Do you see any major holes in my roster or just some bad starts by players I should just ride out?
C Mike Napoli, Tex C, 1B 1B Miguel Cabrera, Det 1B 2B Neil Walker, Pit 2B 3B Kevin Youkilis, Bos 3B SS Jose Reyes, Mia SS 2B/SS Mike Aviles, Bos 2B, 3B, SS 1B/3B Mark Trumbo, LAA 1B OF Carlos Gonzalez, Col OF OF Jay Bruce, Cin OF OF Howard Kendrick, LAA 2B, OF OF Delmon Young, Det OF UTIL Buster Posey, SF C UTIL Alejandro De Aza, CWS OF Bench Peter Bourjos, LAA OF Bench Ike Davis, NYM 1B
SP Ian Kennedy, Ari SP SP Madison Bumgarner, SF SP SP Brandon Beachy, Atl SP SP Anibal Sanchez, Mia SP SP Brandon McCarthy, Oak SP SP Bud Norris, Hou SP DTD SP Carlos Zambrano, Mia SP RP Jose Valverde, Det RP RP Frank Francisco, NYM RP Bench Felix Doubront, Bos RP, SP
I think your roster is pretty good. I can see why Bud Norris kills you but at the same time helps you out (same with annibal sanchez and zambrano). I would definatley look into trying to upgrade your pitching, you could also probably use another closer as well. You might want to see what you can get for Posey or Napoli..you could get a decent haul for them since catcher is so thin.
Out of Norris/Sanchez/Zambrano probably best to only have 1 maybe two of them on your roster.
Stay with McCarthy, you could also look into trading Youk, Walker probably won't have much value anyway.
Keep an eye out for the young guys who might be comign up soon like Trout/Harper/Bauer(Arizona SP)
C: Posey 1B: Cabrera 2B: Espinosa 3B: Headley SS: Castro OF: Bourn OF: A. Jackson OF: Trout UTIL: I. Davis BN: B. Revere DL: Plouffe
SP: King Felix, Fiers, Feldman, Minor, Shields, Dickey RP: Jansen, F. Francisco, Clippard, Cishek, Holland

I would try to buy low on upton, bautista, or votto since they are cold.
keep napoli, cabrera, reyes, cargo, and bruce for sure.
Thanks guys! I have been having plenty of thoughts about dropping Zambrano, but he hasnt pitched terrible yet. And Norris im sort of afraid that someone else will snag him up as soon as I let him go. Do either of them really have much trade value or would he just be a throw in on a deal?
I think I will drop Dubront for Milone tonight (even though Dubront had a nice start and a W tonight) and Youk hit a Grand Slam tonight as well so im really hoping he will go on a tear now.
My league is pretty competitive so the top 10 FA hitters right now are:
Travis Hafner, Cle DH Mark Ellis, LAD 2 Todd Helton, Col 1B Juan Pierre, Phi OF Josh Reddick, Oak OF Carlos Gomez, Mil OF Gerardo Parra, Ari OF Vernon Wells, LAA OF Raul Ibanez, NYY OF Jamey Carroll, Min 2B, SS
