Won both my leagues last year and hope to enjoy similar success in my sophomore season. Here's how my rosters shake out:

3B - A. Ramirez
SS - B. Crosby
INF - D. Lee (1B)
LF - G. Jenkins
CF - V. Wells
RF - M. Ordonez
OF - A. Huff (RF/1B)
Util - J. Gibbons (RF)
Bench - R. Aurilia (SS)
Bench - C. Wilson (C/1B/RF)
Bench - M. Bradley (CF)

SP - J. Vazquez

Second league, 10-team head-to-head non-keeper. Stat categories are R,H,HR,RBI,TB,SB,Ave,OPS for hitters; W,CG,S,Hlds,K,ERA,WHIP for pitchers.

C - M. LeCroy
1B - A. Pujols
2B - M. Young
3B - H. Blalock
SS - M. Tejada
INF - D. Lee (1B)
LF - C. Lee
CF - J. Pierre
RF - M. Ordonez
OF - A. Huff (RF/1B)
Util - J. Gibbons (RF)
Util - G. Jenkins (LF)
Bench - M. Bradley (CF)

SP - M. Mussina
SP - J. Santana
RP - O. Dotel
RP - F. Codero
P - J. Nathan
P - D. Riske
P - R. Soriano
P - Fran. Rodriguez
Bench - B. Webb
Bench - M. Morris
Bench - J. Contreras
Bench - W. Miller
Bench - D. Graves
DL - R. Nen

Overall I'm pretty happy with both teams. The first team is weak at shortstop, so I hedged my bets hoping either Crosby has a ROY season or Aurilia bounces back. If neither happens I'll look into trades. The only other area of concern there is SBs, as Soriano, D. Lee and Bradley are about the only guys that run, and Soriano and Lee will probably run a bit less this year.

The second team is solid all-around. I hope R. Soriano and K-Rod can get me enough holds, if not I'll drop Graves for another another set-up man or try to try a closer to create space for a set-up guy.

Anything else I'm missing or should be concerned about? Thanks. I look foward to checking out your teams as well.

Sounds like you've done a pretty good analysis of your teams. I really like your 'value picks' at closer (guys like Nathan, Cordero, Riske)...I presume you took those guys late. Very nice.

As for the Crosby/Aurilia seems that rookies tend to be kind of streaky. Aurilia will be solid - though not necessarily spectacular - for you in a good lineup. Ride Crosby when he's hot, and when he's not, you have a solid guy in Aurilia.

My two cents...
There's a madness to my methods...
