Just another roto newbie...

...lookin for help.

A Yahoo league, 12 teams, standard 5x5.

Here's my team:

Barrett, C, MON
D Lee, 1B, FLA
Soriano, 2B, NYY
Chavez, 3B, OAK
A Boone, SS, CIN
Ramirez, OF, BOS
Encarnacion, OF, FLA
Nixon, OF, BOS
Burks, Util, CLE

Salmon, OF, ANA - bench
Crede, 3B, CWS - bench

Mulder, SP, OAK
Hudson, SP, OAK
Lopez, RP, BAL
Julio, RP, BAL
Prior, P, ChC
Miller, P, HOU
Reed, P, MIN

El Duque, SP, MON - bench
Rhodes, RP, SEA - bench
Hoffman, RP, SD - bench

I would think I really need to beef up my RP corps, though my SPs are excellent, as a group.

My OF could use some work also.

Do I deal from my strength (SP) for this, or do I wait things out?

You're right, your SP are great for a 12 team league. You mentioned ou're weak at RP but I also think you need to strengthen up your third OF (nixon/Salmon don't impress me). Kind of dangerous with 2 Orioles pitchers but you got the best 2. I lilke Rhodes though. I would maybe shop ElDuque/Hudson for a better RP although it looks like you're going after wins/ks rather than saves. If this is the case do nothing.

I would try to deal for a third OF also, look for someone that needs help at SP and you could land a respectable OF.

Moves I made...

I dropped Trot Nixon and picked up Austin Kearns to upgrade my OF.

I dropped Trevor Hoffman and picked up Brandon Villafuerte to upgrade my RP (due to the word being that Hoffman will be out until at least after the All-Star break).

I dropped Michael Barrett and picked up Toby Hall to upgrade my C.

Again, being a Roto-newbie, I'm not sure if these moves will be sufficient to make my team solid for this type of league.

With the 1250 inning limit, how do you approach apportioning your pitchers????
