Here's how I'd line-up your team:


C I-rod
1BKornerko
2b Soriano
3b Figgins
SS Garciaparra
OF Edmonds
Of Anderson
OF pujols
Ut Beltre????
Bn Dye
Bn Mauer
Bn Walker
D/L Stewart


SP Clement
SP Burnett
SP Halladay
SP Oswalt
SP Eaton
Rp Foulke
Rp Izzy
Rp Benitez
Rp Kolb
Bn Wells
Bn Leiter
Bn Cabrera
Bn Zambrano
Dl Hudson


So now you take the Benchies and trade/or FA for the best you can get. You really look pretty good . IMO take the bench players and get as much as you can for them. Especially offer 3 for 1 or 2 for 1 to get better players for volume, since your bench is almost FA.

By the way, I'd hang onto Leiter!! B-) B-)

Team looks solid. I play in a 14 team H2H league and no one has a team anywhere as ncie as that..how many really really bad teams are there in your league?

We have one in our NL like that..It's roto and from first to 11th place is 40 points and from 11th to 12th is another forty. Makes you wonder why some people even bother.
