Not too shabby.
How many teams are in your league and what is your scoring format. This can help me better to gauge how good your team is.

I came back and edited at the top, it's a 10 team, 5X5. I know I'm weak at RP. Should I look to trade and if so where?

Pretty good. You have a nice bench. Trade an outfielder like Rowand or something for a closer; I don't see you having any problem filling in for him (restraining myself here). You also have a lot of depth at SP. I'd trade one like Pavano for a better MI than Berroa.

Yeah, after getting Furcal in the 6th and Kent in the 10th, I didn't even think about another MI 'til 18 when I picked up Berroa. So you think Rowand would garner a pretty good RP?

That sounds good, I would also like to hang onto Rowand. I'm going heavy on Rowand in all my leagues this year. He may be the make or break player for me this year. Unless someone wants him bad enough. Heck, they're all for sale.

Nice job on the draft there. I too would hold onto Rowand. You also have an excellent Bench. Good Job.

the team looks good... but with just wickman, I think you need either a TOP closer, or two more solid ones. If this is not possible, I would consider forgetting saves and trading wickman and Berroa for as good a MI as possible.

hey cody - welcome to the cafe ;-D

I just want to say you might be better off dealing Rowand. He is the sleeper of the month cadidate - therefore he isnt really a sleeper. His value is incredibly high - as you attested to buy saying you are targeting him heavily in all your leagues - guess what - you arent alone. ESPN, CBS, Yahoo, almost all of the big name ranking services are drooling over Rowand which basically means his pricetag is way too high. Those places have a history of driving up the price on this type of player and hurting the people who listen to their advice fantasy chances. If you want a sleeper, grab a sleeper in the last quarter of the draft - dont draft them as if they have already made it which is what is happening with Rowand in many drafts currently.

He is a marginal OF who was on fire for a short period. He never hit that well consistantly at any level prior to last yr. The CHIWS OF is extremely deep in talent - if he falters there are elite prospects ready to step in. Lots and lots of question marks surrounding him, yet his pricetag is huge - if you can get a top 10 closer for him right now, do it - quickly.

OBTW - nice team, you need a few closers.
