OK, I have never had my team rated. I am in a 10 team H2H Yahoo League with the following categories for statistics:

I am currently in 3rd place and only 2 games out of first. I have been in first but never for two weeks in a row and never by mor than 2 games.

Here is my team, please tell me what I can do to succeed.

C- Jason Varitek
1B- Derek Lee
2B- Alfonso Soriano
3B- Aramis Ramirez
SS- Edgar Renteria and Carlos Guillen
RF- Miguel Cabrerra
CF- Jim Edmonds
LF- Carlos Lee
Util- Hideki Matsui
DL- Javy Lopez and Chipper Jones

SP- Jake Peavy, Jon Garland, Carl Pavano, Wade Miller, Odalis Perez, Oliver Perez, Carlos Silva, Mark Redman

RP- B.J. Ryan, Joe Nathan, Ryan Dempster, Juan Rincon, Jesse Crain

Any help will be greatly appreciated and if you leave me a link I will respond to your to the best of my ability.

I really like your team. The only thing you might want to do is upgrade at pitching. Pavano and Miller could be replaced and probably help you.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

great offense, mediocre starting staff. i think you can use more pitching, and you'll have the trading chips to get more pitching once chipper and javy return. until then, i can't think of any trades really.

i like the manny for cabrera trade.

i like the 2nd trade too.

i like the 3rd trade as well.

i like the 4th trade.

i also like the 5th trade.

individually i like all your trades, but overall i think it made your team hitting heavy and light on starting pitching. it's too bad you had to give up beckett in that 4th trade, but that was a trade you had to do based on pure value, so i understand.

anyway, my only advice is that once your injured players return, trade some hitters for an elite starter.

Yeah - think your team is pretty well balanced. As per the above responses I think Starting pitching is probably where you could improve. How about :

a)Cashing in on C Lee. I doubt he is going to keep this up - could be proved wrong though.

b)Wating for Guillen to come back and trade a SS for an SP perhaps with garland to seriously upgrade.

I would combine Edmonds and Redman for a better SP. SP is where you need your help. Redman is a sell high guy right now and Edmonds seems to continue producing despite his age and injuries.
