14 team roto league standard points system, here's how my line-up turned out.

Lopez, Javy C BAL
Teixeira, Mark 1B TEX
Giles, Marcus 2B ATL
Mora, Melvin 3B BAL
Furcal, Rafael SS LA
Bonds, Barry LF SF :~(
Gibbons, Jay RF BAL !+)
Hunter, Torii CF MIN :-t
Hafner, Travis DH CLE
Sanders, Reggie DH KC

Reserve Batters
Willingham, Josh C FLA
Cameron, Mike CF SD
Barfield, Josh 2B SD
Monroe, Craig RF DET

Starting Pitchers
Blanton, Joe SP OAK A
Buehrle, Mark SP CHW
Davis, Doug SP MIL
Martinez, Pedro SP NYM
Radke, Brad SP MIN A
Lidge, Brad RP HOU
Wagner, Billy RP NYM

Reserve Pitchers
Bush, Dave SP MIL
Ramirez, Horacio SP
Orvella, Chad RP TB

i know I am extremely weak in the Outfield, but with a 14 team league the waiver is very thin. The best name I can find is gathright. And even now I don't know who to drop to pick him up, plus he's not guaranteed to start. If I make a trade, who do I get rid of without making myself weak in another position? Ohh fantasy baseball, why do you do this to me.

With the innings limit in roto, you may want to drop/trade SP for outfield help. That seems to be one area that managers forget to factor in when playing during the season. There was a guy in a league last year who used up all his innings right after the all-star break. He looked like he was leading in W's and K's but was easily passed and finished middle of the pack.
Hopefully someone beside Gathright is available.

Good luck

I think for a 14 team league, you have enough power. Between Tex, Bonds, Mora, and Hafner, you have like 145 hr/420rbi and probably 400 runs. You have enough speed and 35 sb on your bench in Cameron and Barfield (who is doing well this Spring). If you want to upgrade, your best trading chip is Javy Lopez. Not too many people are savy on Willingham, but I think he'll put up similar power numbers.

Initially, I thought trade Doug Davis for a Burrell or Huff, but since this is roto, you'll need Davis' strikeouts especially since your only other strikeout artist is Pedro and your closers. If you can get a real OF stud for Lidge or Wagner and Devine is available on the WW (he'll be Atlanta's closer very soon), do that. I dunno, what's a good deal for your closers though. Maybe Dunn? Haven't really done much trading in closers, so get another opinion on that...

Anyway, if you have a sec:
