10 Team 5x5 Roto (redraft) Weekly Lineup changes, with no bench. Cash league. Didn't grab a pitcher until round 10. Be harsh, and all advice is appreciated. leave a link.

Possibly, but having a balanced team is the KEY to winning 1st place, not just hitting heavy

You metioned my cheaply-acquired pitching staff on my thread, and I have to say the same for yours. Doesn't look too bad. With only 10 teams, you're not likely to *win* any pitching categories, but with some luck you'll stay out of the basement. And if Shields ends up closing (unlikely), you'll do great in saves Obviously if Papelbon or Devine is still available they might be good pickups, but it's tough to find a place for them with no bench. Millwood and Escobar are solid sleepers, IMHO.

I like your combination of guaranteed production and upside on offense. If Kendall struggles early, though, you might consider benching him and picking up a minor league catcher who won't produce, but won't hurt your average. It all depends on how bad he is, how good your BA is, and who else is available on waivers.
