I play in a 12-team H2H Yahoo League 5X5 categories:

C Mike Piazza (Oak - C)
1B Mike Jacobs (Fla - 1B)
2B Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)
3B Scott Rolen (StL - 3B)
SS Miguel Tejada (Bal - SS)
OF J.D. Drew (Bos - OF)
OF Carlos Beltrán (NYM - OF)
OF Barry Bonds (SF - OF)
Util Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
BN Rocco Baldelli (TB - OF)
BN Jeff Kent (LAD - 1B,2B)
BN Eric Chávez (Oak - 3B)
BN Conor Jackson (Ari - 1B)

SP Ben Sheets (Mil - SP)
SP Matt Cain (SF - SP)
SP Ted Lilly (ChC - SP)
SP Scott Olsen (Fla - SP)
SP José Contreras (CWS - SP)
RP B.J. Ryan (Tor - RP)
RP José Valverde (Ari - RP)
RP Salomón Torres (Pit - RP)
DL Randy Johnson (Ari - SP) DL

I have a pending trasaction to get Boof Bonser (Min - SP) and cut Conor Jackson. Most seem to think Conor is a better 1B than Mike Jacobs, but Jacobs is batting cleanup and seems to be playing pretty well. Am I making a mistake, or do you agree with my move?
Overall, how does my team look??

Overall, I think this team is decent. You need to be starting Baldelli in front of Drew, though. As far as your first base situation is concerned, I think Jackson is the better player, but both he and Jacobs are sub-par at a position as deep as 1st base. Show me some decent WW players if there are any.

Nice pick on Piazza. I like him to do well this year since he's gonna be DHing and not wearing himself out playing the field.

Your pitching staff is pretty nice as well, though I can't stand Contreras. Bonser might be a nice addition, but could also end up blowing up in your face. Watch him closely.

Help me out if you please: ... 26#2165826

Thanks for the advice.
My waiver wire is bare for 1st baseman.
I'm embarraseed to admit, though I did pre-rank my players, yahoo did my autodraft. Hence me missing the boat on a 1st baseman.
It picked me Jeff Kent, and he just doesn't cut it. I picked up both Conor and Jacobs off the WW.

As to my OF, I do swap the guys around. My plan is to play Rocco, but I got the feeling he wasn't 100% lately, so that's why I have him on my bench. I'm planning to play Bonds and ride him as long as he'll stay healthy. Once either Rocco looks better, I will swap out Drew.

Here are the available 1B:
Nick Johnson (Was - 1B) DL
Ryan Shealy (KC - 1B)
Mark Loretta (Hou - 1B,2B)
Sean Casey (Det - 1B)
Shawn Green (NYM - 1B,OF)
Casey Blake (Cle - 1B,OF)
José Vidro (Sea - 1B,2B)
Ben Broussard (Sea - 1B)
Xavier Nady (Pit - 1B,OF)
Mike Lamb (Hou - 1B,3B)
Tony Graffanino (Mil - 1B,2B,3B,SS)
Scott Hatteberg (Cin - 1B)
Kevin Millar (Bal - 1B)

Jacobs totally works..I just traded for him and Saito (don't worry, I have broxton) on your advice to get a better closer - thanks, btw...

I would move one of your SS for a stud player in another position (even 1B)....up to you, but moving Tejada to someone with a hole in their MI positions for a Berkman, Tex type would be a great move IMO....
