12 Team Yahoo! H2H league, 5x5 Cats.

Getting A-Rod and Vlad on the same team wasn't easy, and i made a couple trades early to secure my offense.
I gave: Khalil Greene, John Lackey
I got: Julio Lugo, Cole Hamels
I gave: MCab, Vernon Wells and Beckett
I got: A-Rod, Carlos Lee and Bedard
^ The ultimate sell high on Beckett's huge start.
But now comes the killer:
I was offered: Johan Santana
For my: Abreu and Hamels
I don't know how but so many things fell into place for me to land A-Rod, Vlad and Johan on one team....The Johan trade i was worried about getting vetoed but the guy really needs another OF and iam giving him great value with Hamels, who will finish in the top 5 in NL strikeouts. Some people even think i might be giving too much, but iam getting first round talent Moreso, this solidifies my pitching and gives me a true ace. This might be the best and most balanced team i've ever had after 6 years of fantasy baseball.
Simply put, if i don't take the championship in this league, (barring injuries), i will quit fantasy baseball
Any thoughts are appreciated you guys...leave a link and i will be sure to help you out!
