I'm more of a basketball guy trying baseball for the first time this year. This is a standard Y! roto 12 team league. I picked 9th.

It looks like I could possibly need another C and RP and I am overloaded on OFs? What do you think? What moves do I need to make?

C Iván Rodríguez (Det - C)
1B Garrett Atkins (Col - 1B,3B)
2B Chone Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,OF)
3B Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
SS Orlando Cabrera (CWS - SS)
OF Matt Holliday (Col - OF)
OF Carl Crawford (TB - OF)
OF Álex Ríos (Tor - OF)
Util Gary Sheffield (Det - OF)

SP Chris Young (SD - SP)
SP Daisuke Matsuzaka (Bos - SP)
RP Zack Greinke (KC - SP,RP)
RP Bob Howry (ChC - RP)
P James Shields (TB - SP)
P Tim Hudson (Atl - SP)

Welcome to my Hell (j/k) that is fantasy baseball! You sure did draft a monster Offense with your first draft! you do need to find some saves for your team though. There are some nice closer threads on this site to scour and see if your waiver wire contain any of these guys.
seeing that you are somewhat overloaded on the Steal cat, i would shop Rios for an upgrade at SP and Rp. I am very high on Hamilton, so this wont kill you at all, may actually help to add more power to your team. I do like your SPs, but you do lack a true Ace. your 2B depth could also be nice trade depth.

VERY VERY good team. Only thing I would look at would be finding a different shortstop but if not he's still decent. Definitely look at getting an elite closer. Maybe trade an OF for an elite closer and a decent OF

Infield -- 9/10
Outfield -- 10/10
Starting Pitching -- 9/10
Relief Pitching -- 7/10

Please take a look at mine I’m not sure how I did: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=330334

Thanks for the reviews. It was an autodraft and I think I used a pretty ok list (kind of a mix between Funston's Big Board and Matt Berry's rankings on ESPN.com that I put together), but the first thing that jumped out at me when I saw the draft was that my first 4 picks were OFs (of course Figgins has positional flexibility) and I went ahead and got Sheffield in the 6th to boot!

Do you guys think I'm ok at C? Do I need to make a move for a SS or will Cabrera get me by? Is there anyone who's straight up droppable or is my bench deep enough that I should be looking to improve with trades? Who should I be targetting? I have a lot of questions, don't I?

Here's a link to my league:
