This is my team that's in first place (16-4), but it's not the best team IMO. It's a H2H pts league with 12 keepers.

C YMolina - a revolving door of crap
1B Davis - FA
2B Cano - kept
3B Aram - traded for
SS Reyes - traded for
IF Adam Laroche/Stewart/CGuillen - all from FA
UTIL Milton Bradley/Milledge - Bradley was a 2nd player in a trade, Milledge FA
RF Quentin - FA
LF Jason Bay - traded Manny for him
CF Ichiro - kept
OF Vernon Wells -kept
SP CC/Johan - kept and traded for
SP Scherzer/Carp/Meche/AReyes - all from FA
RP Ziegler/Arredondo/Gregg/Rauch/Downs - Gregg was drafted, rest from FA
DL Hughes - kept

Enough of the wussie h2h leagues. Here's my team from my cafe 14-team auction draft 5x5 roto league. What I love about this team is that there are ZERO players that would have gone in the first round according to their ADP, and probably only two that would have gone in the second round or higher.

12 Team, H2H, 5x5. Just took first place last week. Overall it is a pretty close league, so we'll see how long I keep the lead. 2nd place is 1 games back, 3rd place is 4 GB.

C Yadier Molina (WW)
1B Justin Morneau (drafted)
2B Ian Kinsler (drafted) / Alexei Ramirez (WW today, dropped Kinsler for him)
3B Miguel Cabrera (drafted)
SS Miguel Tejada (drafted)
OF Carlos Beltran (drafted)
OF Josh Hamilton (drafted)
OF Jason Bay (WW)
UTIL Matt Kemp (WW)
BN Raul Ibanez (WW)

SP Ben Sheets (drafted)
SP Justin Verlander (drafted)
RP Joakin Soria (drafted)
RP Salomon Torres (WW)
P Hong-Chih Kuo (WW)
P Randy Johnson (WW)
P Mike Pelfrey (WW)
BN Johnny Cueto (WW)
BN *injured* Adam Wainright (drafted)
BN *injured* Chris Young (drafted)
DL Erik Bedard (drafted)

My pitching has found a way to win just about every week even though I've been rostering 3 injured guys almost the whole year and have some big time draft busts (Verlander and Bedard, I'm looking at you). But I figure if my pitching is winning now, if these guys make a return it will hopefully be dominant come playoff time. The Kinsler injury sure hurts though... should be an interesting ride from here on out.

Hamilton seems to be a common denominator amongst most of those teams...That explains why I am not in first, because I don't have him! :-°
