    I have quite a few teams, and want to get opinions. I've just jumped back into fantasy baseball after taking last year off. I'm not going to post all of my teams in this thread, I'll spread them out accordingly. Here is the first one:

    14 Team Head to Head League

    Stat categories:

    R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

    C Mike Piazza
    1B Dmitri Young
    2B Alfonso Soriano
    3B Scott Rolen
    SS Edgar Renteria
    OF Carlos Beltran
    OF Ken Griffey Jr.
    OF Barry Bonds
    UTIL Austin Kearns
    BN Josh Willingham
    BN Conor Jackson
    BN J.J. Hardy
    BN Hanley Ramirez
    BN Ryan Zimmerman

    SP Johan Santana
    SP Roy Oswalt
    RP Ryan Dempster
    RP Ambiorix Burgos
    P Rich Harden
    P Scott Kazmir
    P Bob Wickman
    BN Oliver Perez*
    BN Brandon Claussen

    *I just traded Oliver Perez for Cliff Lee, but have to wait two days before the trade will go through.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    You're putting a lot of faith in Griffey, Bonds and Beltran. Your pitching is quite good, although I'd think about moving a starter (Harden or Lee) for another good closer.

    If your OF stays healthy and Beltran returns to some shell of his former self you should do very well, especially in a 14 team league.

    Obviously Piazza is a huge ? as well, as is Dmitri Young at 1B. If you can't get a closer for a starter, maybe upgrading at 1B would be easier. Maybe target Dunn for Harden?

    Sava, I think the Perez for Lee deal is a great one for you. In order to finish near the top you need more hitting and with it being 14 teams there probably isn't going to be a lot on the WW. So I would be putting all of my efforts into trading an SP for hitting. Your hitting obviously has potential but along with the ones Buckeye mentioned, Rolen and Kearns are big ?'s as well. I would look to move Harden or Oswalt for some more reliable bats
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
