    This isn't too bad of a team. I'm not sure of you are playing 5x5 or in apoints league, or how many teams you have in your league.

    In a 5x5, this is a pretty strong team. I like the speed, and there is a little bit of power.

    In our points league, Hafner was second to only Pujols, which means you got two first round picks with him if your league figures in OBP. He is a masher who quietly had an incredible year before going down.

    Either way, that is a really balanced team. For me, I like to load up on power because it helps in so many categories, but you've got a little bit of everything there.

    Yeah, forgot to mention it's a 5x5. 12 guys in the league, so basically just the standard Yahoo league without any adjustments.

    I think you did a pretty good job. How long did Delmon Young last?

    Snatched Delmon in the 10th rd. Not sure if I could have waited longer or not, but I needed OF at the time. He's actually ranked fairly high for a rookie position player.

    my god i hope your kidding!

    i may not be a fantasy expert but i see many problems for your team.

    B Bonds, only plays 3/4 of the games.
    you can count griffey on the dl at some point in the season.
    no backup OF???

    being a reds fan // homer bailey???
    why not wait for him to make the team before you pick him up?

    if bailey doesn't make the team for 4 months, then thats 4 months of production you have lost.
