Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
So I'm in last place by a considerable margin. 12 team roto league with standard 5x5 categories. Is there something wrong with my team that I'm missing? Cause my team doesn't look that bad on paper...

Well, right off the bat I can see that you have a couple of hitters struggling at the moment (Youk and Tulo are the biggest names). Those guys should pick it up as the season goes on. Your starters aren't getting a lot of wins right now (I know, since I own 3 of the ones you have), but again, as the season goes on, most of them should be fine.
One area of concern is your relievers. You have one who will most likely be traded and probably won't close any more (Myers), one that's a temp (Rodriguez), one who is possibly in a committee (Romo), and one that doesn't close at all (Jansen). Unless you're in a league that has a fairly low IP cap, the last 2 don't have much value in my eyes. That's something to look at as the season goes on.
