This is a 10 person league so i didn't have a lot to work with.
No offense, but if this was truly a 10 manager league...your about to get owned! Many question marks and terrible choices on this squad. better luck next time. Without seeing the rest of the other teams...last place is probably your end of the year position.
Your SP isn't as bad as everyone else is saying. Peavy, Young, and Hudson are always good. Francis pitches weel despite the thin air, and Lester could be really good this year. Closers are OK. You don't need big name closers, b/c guys like Jeremy Accardo will show up in May and have better numbers than Mariano Rivera. So Saito and the Corderos aren't bad at all. When Granderson comes back, it should improve your OF, but you are still very weak there. You have three top-notch SP, so you might consider a trade to improve your OF. It looks like you're seriously lacking HR power.
You need to take Peavy and make a trade like this one if possible. (This in a 9 team roto league)
Álex Rodríguez (NYY - 3B) Stud and on a very good team
Manny Ramírez (Bos - OF) expecting a huge year/great team
Derek Lowe (LAD - SP) quality and consistant starter
Albert Pujols (StL - 1B) Stud, but talks of more rest
Jason Bay (Pit - OF) mediocure on a poor team
Johan Santana (NYM - SP) The best...barring injury
With your team you will have to see how much you can get for Peavy and bundle with someone of quality, but declining to get 2 solid sticks. You can find a pitcher on waivers and drop one of your slugs.
sorry buddy your outfiled and 1st basemen will do you in. 8th place is what you can expect possibly 6th if there are absebtee managers. here is what a 10 team league roster should look like.
