    • Not a horrible team.

      One word of advice is that although it's always cool to have players from your favourite team it's generally not a good idea to overload your team with players from your favourite team; or any team for that matter.

      You did very good at C, 2B, LEE, Ibanez, Santana, Kazmir and Lidge

      Delgado is a servicale 1B although on the decline, Derosa is decent as is Drew. Bruce will never reach the level he was at his first couple weeks in the majors but I feel he's much better than he performed the rest of the way. Johnson and Escobar give you good depth in the infirld. Thome will help in the power numbers but is very limited in fantasy baseball since he can only play utility.

      Not too crazy about Kotchman and the rest of your pitching staff with the exception of the top three and possibly Pelfrey.

    • Put Thome into your util slot and leave him there

    • Try to improve your:

      Overall you didn't do bad at all. For this being your first dance, good job noobie!

      If you'd be interested in a Dynasty Keeper league hit me up. I'm cool with noobies cuz, hey, I was once one myself.
