My Fantasy Baseball Team

I was invited by to join their fantasy baseball league and I was looking for a league, so I joined.

Keep in mind, this is a 20 person league. Also keep in mind, the majority of the team owners (probably all of them) are Red Sox fans. So, trust me, it's not surprising that I have not one Sox on my roster.

J. Estrada (Atl - C)
1B L. Overbay (Mil - 1B)
2B P. Polanco (Phi - 2B,3B)
3B E. Chávez (Oak - 3B)
SS J. Valentín (LAD - SS)
LF R. White (Det - LF)
CF C. Beltrán (NYM - CF)
RF J. Drew (LAD - RF)
UT Á. Sánchez (Det - CF)
BN C. Figgins (LAA - 2B,3B,SS,CF)
BN R. Clayton (Ari - SS)
BN D. Bautista (TB - RF)

SP M. Mulder (StL - SP)
SP K. Escobar (LAA - SP)
SP M. Morris (StL - SP)
SP E. Milton (Cin - SP)
SP C. Lidle (Phi - SP)
RP J. Nathan (Min - RP)
RP T. Gordon (NYY - RP)
RP J. Duchscherer (Oak - RP)
RP C. Eldred (StL - RP)
RP B. Shouse (Tex - RP)
RP M. Stanton (NYY - RP)
BN C. Almanzar (Tex - RP)
BN S. Estes (Ari - SP)

My lineup is pretty good. If Estrada can hit like he did last season, then I will have the best catcher in the league. Overbay may be a huge reach, but if he hovers around .300 for a batting average, than I'll be happy. Polanco and Figgins may switch spots if Polanco doesn't start this year. Figgins will also give me batting average and steals. Beltran hopefully will be great like usual. Drew was a huge steal, considering the numbers he put up last season. And Sanchez is a good guy to have as a utility man because he hits for average and can steal bases.

My pitching is pretty solid. My starting pitching may be the best rotation in the league, and it really isn't "great" just "solid." My relief is pretty good, as Nathan and Gordon were both pretty good steals. Stanton is my only other solid reliever in that group.

What are your thoughts? And, by any chance, is there anyone else in the Sox Prospects league?
