I'm soooooooo stoked for the 2012 season. Not just because I think the Buccos will be competitive and challenge .500+, but because of my 30 team fantasy league. I think I'm ready for another run towards the middle of the pack!

After some 'savvy' trades (Han-Ram and Loney for A-Gonz and Jeter...then Jeter, Lindor and my #8 overall waiver for Aybar and Marisnick), my current roster looks as such:

C: John Jaso/Bengie Molina
1B: A-Gonz
2B: Dustin Ackley
3B: Pedro
SS: Erick Aybar
OF: Brett Garnder/BJ Upton/Puma/Rajai Davis
UT/BENCH: Chris Davis (1B/3B) and Adam Dunn (1B/RF)
Minors: Tony Sanchez (C), Bubba Starling (OF), Jacob Marisnick (OF), Tim Beckham (SS)

SP's: Trevor Cahill/Jordan Zimmermann/Charlie Morton/Clayton Richard/Brad Lincoln
RP's: Tyler Clippard/David Hernandez/Tony Sipp... Blake Wood/Joel Zumaya
Minors: Mike Montgomery and Rudy Owens

My pitching staff is mediocre at best and I'm relying on contributions from some young 'uns/long shots (Pedro, Ackley, Dunn, Davis), but I think I look like a playoff team.

Granted, I had to trade Han-Ram and the potential-filled Lindor (who I somehow nabbed along with Starling last year!), but Aybar is a good enough replacement for both and A-Gonz >>> Loney. And I can maybe nab a Josh Bell, Robbie Grossman or any number of players on the waiver wire.

No way will anyone top me in steals, I have plenty of Runs scored potential and if my 'longshots'/kids can contribute along with Gonz and BJ my power output looks promising, too.

Play ball already!!!

Roto, I take it?

Cahill benefits from the move to the NL, and Zimmerman is a pretty good young pitcher.

Your bullpen is a problem. Does the league feature holds? Looks like you punted saves.

H2H with 10 cats.

Some are are standard (BA, OPS, R, RBI, SB... W-L-ERA-WHIP-K/9) and some are unique... such as: 2B+(2x3B), (K+LOB+DP)/AB, BB+IBB+HBP+SAC FLY+SAC H... etc.

Yeah, but after that it's all wishful thinking.

Triple yes.

Aside from a few dumb/inactive owners the league is glorious.
