Im in two. Sleepers, I never know, as they never seem to work out for me. As for tips, I find that hitting is generally easier to come by, except for in the Catcher position. I always try to get one of the top catchers because there's a HUGE drop from top of the league to, like, the fourth best guy. But firstly, I go after SP's as they can make or break you. You definately need a good closer too. So I guess my strategy is to get at least two awesome SP's, one of the top catchers, and a good closer, then Im happy.

McCann is one of the top guys, so your good there. If AJ Pierzinski is still around though, grab him as a back up. Unfortunately, I really don't know of any prospect catchers except for Weiters, but he's likely gone already.

RP is a crapshoot too, IMO. Guys are great one year, horrible the next, and vice versa.

You have a decent team though, especially if Sizemore gets back to form.

Hmm, that's a tough one. I didnt notice you had B Molina before...I'd stick with him. He probably has a better upside that Pierzinski (with HR's and RBI), but if you see he's not playing much, AJP is a good option if he's available.

Granderson is a left handed bat (who hit 30 HR's last year) playing half his games at the new yankee stadium. In that line up, with who he's got hitting around him...he'll likely hit a bunch of HR's. He doesn't hit for as much average though, so if you need base hits remember that too.
