My team was temporarily named Fromunda Maballs, but I changed it to "Minor League Guy" with accompanying picture for now

Mhmm...Good strike out rates. Faces mostly sub-standard offenses in the NL East. Only concern I have is a possibly poor infield defense, but Minor's going more than late enough to justify that risk.

So in this league I was offered Kevin Youkilis and Ricky Nolasco for Ryan Roberts and Billy Butler. That's a decent deal, no? It would certainly upgrade my 3B slot.

Ugh. 12 teams, head-to-head, money league. I had 4th pick:

C: Carlos Santana, Devin Mesoraco
1B: Albert Pujols, Billy Butler
2B: Jemile Weeks, Jason Kipnis
3B: Ryan Roberts
SS: Elvis Andrus
OF: Shin-Soo Choo, Jason Heyward, Carlos Beltran, Cameron Maybin, Lucas Duda

SP: Roy Halladay, Felix Hernandez, Josh Johnson, Jaime Garcia, Kyle Lohse, Ryan Vogelsong
RP: Drew Storen, Jim Johnson, Tyler Clippard

I don't know where I went wrong but I feel like this is a pretty weak team.
