I said in JRM's (or maybe my) post that every team in this league has at least one weakness. Your weakness is youth, but your team is the team that could prove me wrong. If Morneau, Wright, Young, Cabrera, & Peavy do what everyone think they can do, you could have an awesome team. But that's the problem with youth, right? Will they or won't they?
I think your depth will pay off long-term, though, and your team will be the team in one of the next few years - as long as you manage your contracts right. Your team is a team that I would definitely consider for running with a low budget this year in order to take advantage of the Reserve Years in the season that you need to go all-or-nothing.
I think your team and my team are almost exact opposites.
Hope you get better!
Thanks for the response. Once you took Bonds and Miggy Cabrera was still on the board, I decided to draft towards hte future. The important thing I feel is who I can get out of Free Agency. There are some younger players that will be getting released after this year (Sheets, Prior, Teixeira) and next year, I may not get Peavy back (through Free Agency), but Oliver Perez, Tim Hudson and Carlos Zambrano are also FA's.
