Offense definitely needs some work, not least because you need someone to play in the OF while Berkman is out (nice snag in round 18, though!)
There's nothing really wrong with it, it just needs beefing up a bit.

With all those MRs, you could try packaging a couple (say Torres & King) to a guy who has none to get yourself a really good OF.
But also have a look on the WW to see who's available.

i agree. you could definitely use another outfielder at least until berkman returns. since you have so many middle relievers trading some of them is probably your best bet.

Totally agreed. You can sacrifice some Hs right now to pick up an OF (via trade or FA). You could try to do something about David Wright, though I'd probably hang on to him to see what he does. 3B is very deep this year and there's probably someone like Vinny Castilla hanging out on the FA market to replace him if 3B becomes a problem.

Otherwise, I like your roster. I think you've focused a bit heavy on Holds, but this makes for good late season trade bait b/c once you feel that you have it pretty close to locked up, you can dump an RP or two for whatever your problem spot may be at the time.

Also, I like that you've chosen a few guys who are definitely just hold guys (King has 1 Save in 5 years) and a couple of guys who will probably pick up some Saves and some holds like Worrell and Otsuka.

Good luck.

thanks for the help, any specific Ofers i should target? this is my first league with holds, so how valuable are they? the other guys for holds on teh FA has around 20 a peice, but all have ERAs above 4.... so i got a lot of good ERA/WHIP holds guys
i took a lot of holds guys in the late rounds to fill out my roster, becuase the otehr guys didnt. I think there are only 3 teams with a guy who has 20 or more holds (and ive got like 5 guys)

so who should i target?
