tough to rate

Need some context here - what kind of league, what categories, etc.

However, I can give you some general impressions:


Pretty good job. I am not real high on Glaus or Juan Gone (injury issues), but you have great balance. You mixed in good speed and power.


I think this is a potential disaster waiting to happen, if the injury gods don't smile on you. Think about this:

Schilling - ready first week, maybe.......who knows
Lidge - arm injury waiting to happen with that motion
Borowski - partially torn cuff - hope if doesn't happen
Wood - in partial shut down mode already - hope he's back
Escobar - yet to throw since his shoulder issue - due back soon
Penny - yet to pitch with the bicep tendenitis issue - due soon
W. Miller - out AT LEAST for the first month

If you are not lucky, a potential strength could become your downfall. That is just more risk than I would have been willing to take on, as conservative as I am.

Best of luck.

You don't need another closer - Lidge and the others will pick up plenty of saves between them for you to compete in that category.

Sure there are injury questions over some of your pitchers, but I wouldn't let that worry you. Just keep an eye on the situation and pick someone up when you put Miller on the DL.

And I think you have a good balance of power and speed in your hitting, but if you want to get some more, Rollins should be great trade bait this year - look for someone who is weak at SS.
