Great team. If Prior can get healthy your pitching will be top notch. I would look to improve 2B considering you already are a lock to compete in SB with Podsednik, Furcal and Derrek Lee. If you can improve 2B I wouldn't worry, with Roberts you should win SB and he will give you 100+ runs. This team will compete for the top spot.

Your offense is really good. But you have two maybe three holes to patch up: 1. Brian Roberts at second isn't as bad as an option as most would think. It's good that you're getting steals out of him. however, if u could upgrade him into a better SS that gets steals, then that would be good. 2. Depending on how the league stacks up, u might want to get one more basestealer. Pods and Roberts gives u a good amount, but who ever has Pierre or Crawford will be neck to neck with you. By getting one more basestealer, you could easily leap frog them. You've done a fine job, just look out for trade opportunites and good pick ups and u should be fine.

Pitching is fine. Maybe more depth, just make good pickups.
What do you think? Will I contend for #1?
