That sounds about right for a 10 team league. Your offense is good and your pitching isn't bad, but it depends on guys like Sabathia and Wolf having good seasons. Your closers leave some to be desired, but you have 3 guys who should be closers, so you should be ok.

That team looks pretty good. Your pitching could go either way with those young guys, but you've taken good risks. I like Madritsch, and think he's a bit underrated. I'm not a big fan of Wolf, but you can always dump him if he doesn't do anything.

In a ten team league I like to have 4 closers, so keep an eye open for guys moving into closer roles. I would imagine there are guys on waivers in your league right now who will end up being closers at season's end. Be ready to jump.

Comments on my team?

Aside from Ortiz, that infield worries me slightly.

That's funny....almost same comments I got last year....then finished 20 games ahead of everyone else. I didn't want to overspend for closers....I think I got some good gambles....and maxed my offense. Thanks for the feedback.

If your SP's pan out, you should be very good. Plus I like having players with multiple position eligibility. GIves you a lot of flexibility and lots of trade options.

If you get a chance...
