overall for a league with that many teams i think you did pretty well. youre loaded with starters so id recommend picking up another save guy. besides that the offense is pretty good and pitching has potential (i think lowe will be good in the nl, kazmir showed signs of brilliance last year, and madritch showed good stuff too). id be patient with someof these starters and dont drop them if, for example, they get shelled their first outing or two

You're team is solid for a 14 team league...I'm not a big fan of L. Gonzalez but the rest of you team has good upside. I might try to trade Durazo for a closer.

I also might start young over koskie, since toronto's line-up will be much weaker without Delgado

Definately a top 4 team, with a very real shot at 1st I would say. No visible offensive holes, FFBMasta pointed out Coskie already, yes, the Jays will be that bad that Detroits offense outshines them...

And I would definatley give one of your P slots to a decent closer type. 7 starters and 3 Rp just seems like to many.

Overall though, I would be very happy with that team

Pretty good for a 14 team league. You may find it hard to fill the two holes you have (OF and corner inf)... but here is how you do it.

Wait until May first, and see which of your starting pitchers at the end of your lineup get out to a good start. Then deal when their stock peaks.

Good luck to you.

Looks like a strong team. Once things shake up a bit, you can probably trade for another closer... But as far as I can tell, you're definitely in good shape right now.
