I like your offense, but you will need to pick up some steals - probably in place of Murton.
You won't want to trade any of your core pitchers (Zambrano, Prior, Bonderman, and the closers) so maybe you can still draft some steals or package Murton/Kearns and a pitcher for them?

I see you like the Cubs.
lo yea i do but im not going to draft crappy players from the cubs just becuse there the cubs i drafted only players from the cubs that have big potential and i got lee in bargain so i accepted it also i was kind of desperate for 1B before being that tracy was my starting 1B before.

I like your pitching, although Francis seems an odd choice. I'm sure there must have been a better option at the time. What if he never leaves mile high?
Good stuff so far.......
