This is what happens when you miss the draft and they let the computer autodraft.
After several moves this is what I have.

Standard 5x5/roto/12 team

I have a trade pending in which I would acquire: Wright, Figgins and Valverde for Lee, Cano, and Garland.
Hermansen will be dumped for another starting pitcher.

C K. Johjima (Sea - C)
1B D. Lee (ChC - 1B)
2B R. Canó (NYY - 2B)
3B P. Polanco (Det - 2B,3B)
SS C. Guillén (Det - SS)
OF J. Bay (Pit - OF)
OF A. Dunn (Cin - 1B,OF)
OF G. Sizemore (Cle - OF)
Util T. Helton (Col - 1B)
BN J. Hermida (Fla - OF)
BN E. Encarnación (Cin - 3B)
SP D. Haren (Oak - SP)
SP L. Hernández (Was - SP)
RP T. Gordon (Phi - RP)
RP D. Weathers (Cin - RP)
P S. Kazmir (TB - SP)
P J. Garland (CWS - SP)
P J. Lackey (LAA - SP)
BN D. Hermanson (CWS - RP)
BN K. Rogers (Det - SP)
BN J. Verlander (Det - SP)


How bad is my pitching?
Any thought, comments, or concerns would be awesome.
Thank you!

Not sure I like that trade. Wright/Figgins < Lee/Cano even though Wright is nice and Cano is not. Would have liked to see Helton in that trade mix instead of Lee. What is wrong with Gordon/Weathers? Barring injury, I think they could be very solid in H to H. Your SP's are not spectacular, but it's not the worst I've seen. I also sacrificed pitching for hitting in my draft. Good luck

My think was, my thirdbaseman was not great, need i needed steals. So gain about 50 steals from Figgins while losing only a few homeruns from Lee to Wright. This trade also allows me to move Hermedia into the Util slot, which is an up grade over palanco.

i love that trade, especially since you have Helton at UTIL. You get an immediate upgrade in SBs and at 3B and 2B, allowing you to use Polanco as a UTIl/spot starter/trade bait. Guillen is still a health concern, and your SPs were shallow before the trade. A front line pitcher to complement your stable of 2nd/3rd SPs would be nice.

Don't forget the SBs you'll get from Wright, who, with a better lineup, should keep up the power numbers. The dropoff will be at in AVG, which is why you keep Polanco around.
