GOOD offense and piching
You need another closer catcher and some speed, I'd consider trading Smoltz or Zito and Rodgers. I really like your back end starting pitching.

Very nice team you have there. Daniel Cabrera is gonna a STUD! with Uncle Leo helping him out. McCann is gonna surprise some people. The rest of your offense and pitching is solid. Might need some SBs, though. I'd probably trade Kenny Rogers for some cheap SBs. Maybe Ryan Freel?

Check out my team, please.

Excellent offense and a nice pitching squad. Other than the Jeter you need some more speed.

I wouldn't worry about doing anything about your RP situation yet...you've got a top-tier RP and one of the best 2nd tier RPs. I would sit tight and wait to see how Spring Training and early April pans out. I've said it in probably all of my posts, but RP is WAY TOO VOLATILE to worry about right now. Last year it was the Cubs, Braves, Tigers, White Sox, A's, Mets, Reds, Blue Jays, Marlins, Rockies, Brewers and the 3/4 of the NL West: Dodgers, Giants and Diamondbacks that ALL went through multiple closers. Do you think D. Turnbow or T. Jones were drafted at all last year? Hermanson? Dempster?

This year it could be the Braves, Red Sox, Devil Rays, Marlins, Orioles, Cubs, Reds, Diamondbacks, White Sox, etc. Just hold on and be ready to jump on the waiver wire.

Otherwise, I think that your offense is not deep enough. To have Patterson as your only bench option is not wise. I think you need to use some of your bitchin starting pitching staff to give you a little more depth in your offense. I was recently able to get Baldelli and Hermida VERY late Yahoo leagues. I doubt they went undrafted...but maybe? Also, be ready to pounce on whichever D-Ray gets the last OF spot (Gathright or Delmon Young)

You have a pretty good team, with a good pitching staff and good bats

I think you have too many starters and can drop one or trade one for a batter

Your list of priorities in this order:

Get Speed (maybe in the OF)



Add a third closer
Get rid of a couple pitchers

Corey patterson???

i agree with whats been said. your offense is solid but could use some steals. unless you can get a top SB guy, i wouldnt deal unless you can get good value. i doubt taht you will make up much ground against teams with good SBs and being middle of teh road in a stat doesnt help in a H2H. definitely look for an RP when the season gets started, like the other guy said, there are about 10 contributors that arent drafted from the RP position. i agree that you should check the FA list for some offense cuz patterson isnt going to help and you should never start him until he proves himself. i wouldnt worry too much about it tho because your offense is pretty damn solid and your pitching will make up for the offense. its not like u need to platoon any of your offensive starters, so unless someone goes down, you only need one more offensive player. im doing a similar thing with my team. id say your team is probably a 7 or 8/10.

please help!
