You have speed and power, which is good. I'd say you could use closers and a catcher. Clemens is iffy also.

i might try and use pods in a trade for a closer. and most teams are weak at catcher so dont think it will be a problem, its a weak position anyway

Look at Willingham at catcher via the waiver wire. You probably need another closer as well....maybe you could deal biggio for a closer. Other than that - I think your going to be top 2 or 3 in the league...Sit back, grab a coke, and enjoy yourself because this team is a winner.

Your team is very good offensivly apart from the fact that i have never heard of your catcher. Pitching is also great, very strong starters. However, you need a closer a good one, and your ste. Also Shields is worthless, why on earth do you draft the guy who is setting up games for K- Rod?

Offence is solid, I hate to be negative but your starting pitching may be a weakness this year. I would hold off on trading for a closer until you know what you have you may have Pitt and Tb closers already.

I think your first move should be turning off your Caps Lock.

You do have a nice team though.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and disagree. Clearly your team is pretty good, but I think you'd be better overall with a little less speed and a little more power. You have over 200 SBs (using last year's stats) and I'd guess that 150 is plenty to take 1st or 2nd in a 12 man roto league. Therefore, I'd try and trade one of your big SB guys, Figgins, Rollins, or Podsednik for a more power oriented guy. I especially like Figgins for Utley, or Rollins for Jeter if you can get it. I'd probably even take Rollins for Peralta. Anything of that sort. Try to give the SBs to a guy who doesn't pose any kind of threat to you (probably most of the league falls under this category, but surely someone has a chance).

As for upgrading a closer...screw it. They'll want offense from you to do it, and it's not worth it. You dominate offense all around right now, and giving up some of that puts you in more jeopardy than a couple saves is worth. Take your low saves score...you'll win anyway.
