I'm in the same boat with Glaus, his average concerns me. And I agree with the pitching, I'd look for a better closer. And as I seem to be posing this question to everyone with him, why Chris Ray?

I have Ray also....

The reason, one other team (out of 10) took 5 closers early while I was focusing on hitting. I needed closers in order to compete since the pickin's were slim. So, Ray it is. Besides I have him estimated at 30 to 35 saves and I like his chances better than McDougal.

ray is a good pickup, he stands a great chance of being the man in baltimore. abreu mauer and pierre will win you steals. don't sell yourself short on atkins, he might have a good year, especially where he plays half his games.

your pitching isnt that bad. sheets and felix will have awesome years. nice mix of veterans and young arms... dont put much faith in perez though, i dont trust him. but yes, you did a good job of getting backups, though your relievers won't blow anyone away

I think you are totally STACKED in SP. Sheets, Prior, Myers, and Hernandez could all easliy have over 200 k's a piece along with plenty of wins. Cain is a sure bid for NL Rookie of the Year. Plenty of speed on your team as well. Nice bats with Glaus, Lee, and Tejada. The only real weakness I see is closers. Foulke's health is a HUGE question mark and Chris Hansen is just waiting in the wings if anything should happen. That leaves you with Turnbow and Fuentes for sure saves. Also, if you count holds, I might looks to pick up Shields, Rincon, or Linebrink to solidify that category. If you can bolster you Bullpen, you should have a winning team.

Any advice for my team?

Nice team

I was gonna ask how you manage to draft some of the players you did when I noticed it was a 10 player league. Solid team nonetheless.

You might wanna keep track of your closers. Ray could be the next Ryan.

ur pitching isnt bad at all. prior, sheets, and felix are all a little questionable but im very confident that at least 2 if not all 3 will have great seasons. relievers are weak, hitting is just stacked
