I think you have a solid offense for a 14 team league. I think you might wanna put someone else at the utility spot though. I think you have decent speed in the lineup but maybe one more power hitter would help. You have a few really good starting pitchers in Halladay and I really think Beckett will have a great year with the sox. Davis is also expected to have a better year than last so hang on to him. Lieber won't do much for you, maybe consider trading one of your bench players or another hitter for a better pitcher. You have some solid relief pitching but I think you need to add one more decent reliever at least because Isringhausen is awesome and I like Turnbow but another solid RP will help. Overall you do have a pretty good team but consider some of my suggestions and good luck this year.

Thanks for answering mine, I diagree with the poster above. I think it's your pitching staff that is solid for a 14 team league. I like your strategy of drafting some buy low guys (Guillen, McCann, Schmidt) to compensate for the size of the league. I also think, you're fine at RP cuz you can always pick up another closer during the season.

Your bats are ok but, there's room for improvement. That's probably why your bench is completely devoted to offense. I'd look to add a sleeper starter and an upgrade at 1B or SS. You're in pretty good shape.

Your roster as of now looks fairly balanced with all things in consideration. I think your only worry is J. Guillen's production when his health is already in question; be ready to sell high on him.
14tm.,H2H,8x8:
C-BMolina 1B-Votto 2B-Utley 3B-Youk SS-Furcal LF-JDamon CF-BJUpton

Looks good for 14 team league. The big thing is to make some key trades during the year and you'll win it all. Someone who comes out hot that normally isn't that productive probably won't keep it up all year. Try to get a top vet who isn't playing all that well for the hot player and look out. Last year I traded B Roberts for T Helton and smoked people.

Good allaround team. I just think your outfiled needs a little help. I dont like Guillen this year. But overall its a very balanced team.
