I don't know WHAT to think of my team...

12 team, roto, 5x5.

I think my offense is great, but don't know what to think of my pitching. Any thoughts? Is this team good enough?

You have D Lee, Utley, Reyes, and Manny - all should be first and second round picks in a 12-team league... Good job!

You should easily win steals, and shouldn't be too bad off in the other hitting categories either - though I would love to see someone with 30HR power in your utility slot. Maybe Chris Shelton, Jim Thome, or Justin Morneau is available?

Or maybe you could trade Pierre for Travis Hafner? You'll be trading your strength (SB) for more power, and could plug JD Drew or Jose Guillen into your OF slot.

Your pitching is pretty solid - not as good as your hitting, but you should be able to hold your own. A few question-marks there, but I wouldn't worry about it. I like to have 4 closers in a standard Yahoo league - maybe a closer wanna-be is still available? Joey Devine, Chris Reitsma, Jonathan Papelbon, Joe Borowski, Travis Bowyer, Scot Shields (may not get a chance at closing, but you'll love what he does for your ratios), etc... If any of those guys are avalable, I'd drop your least favorite SP and grab him.

(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?

I'm not that great at Roto, but your offense is terrific, and your pitching, while worse than your offense, is still not horrible. Schilling and Schmidt are risks, but good risks, and with the addition of Santana, Hernandez, and Washburn, you have depth in case one of those 2 top guys fail.
Going to huge someday.
