your hitting is unbelievable

pitching though doesn't really look scary

you lack a true #1 (schmidt is not #1 anymore because of his age and last year performance)

otherwise your team is crazy
you should kill everybody in hitting ;-D

rate mine please

Hittng=WOW! Pitching=NOT SO WOW. Pitching is OK,not too threatening though. You could DEFINITELY use a bonafide #1 ace!!!
Good Luck! Like your closers.

Yeah, that's what I was hoping for. I think I waited until the 10th or 11th to take my first starter (Schmidt). I've learned the hard way that pitching is just too unpredictable. I think I have some good "value" starters though.

Very nice... our team should be the favourite going into the year. While obviously your pitching is your weak side, I really like the additions of Escobar and generally the upside all your pitchers have.

Please help...

for a 10 team league your offense is stacked, you def need some help with your pitching staff tho, If i were you i'd check out some of these rookies such as Matt Cain Liriano or Scott Baker... Kelvim Escobar is annual dissapointment. I would try to trade for true ACE i.e. Oswalt, Peavy, Zambrano etc etc

I think your pitching may be fine, at least good enough to win you a championship with that offense. well done.

Your starting hitting is unbelievable, pitching a little questionable. I like your team a lot, but you also used my drafting philosophy. :-D

If this is a Roto league: because of the way you approached your pitching, my only advice would be to drop Mike Lowell and pick up a lower-tier closer on the WW or a closer in waiting. Even a good middle reliever will help to eat innings and lower ERA/WHIP.

If this is an H2H league: leave things as they are. You're pretty much assured to go at least 6-4 every week.

Like I said, I think it looks good, but I'm biased.

Oops, forgot to put on the top that it's a H2H league. I like your philosophy!

I'll just reiterate: you have very very little to worry about. You have a bunch of starters that I also targeted and they have ridiculous upside, so I don't see your pitching being a problem at all--it's hard to compare it to such a formidable offense. Also, unless someone drafted four stoppers with their first few picks, I'd venture to say you probably have the best closers in the league--they will get you Ks, great ratios and 30+ saves a piece.

You're about average in the speed department, and you ended up with a handful of 15-20 steal guys that, combined, should keep you competitive, and if Beltran gets back to swiping 40 you should have no problem.

The only issue I have is with Bengie Molina at catcher. Last year he got only about 400 at-bats, and I can see a similar situation happening in Toronto with the capable Gregg Zaun backing him up. I'd look to the waiver wire for people like McCann or Willingham who can plug holes and have a ton of upside for this year.

Good luck, and thanks
