Solid team. You have a lot of guys with upside.

Is this roto or head to head? If roto, I'd be very worried about my batting average, and a little bit worried about my steals. Same thing applies if this is a head to head league, though you might be able to absorb the two losses a week and still make the playoffs.

If anything, I'd try to move one of my starting pitchers, esp. if it's head to head.

Have fun!

Roto.. and I am. Batting average is always bad for me, so if I can pull .270 like normal I won't mind. Even if I get below that, usually it will only make a few points difference. Stolen bases were few and far between in the auction. It was either you had them coming in or you spent a ton trying to get the remaining few. I like Freel's possibility at 40 and last year I didn't have any real studs, other than Ichiro, but still pulled 133 out of nowhere which landed me 6 points.

But, if you can't tell, I made a concerted effort for HRs, RBIs, and Runs.. because I am always one of the bottom 3. I had the best pitching in the league last year but absolutely bombed on hitting. I think I have top 3 HRs, and hopefully top 5 runs and rbis. That would more than make up for BA and SB. Basically, I know I will get 50 roto points out of my pitchers, and if I can get 40 out of the hitting, I will be up there. Definitely going to be wheeling and dealing!

Absolutely! I love your power. Freel gives you a solid SB foundation, and like you said, one always ends up picking up more steals than you think you will, just randomly.

Your pitching is strong--you should do fine.

Really? No more opinions?

Well then I will ask a question.. do you think I have a legit shot at 3rd with this team and probably some solid trades during the season?[/code]

i am new but i really like some of ur picks because of their potential.

Renteria u prob got in a late round and i think being back in the national league he is going to be back to his old self.

also, andruw is going to be a beast again i think..

you could use an upgrade at 3B, but otherwise a solid starting lineup.
