Very solid team. Though I would look and see if there is a better catcher out there than Molina. Never been a fan of Bradley, has talent, but always manages to screw it up. Little young in the SP, but overall very solid team.

take a look at mine??

Depht could be a problem with pitching. Although I like Zambrano and Harden, I don't see the other starters contributing significantly. Really like Cotts in the bullpen, IMO he will strive as the closer in Chi-town. Offensively, you look very good. Only question mark I see in your offense is at 2B. With your outfield looking very strong however, I think that maybe this is a possible way for you to get better pitching or pick up a better second baseman.

*Edit*
See if Josh Barfield is available at 2B. He's a rookie and has won the starting second baseman job for the Padres. He's the son of Jesse Barfield. I think he'll have a solid campaign, and he won't cost you much.. probably available through free agency.

Looks like a well rounded team. I would try looking for another catcher and I think you could use some more quality depth in the outfield maybe. But the outfield isn't very deep this year. You can never go wrong with having a bunch of closers.

I would look to offer up a 2 for 1 at closer, you have the entire youth movement at closer on 1 team. I would want 1 battle tested closer in the bunch just as a safety blanket

I'd stick where you are for a while. Baseball is tricky to call, but you have a well rounded team. If you need to trade, I'd at least wait a few weeks into the season. As of now, you look solid enough. Not dominant, but play-off caliber. The SPs are your only question mark, but I'd still wait on that...

how about mine?

I'd stay put right now. See how Cain, Young, Cabrera pan out...and your relief. You got guys with a lot of potential.

If one of Cain, Young, DCab starts hot Imight trade them for more solid relief if that isn't working out.
