C-Barrett - rock solid
1B-P Fielder - great upside in a nice lineup
2B-Biggio - solid vet, 20+ HR
SS-Crosby - healthy year=elite ss
3B-Wright - stud
OF-Abreu - stud #2
OF-Holliday - Coors+full time+improved lineup=great year ahead
OF-Tracy - Still questionable, but he fell to far not to take as #3 OF
.300-30 HR very possible
Util-Hafner - .300-40-120 coming right up
BN-Dye- solid vet w/ nice all-round numbers
BN-Vidro - last pick, could be nice trade fodder
SP-Pettitte - almost an ace
SP-Lackey - solid P, nice k's
SP-Bonderman- great upside, he'll break out sometime
SP-Escobar- could be really good if healthy
SP-Cabrera - great stuff+Mazzone could really pay off
RP-Wagner - elite closer
RP-Street - will be elite closer
RP-M Gonzalez- great upside
RP-Shields - great numbers, vulture wins
I might want to make a move for a speedster, but other than that I think it's pretty balanced. Opinions?

good team! how many teams in the league? is it h2h or roto? how many categories?
i think that you could improve in the infield... fielder COULD be good this year, but i think that he is a guy that you are going to want in 2 years or so. biggio is decent, but i would look to trade him for all the sb that are available at 2b. your of is solid...
i think that you might be a little high on your sp, harden is a stud, pettite can be really good, and i like bonderman, but other than that your rotation won't scare anyone. i would say that street is better than wagner right now, and your closers are solid.
I like your team - somewhat similar to mine. I am not very familiar with Fielder, but if you are confident in him your in good shape. Your RP is great, possible trade bait if your one of your infielders doesnt cut it.
i really like your team. not too sure about biggio maybe try and get a different 2b that will give you speed because i dont think biggio is gonna hit 20hrs and theres not much power at 2b available in FA. Also your SP is pretty good, you have 4 good pitchers...not sure about escobar and cabrera.
The pitching is set. I'd move Tracy to first and put Dye in the OF. Then your weakest starters would be Biggio and Dye. Vidro has little value here as well. If you're looking for speed all the kids seem to love Gathright (40+ SBs), Hermida (15+ SBs), and Granderson (15+ SBs) this year, amongst other reasons. Nice team. Please take a look at mine.
I like your team overall but I'm slightly concerned that you're banking a lot on the younger players having a solid year. Most of them will likely have a good year but it is a risk. Relief pitching is fantastic and your starters are all above average. I would look at trying to add a little more pop to your offense. Biggio, Abreau, and Wright are your only real sluggers so I'd suggest packaging one of your pitchers with somebody on your bench or not as significant for a power hitter.
ok, here's a thought. If Gathright gets playing time, should i pick him up with the intention of him taking over the util role once hafner becomes 1b eligible? when is the first round of interleague? I could move fielder or tracy for a 2b.
Also, I'm not concerned about power. I think everyone in the lineup could clear 20 HR, w/ Hafner tossing in 35-45.
