Well, no, no glaring weaknesses. You have the stolen bases covered, but the offense overall doesnt look spectacular, huff and teixera and bay seem to be your only runs. You have a good pitching staff, think about maybe trading chad cordero for a guy with proven talent for more than a year(offense), you could get a high value for him in most leagues.

No, no glaring weaknesses. That's a really deep lineup. Do you think someone would be willing to trade a premier player for a pair of guys? Maybe flip Mora and Winn for a premier closer or high end starter (Pettitte/Smoltz range)? Depth usually isn't a bad thing though.

Only FA's that jump out at me are Loaiza and Bedard, but I don't think I have anyone I want to drop for either of them.

I would actually take both of those SPs over Olly Perez and Matt Morris.

Solid team, you are just missing a true #2 fantasy SP.

Really? You'd rather have Bedard or Loaiza than Perez? That surprises me a little.

I still think I'll stick with what I have unless I can swing a trade for significantly better pitching. If I could stay with Peavy/Hudson/Sabathia and either Perez or Morris as my #5 and add a good #2 SP, I think I'd be set.

I don't see any glaring weaknesses. I really like your team.


Be careful with Perez though. He killed a lot of teams early last year. I'd probably sit him during his first couple starts to see if he can keep his WHIP down. If you draft was anything like mine, then Mora lasted a really long time in the draft...way longer than Cantu. In my opinion, I think Mora and Cantu will have very similar seasons with a slight edge going to Cantu. That said, I don't think you will get squat for Mora in a trade, however, I think you can get a really good starter if you package Cantu with someone else. I think Cantu's trade value is much greater now than it will be by the allstar break. Mora is very undervalued right now...

Good luck!
