There's not a lot of certainty with those SPs, although you have got them for good prices.

SBs look OK with Giles, Jeter & Sizemore, plus Crisp on the bench.

While it obviously depends on who's available, I would look for a sleeper SP to spend that last buck on. Are the uber-prospects (Bailey & Hughes) eligible for the draft? If not, what about someone like Sowers or Pelfrey?

I'd pretty much echo chris' post.

A little more speed, and a SP with a little more stability. I'm guessing Upton can't be had? His value is pretty low right now I'd imagine.

I'd grab a pitcher at this point. Could end up very good, or exploding awfully. I also don't see many saves on your team. Any possibility of getting a solid MR with a chance for some saves. Worst case, would help with ERA/WHIP/K's, and at least you would have someone droppable if needed.

SB's could probably be gotten during the season.

While I do like the prices, I don't like the expected output of your starters in a 12 team format, while your stolen bases seem more stable, so I'd look for another SP to round out your squad.

Thanks guys. I've got one SP I would like to get but I've only got $8 left to spend so I'm not counting on it. Minor leaguers are out of the question so I've got some researching to do. :-D

sounds good...nice overall lineup although 3B - Chavez- 21 sticks out a little? was he someone who had to be kept or something? really like the prices of the other guys though! ;-D

please give me your thoughts:

Chavez is an older contract. He is off the books next year. I wish I could say the same about Giles.

I do not like the starting pitching. Beckett is a bum. RJ is old and washed up imo. Schilling is not reliable. McCarthy is unproven and D. Cabrera can't throw strikes.

The offensse looks good, with some decent prices like Chipper and Sizemore, though you should have gone with a scrub before paying $15 for someone like M. Giles.

IMO, you handcuffed yourself by paying 50 for Pujols.

Well it cost me more than I wanted but I got Burnett. Much like my other SP he has a lot of potential and risk involved. Between the 7 SP I should be able to but together a decent rotation.
