Best Picks: Cabrera, Thome, Cuddyer

Wost Picks: Piazza, Gonzalez

Pretty solid team, I'd agree that you could upgrade your RP, but it is not necessary.

if you get a chance....

I think your team looks pretty good. Given the number of closers you can grab during the season you'll get the chance to add there, so I like the way you approached that.

I'm more concerned about the health of your SP with Harden and Peavy (though the latter rallied later in the year after word of a sore shoulder earlier in the season). Also Sanchez had shoulder problems after the season when he had added about 65 IP more than '05. Keep an eye on that. Otherwise, I think you're in good shape.

I didn't realize Sanchez had injury, or rather I had forgotten. He will probably be one of my first dropped (along with Conor Jackson)

It looks pretty good to me. I think Peavy and Halladya will have good years. Plenty of power, especially given the positions. I think you may have taken damon a little high, but I dunno what else was avaible. Harden and Harang could be great. I could see Gonzalez snagging the Closer job from Wickman, and who knows what's up with Valverde.

Looks pretty solid.
