Good balance, your injury risks hedged well (Jones-Encarnacion and Ordonez/Drew-Hall/Tulo/Burke), good pitching, good power, a little light in SBs due to your reliance on Corey and Lugo exclusively (if you have to play Duffy that creates other problems). I think you could finish in the top half, and likely in the money.

you have pleanty of pop in your lineup.. speed really isn't there aside from two guys.. some really good sp and a good closer.. dotel has question marks, but having wood is a good idea.. nothing really stands out to me on your bench.. but you should be hanging around all year..

Thanks for your help with mine.

Very good team by the looks of it. Some very solid keepers in Howard, Mourneau, Holliday, Webb and whoever else steps it up. That'll be a good core for years to come. You should compete well in all categories. I like your RP situation because you could potentially have four closers by May if everything pans out. Very good SP depth, although I think I would play Harang over either Capuano, Cain or one of your RP's until they get the job. That situation also depends on your league's settings esp. IP limits. Good overall team, should def be top 3 for awhile.

I like the lineup. Very solid, and you should be competitive in all the categories. A little injury prone with Drew, Ordonez, Jones, but who knows. The SP looks solid. The RP could use a little help (I don't know how productive Dotel is going to be in KC), but Ryan should help to pick up the slack.

Very Very solid Lineup, the saves may need some work but you can always use waiver wire. Like a few of the SPs but a couple injury risks i assume were picked late? Good team should be near the top, could add a little speed. Can I please get some help on mine?

its daily lineup changes, so harang isnt really on the bench, and ill start him every time he starts.

I like the keeper possibilities off the bench

I am high on Encarnacion and I think that

25-80-.280 is a serious possibility for him and hes on your bench.

I like your 3 good starters but you may loose stats like Ks and such because of having so many backup releivers because of injury risk ((ALTHOUGH harang and reyes should give you 300Ks, 3.70ERA and 1.30 WHIP which is very nice from your bench))

I really think the bench makes this team, nice late round drafting.

I predict somewhere around 2/12 - 5/12 in standings
