Hitting looks pretty good. Don't really like Barrett, but everything else looks very solid. You have really no holes offensively. Ya got speed w/ Pierre, Weeks & Sizemore, Hrs w/ Arod, Tex, Holliday, & Franceour, got good batting avg guys w/ Holliday, Atkins, Young, and good depth w/ Franceour & Fielder. Very nice hitting.

Pitching could be good, not great, but good. Kaz & Sheets have a world of potential, but need to remain healthy, especially Sheets. Young broke out last year, and Bush may be a great sleeper. Santana can be dominating, but can be flat sometimes, and I am not a fan of either Patterson or Penny. Closers is terrible. Kerry Wood will not close, ever. He will never stay healthy, trust me!! Like Francisco Cordero, and Benitez gets hurt way too much, and blows saves left & right.

Your team is very good, except for your relievers. Trade one of your hitters and get another good closer, and your poised to win the championship.

BTW, post your league settings next time. (exp- how many teams, h2h, ...)

please rate mine...

How many people are in this league? For purposes of this I will assume it is a small league (8 or so) since unless you are playing with morons it would be almost impossible for one team to have arod, texiera, sizemore and holliday. If you are playing with morons, you probably don't need to use this, as I am sure you will win ;-)

If you're not playing with morons you will definitely need some pitching, since kazmir and sheets are injuy risks and play on bad teams (milwaukee may not be that bad actualy). Atkins is the obvious person to trade given the offensive depth, but you may get significantly more for tex, and then you can slide fielder in. Try to get a smoltz/bonderman type. With the upside that sheets/kazmir have that should make you a pretty good bet to win. Good draft!

The first 2 posts summed it up. Great hitting OK pitching. Trade some depth for an arm

Thanks for the feedback. It's a 10 team H2H yahoo league.

I got stuck with the poor relievers bc I didn't want to take any early. Last season, half of the good RPs came out of nowhere, so I'm hoping I can grab one of those types.

What do you guys think of Tankersly? Is he a better option right now than Benitez? I'm also hearing that Gonzalez (or Soriano) is a good bet to take over for Wickman in Atlanta.
