First off, Ross shouldn't start in a 12 team league.

Aside from Sizemore in your OF, you're really going to need the rest of that group have better seasons then where I've got them at.

You will for sure need some more saves, you don't want to punt any categories in roto.

You seem to have some nice depth in your infield so I would look to package some of those guys with some of your OFers for an upgrade in your OF. Crede and Hall would be the two I think have higher value then what they are worth right now. I'd package each one with one of your OFers to get an upgrade out there. (Crede/Patterson and Hall/Ibanez) something like that.

You're SP has very nice potential but there is a decent amount of risk there with Kazmir, Cain and The Unit. I would maybe try to deal one of your young studs Kazmir or Cain for a more stable/proven starter but thats not an overly big deal.

Anyway, just a few thoughts.....
