I wouldn't exactly say you punted saves.. Isringhausen and Valverde is a decent combo.. but you just gotta hope they both stay healthy. if they're both healthy for the better part of the season, that's gotta be 65 saves.

I am not digging your offense at all. you are banking on guys that I personally think are questionable for this season, like Uggla, Crosby/Hardy, Ensberg. And your team is going to have a low batting average for a 12 team league I think unless Pujols hits .400, and you definitely could use some speed.

I am not so crazy about your starting pitching either. I do think that Dice-K will be a great pitcher this season, but I wouldn't draft him with the intention of relying on him as my ace, just in case he doesn't adapt well to the Majors. Don't expect the 2006 Jered Weaver... the league will start to figure him out a little, and his flyball rate is too high, so you can count on his ERA nearing 4.00 I think. Plus he may not even be fully healthy. And to take on Jeremy Sowers and his miserable strikeout totals, you should at least have had a sure bet for a 200 strikeout pitcher.

Bottom line, I see this team finishing in the bottom half of the standings

Wow, harsh words. First of all don't even say that about Weaver. Weaver is an excellent pitcher. He wasn't good because he was a rookie. He was good because he has good suff and is a good pitcher. I like your team and you can finish well.

I agree with the first poster, not sold on your pitching at all. I do like your hitting though. I might look into moving Dice-K for a better ACE pitcher. You also should look for a few more setup men to grab incase they get the closers job. I dont see you finishing in the bottom of the leabue, but unless you do some solid trades you wont finish in the top 3.

Thanks for the advise, I know my pitching is suspect, thats why I asked for help not critism. Anyone else care to give some advise on who to trade for and with who, i also know my infield is a little short of the star power but had to address the of in my draft as these were the best availible at the time.
