I am not big on Sheets, but alot of peopel are huge on himcoming back and developing a new pitch. You have a nice group of solid SP's, but like was alrady mentioned you may be lacking in saves. I am big on Beckett having a huge rebound year, but you have to decide. You could try to move haren, beckett or sheets and get a quality rp.

Not drafting an elite closer early, I drafted Wainwright and Broxton just in case they take the job some time this year. Last year I had Hoffman and Valverde, and later on picked up Papelbon, Otsuka and Saito. I was going to try this strategy again.

I think this year you'll be fine if you jump early on closers as they become available. I'd say your team looks good, but I'd like to have one slugger in the OF. I'd try and upgrade at OF1 and RP like usual.

Not Bad

Good Team but I agree that you could use some punch in the OF. I like your pitching balance since Saves are so overrated.

You'll also have to work on the picture of Mark Prior...Unfortunately, I think he's done. :~(

I agree that it is a good team. Saves shouldn't be a problem if you find one decent wire closer. A little pop would help, since there are no true boppers other than arod. I'm low on laroche this year with the terrible pirates offense. See if he and prince could land a upper tier 1B or OF.

help me out...
