Ok well lets go down this lineup. I'm just guessing non-keeper league with 5x5 scoring


Piaza - Top 7 catcher, you're good here

Delgado - Top 10 catcher but could see a drop off from last year, age is an issue

Phillips - Top 10-12 2B but he could see a drop off from last year becasue lsat year was his only good season but it was also his only season. You're fine here, young as well

Scott Rolen - Top 15 3B who will see a type of bounce back around 25 HR with a nice avg but kinda old but your good if its non-keeper

Rocco - If he can stay healthy he is top 25 OF but if hes not you might be in trouble in the OF. I also don't know what round you got him in so its hard for me to say if you reached

Jermaine Dye - Could see a drop off but that isn't saying much as a drop off is still 35-105 type of production, good pick

Garett Anderson - This is where the team starts to crumble in my opinion. Good player, good team, good spot in the lineup, but old, declining, should see a bit of a bounce back but no more than 20-90 in my opinion and with old people there comes an injury risk

Ray Durham - Again age and he should tkae a step back after his monster year but not bad at UTL in a 14 team league again he could get injuured and he is not on a great team but he still should give decent 2B numbers

Aaron Rowand - Speedy, not bad as a backup OF, will help your severe lack of speed though it just might not be enough. He will only play 3/4 of the year because he will do something stupid but not a bad player

Vizquel - Very old, could mean durability issues. Trying to fix sped again I understand. Not a horrible bench pick but could be better if your looking for steals

Luis Castillo - Not the 2B he used to be. You already have 2 2B sohe is useless he will give decent BA but not else, try and deal him or pick up off ww

Darin Erstad - Could do better off of the ww imo

Brandon Webb - Cy Young, enough said

Chris Young - I think he has hit his ceiling, don't think he will improve and could fall a bit off the table this year, more of a #3 than a #2

Houston Street - With Duchserer there his job might not be fully secure

Jose Valverde - Very inconsistent and probably will loose the CL job by season end, if any of the lower tier closers like Tankersley or Dotel and I think they are better bets than Valverde imo

Javier Vazquez - A good pitcher but not a 3rd starter more like a 4th or 5th

Jon Garland - Wins and a decent ERA and WHIP but not much else

Esteban Loaiza - Not a top 5 starter in a 14 team league. Bench guy at best. Hes my 7th starter in an 18 team league and there are most likely better ww players out there. Try and deal him

Dan Wheeler - Could close, good ERA and WHIP, decent all around pick, nice for your bench

Your SP is kinda weak as are your Saves and then age

Try to deal for Youth, Ks, and SVs and you'll be good because I say you just punt saves unless you can ge ta good deal done for someone like Dave Roberts, Chone Figgins, Carl Crawford or someone who is 45+ SB

not a horrible team but I predict a finish between 6-12

Add Reyes ASAP. Drop Blake, or a weak pitcher.
