How does my team look? WHIR

What a crap team dude. I think you should just not try this season, because this team will get you NOWHERE. Man, what were you smoking during the draft... :-D

Obviously a top notch team. Nice job.

heck yeah man, this is pretty much a slam dunk for you

unless something unforseeable happens you are easily top 2 unless another team has like A-Rod, Soriano, Johan, Carp ect.. in their lineup.

stacked team, great job, even dig the util players

i like coco crisp to perform much better last year in your last OF spot too

non-sequitor, i think i need to do one more draft and just draft the great names of baseball, Pujols, figgins, milton bradley, coco crisp, felix pie

ramblings aside killer team dude, have fun whomping the peasants

I love that pitching staff especially if Harden performs well or you can sell him high. The offense is pretty good with 5 young outfielders who can put good numbers and players who can contribute to speed. Overall, great team.

*if this is a sportsline 5x5 league like i think it is, it's better than the team i have in there :-D *

I'm going to nitpick a little because saying you have a great team isn't all that helpful. I think you're a little low in rbi production. You only have 4 guys that have a chance to clear 100 rbis (Pujols, Glaus, Tejada, crede). And I think Tejada may even fall a little short of that number.

You're going to want around 1200 rbis in a 10 team league with this many players. And If pujols puts up his normal 130, those other 3 guys put up 100 a pop. That leaves you needing 770 RBIs or about 85 rbis a player. I'm not going to go and calculate it out, but I don't think that your team will be able to average that. I'd guess the rest would avg between 75-80. This leaves you wanting about 60+ rbis. a number that you should be able to improve with two players through trade. My guess is that you wuold also be short in the HR category as well.

Basically try and move some of your more run/speed oriented players (which you have plenty of) for some more hr/rbi oriented players. Still a very solid team

Mind returning the favor?

Thanks for taking a look at my pitching strategy

I think everything is solid except one thing. I think you need a few more home runs in that outfield. What I would do is try to trade Brian Roberts midway through the season for a power hitting 2B to even out the OF. Your outfield does have power but when I am in leagues with 5 starting OF'ers I try to get around 135-140 HR. I have you down for around 105. Your OF is awesome but a bit lopsided for my taste.

There will be owners willing to overpay for SB's around July and if you are smart, you will get a huge reward to an owner that already has a HR advantage. Just my 2 cents. Of course Pujols is = to 2 players so it is still good right now, just not maximal.

Pitching looks great great!

The offense looks very good but like the guy said earlier you might need a little more pop. Your pitching can be dominant but you need Peavy to bounce back and Harden to stay healthy. I personally think Arroyo will not have as easy of a time this year so you need your two studs to be your two studs. If that happens then you are in very good shape.

Since I'm a little weak on power, I was thinking of packaging Baldelli and Arroyo (who'll sell a little higher because of Spring Training) for a power OF. What type of guys should I target? I was thinking maybe Bay.
