Pretty impressive offense there with some good power. Webb and Smoltz are solid but Escobar and Garland are always so iffy so maybe another solid starter might help. Pods isn't too great these days but try shopping him for a decent starter or closer to someone who is desperate for steals. Thanks for the help.

i like your offesne but Dunn and Pods is an average killer, just keep an eye on that and maybe with Pods play the matchups. I really like your SP of Webb, Smoltz, Santana, Zito i think all 4 of these guys will be sub 4 ERA, along with 150 k's apiece. With those 4 don't start your other SP's all the time unless they have the good matchups. i don't know if i would count on Alex Gordon provding much though this year.
could use some help with mine

I personally would've went with Utley because I see him as the utlimate trade bait. I would deal Chipper asap before he gets injured (more than he already has) and while his value is still high. Your SP looks good enough to carry you through the season. You might wnat to pick up another closer though.

If you can:

I agree with most of this but I would have taken Crawford before Vlad, Craw has a bit more upside, and with the SB you could have spent your Pods pick elsewhere and I don't think the HR hit would have been that severe.
Since Prior is on the way to the minors, and the rest of your pitching is reasonably strong, i would ditch him for someone else, but I'd need to see your FA list in order to give any input as to whom.

My impression is that Gordon is starting the year in the minors, and I would either dump pods, or keep on the bench and play him only against poor throwing teams like cleveland. I don't think he will crack 40 steals this year, and he kills you in every other cat. I agree with a previous post that you need another closer, but you use the the WW for that. I would try and deal one of your vet sp with a name zito, colon, garland,or prior and see if you can get another bat, and if not, perhaps try and move for a closer. In roto that's way to many starters, because there will almost surely be a IP or GS max. Perhaps you can do some 2 for 1 starter deals. I would keep 5 starters, and def have them include: webb, smoltz, e. santana, escobar, then whoever you can't trade. Thanks for mine
