You are toast, dude.

No, not that bad. The hitters are remarkably even/similar, in my view. Each of you has a slight edge at various positions, that likely balance out. I like her hitter's bench better than your hitting bench.

But she has got the better pitching staff, sorry ... in my opinioon, at least. Webb is the best starter, but Lackey is very good. The top 4 starters balance out, but then you have Oliver Perez ... what were you thinking. I know, the upside. But that is fearful risk. And I like her relivers better also, on balance.

I was planning on stashing Ollie on my bench until he proves himself. I'm fairly comfortable with my 1-5 starters already--he was just a flier.

First three picks are the keepers from last year--I'll update the post to make that clear.

Sorry man but I have to say that I like her team more too. Wright is gonna be huge this year. I really like your staff but I'd take hers with Howard, Wright & Lee in there.

Thanks for the help with mine.

Any team that has Chone Figgins on it in an OPS league is automatically disqualified from the league.

Seriously though, batting is pretty close, her pitching gives her an edge this year most likely, but Kazmir + Felix could reach their full potential in a year or two and that would put you over the top.

I think you two are fairly even for this year and I give you a slight advantage for the future. How good are you two on the WW's?
