I think your offense turned out well... you've got a decent amount of power and speed, and you've got a few players who could easily outperform their draft positions: Kelly Johnson, Markakis, Encarnacion, and even Kent. Also, nice job getting both Piazza and McCann!

In my mind, your starting pitching needs some work. Santana obviously helps you, but (no offense!) I wouldn't draft Igawa, Contreras, or Lilly to be starters in my 16-team league. To a degree, they are all wildcards without a compelling reason to view them as sleepers, IMO. Lilly's moving to the NL, so that helps...but his history is mixed. Igawa may get you wins because he's a Yankee, but he still needs to pitch fairly well to be worth it, and certainly well enough to stay in the rotation. I realize it's a deep league, but who's available on the WW?

The WW is bone dry in my opinion. The only ones I would even consider are Davis, Kip Wells, Lincecum, or Bailey. And the last two will probably be in the minors to start.

Hopefully my bottom half will do better than what you think, and at least I should have Clemens coming back at some point.

Thanks for the analysis...

One more bump...
With all the injuries, should I do anything? I don't really want to drop anyone, but what do you think about Kotchman, or Betancourt or Punto to cover my injuries. And then who should I drop? I suppose Sosa, if anyone.
