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...
