you need to have five relief pitchers starting at all times in the rp rp p p p slots because relief pitchers on average have eras a run lower than starters. you can easily acquire rp's that k a man per inning, sometimes more, at a low whip. you'd be best off inserting either one or two rp with sp duration at sp and sp on days your starters have off as well - current pitchers that fit this profile are chad billingsley, oscar villareal, kevin gregg, and hector carrasco (if he doesnt move into the starting lineup for escobar). do not carry hitters on your bench, they are virtually useless, especially not phillips or victorino. chipper jones is probably worth hanging onto while healthy but he only hurts yoru team sitting on your bench.

and unrelated - what's your take on despicably corrupt obese norwegians?

Good well rounded team you can certainly improve on the pitching staff.

Your Offense is top-notch, but lacks speed unless Lopez can get ya 50 SB. I think he will be in 30 something range. You have an underrated but good pitching staff. I like this team a lot. I'm guessing that utley was your first pick.

yep he was. the speed thing is why I grabbed phillips/victorino. I am strongly leaning towards phillips in my 2nd utl spot and chavez on the bench to add that last push of speed I really need.

I would deffinitely play Phillips in UTIL over Chavez. You need the speed in your lineup. Other than that, it looks like a solid team, especially your offense. Your pitching should be fine, except saves could be a bit of a problem.
Thanks to soty for this sig

Very strong team. I'd look for one more closer. Find someone who needs a 2B and offer Phillips for a second-tier closer.

Good team, though you may want to trade some offense for a SP or stud reliever.

I like this team. I'd agree with the poster that said to pick up some dominant MRPs and start them at PPP.... if you do this I wouldn't start your young SPs for the first few weeks. You can always catch up on IP later and it's easiers if you're not trying to make up ERA and WHIP from some early blow ups from young guys.

TFYH.

Your batting is unreal, but I would say your pitching is pretty sub par, espically in the relief area. You might be able to move someone on your bench for a middle of the line close
