Keep Tracy, he'll be your solid UTIL#2. I have a lot of faith in him having a breakout year.

I'd look into getting some young pitching studs. As a keeper league I don't see your franchise pitcher. Carpenter is good (but a ten year old pitcher), Smoltz and Millwood are well into their twighlight. The next best thing you have is Zito, who is not a solid #2.

I like Tracy, keep him. I would drop Millwood and pickup Maddux though, thats just my personal preference. I would also upgrade at closer over Jones, I think he will lose his job soon.

Your hitting isnt that great, but you do have standouts like Pujols and Bay to carry your team. I like McCann but I dont expect a repeat from last year and Thome is another year older.

The team is good and I am high on yoru 1-2-3 punch with Carpenter, Smoltz, and Zito for your rotation. Your team could do good things but I would keep my eye out for better hitting.

I would drop millwood for either maddux or Rodney. I think you might be a little short on saves, so watch the waiver wire (is julio available?). I would consider trading kearns or hawpe for a closer or a speed guy. I don't see you breaking 80 steals, and in roto I think that will hurt. I hate beltre, but that's good value on him.
