Just finished my 10-team Rotisserie draft. There's no max innings pitched, so I was able to stock up on SP's.

C- Piazza
1B- Konerko
2B- Julio Lugo
3B- Arod
SS- Hanley Ramirez
OF- Sizemore
OF- Andruw Jones
OF- Markakis
DH- Thome
BENCH- Griffey

SP- C.C. Sabathia
SP- Dan Haren
RP- Papelbon
RP- Lidge
P- Fuentes
P- Joe Borowski
P- Mussina
BENCH- A.J. Burnett
BENCH- Javier Vazquez
BENCH- Ted Lilly
BENCH- Kelvim Escobar

I like how I was able to snag 4 solid closers. I'll be able to start all of them on days when not too many of my starters are going. Leave a reply with a link to your post and I'll gladly reply.

Very good team, no weakness on offense except for a lack of depth, but with no max IP's you have to exploit that. Very good balance all around. Have fun winning this league.

i wouldnt exactly call lidge a "solid closer" he has been very wild ever since albert tore him apart in the playoffs. one major hold i see is that no one knws which thome will show up this year so i would def look for someone to put on your bench who will actually give u some stats since i feel griffey's value is not the best right not with the way his wrist is. try to trade one of those pitcher for a guy who will give u solid stats when i predict thome goes down with an injury

Solid offense. Pitching isn't quite as good though. Your team lacks a stud ace, and Lidge is scaring the crap out of me right now. Papelbon and Fuentes are good but I might see if you can combine Lidge/Borowski and get a more solid closer.

Very potent, well balanced hitters. I think you need to sell high on Vasquez and Lilly and get a better SP4 instead. Might I recommend a HUGE sleeper in Zack Greinke of KC? Deal one of your closers with like Vasquez in a package and you'll snag a good SP to make your team darn near perfect.

Help!

Like everyone else said, Lidge might be a problem, it'd be good to have Wheeler as a backup if possible.

Good team!!! I dont know if you think Thome is a risk, I have him on my squad in a H2H 14 team league and Im thinking bout combo'n him with someone with a sleeper status. If you could do that with Thome and and maybe Griffey with another Starter I think you could get an ace closer if thats what your lookin for.
Like I said Thome is a DL man waiting to happen same with Griffey so your upside with a closer like maybe Zumaya and Jones are better.
WHIP!!!!! Let me know, I will analyze your team as well!!!
