I like it. Depending on who other teams have snagged as their closers you may find yourself disappointed there with Browski and Fuentes IMO... either one of those guys paired with a stud guy/on a solid team and I would be singing your praises there... but you'll be competitive there regardless...

I think that you have great power bats in your lineup (berk, Glaus, Beltran, Dunn... and to a lesser extent Bay and Swisher)... and Bay and Beltran being strong 5 tool players for you will be really nice.

Chavez at 3B is a mystery bag... will you get the stud or the dud this year...? Ha ha ha ha. But with the rest of your lineup I think that there is no cause for concern there. A couple of nice speculation picks there on your bench I think.

I consider your SP to be pretty solid. Fliers on RJ an OP are pretty safe with the lock down guys like C Zam and Burnett.

Nice job I think... you should do well...

Thanks for seeing mine.
This game means nothing.... unless I'm winning!

thanks for your input.

I said on my post that I was never a fan of Glaus so I hope he'll work out. Kinsler and Martin has good potential. I never like Chavez, maybe he can stay healthy and we'll see what happens. Your OF looks solid for power, including Swisher. Your top 2 SP looks great, Patterson will be your #3 if he's healthy. I think Randy is done. Igawa and Burnett is a wait and see. Closer wise there are always one or two that steals a job during the season so you can wait for those.

looks ok for a start.

Thanks for your help on mine.

Even though Fuentes is underrated, I think you might need one more closer, which you can probably just scour the wire for as the season picks up.

Your outfield shapes up with a ton of power, but might run into problems with average, with both Dunn and Swisher out there. I would probably try to move on them for an infielder, specifically 3b or a speed guy, as I am not high on Chavez at all this year. While you can slot Gordon in, and yes, Gordon is a stud, he needs teammates to score and drive in runs, which will limit his value. As for speed, look for Victorino off the wire, or maybe trade for one of the classic speed guys.

I like the team overall though, I think the staff is solid, especially for a 13 team league
