i would worry about your pitching staff to be honest. a lot of what ifs in there like patterson, reyes, snell, and even bush and hill to an extent.

i might try and move someone like magglio for a reliable starting pitcher.

I agree with Cosmo- your SP is a big question mark. You could try to wait until Jones plays a few games and then move him for a SP. Your offense is strong and if Young and Fielder perform (and I think they will be decent) you have some good chips to move for a SP. Who is around on the FA wire?

It is a points league. You will SMASH the competition with that lineup. And all the SPs are high K guys so you will be okay there.

I like the suad, just pick up SP's as they emerge

I would watch Prior and grab him if he ever joins the cubbies again. Realistically, I like Bonser, Vargas, and maybe Looper but probably no more than anyone you have. Ejay is right- grab the hot hand if any of the above guys emerge.

I am a big Jennings fan this year...I would pick him up. Heck, even when he was on Colorado he put up good numbers and I would think (but not do) about drafting him.

Getting him out of Colorado should do wonders for his stats.

Who did you take at 8? None of your pitchers looks worthy at that spot. You can build a decent rotation from that selection too... Did you go RP?

Forget Benson - he won't pitch in '06. I agree that Jennings is someone to watch. And I'm keeping an eye on D. Davis and Bonser. Good luck.
