I think you have a pretty strong team. Pitching staff is great. Not knowing your waiver wire availability, I would say you might be able to improve your utility spots after the season gets going and you know who's hot.

Yeah. It would be nice to know your stat categories, too.

The easiest area to beef up your lineup would be the back end of the outfield/UT. Do you have any homers in your league -- meaning, any devout Yankee fans? I would see what you could get in exchange for Mussina and Pettitte. Both are aging pitchers who may get you more in return right now than they will in a couple months.

I suppose you could go for some more power.
and a little better in the OF.

Duncan could be good this year
Hart from the Brewers
Victorino
Ethier

it would be nice for you if Rolen had a great year and Ensberg did better (and Carlos Lee might help that a bit)

I think you are good for speed.

Your staff if pretty darned good.

What are you going to do with Figgins when he returns?

Your pitching is fine. Your pitching is more than fine.

You could use some power and I'd likely make that move in the OF. Try trading Markakis and a back end starter (which on your team means a fairly valuable starter) like Bedard for a slugging OF.

Try to move a SP for an OF. Maybe Sheffield.

You may be able to package your #4 or #5 starter and Lopez for a top SS as well.
