Nice team, pretty good balance. Two poins of concern:
1. Both your closers were out for (almost) the entire season last year. You'll need both of them to perform really well. Knowing that in most ten team leagues all closers worthy of having on your team are gone, I'd stand pat and wait at least until Spring training to see if another option emerges and if your 2 guys are doing allright.
2. Joe Mauer will be great. I've got him in two of my 4 keeper leagues. However, do you really want to count on production from the catcher slot from someone who's never played above AA? Drop Jose Guillen (he sucks) and get a decent backup.

Good luck.

good team

id be worried about those closers though

also, try to get someone to be your starting catcher until mauer starts putting up good numbers

Agreed - solid team, but closers are a concern, particularly if you'll be using daily lineup changes. With your speed, Podsednik might be a trade candidate, but that depends on the other teams' rosters.

I like your team including your closers.

I think you have 2 of the top 8 closers myself. That's of course if they are healthy. Big if.

Pretty good. Lots of injury concerns with your pitching though. Trade Podsednik if you can. ;-D

solid team except your closers. Neither one is guaranteed to be the starting closer when the season starts. I think Nen and Hoffman both still have injury concerns..

Not too bad. I'd see about getting a catcher though. You are banking on a rookie where you don't need to. Move him to the bench since it's a keeper league, and then pick up another catcher. Closers are a concern, but if you keep your eyes on the free agent pool, you should be able to pick up some help.

Postby Thank you all » Sun Jan 25, 2004 4:00 am

I haven't seen much interest in Pods in my league, as I took him at around the 150th pick of the draft. I was worried about my closers a little, but not much was left towards the end when I actually drafted them. Hadn't thought about another catcher...Actually, there are a few left...we are in the last round of the draft...Could someone please give me a few late round C to look at?
Thank you all

LeCroy is probably still availiable. Robbie Hammock is worth a look too.
