I really like it. I like that you spent only a dollar on your bench sitters. I hate seeing wasted money on the bench. Matsui at $7 is a steal. Pitching is solid. Power is good, but you could use a little more speed in the starting lineup. So with Erstad and Kennedy on the bench, I think you've got that covered. Nice job!

I really like the value you got with Matsui, and Young. They will be stars this year. But the best player dollar for dollar I think you got was Matt Lecroy. He's not going to play much catcher so he wont have the wear and tear most catchers face. Plus, he's young and has tremendous power potential. I see him having a breakout year from the catcher position.

I also agree with an earlier post which says you don't have much speed in the starting lineup. You did a nice job addressing that with your bench players.
Barry Bonds for US president.

Very solid team.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Any other opinions? Speed seems to be my main weakness. I really like my SP.

Great Values all throughout. I especially like Young @ $8, Sheff @ $25, Russ Ortiz @ $10, and Erstad @$1. You definitely need steals, but you know that already.
