Not a fan of Hernandez, but he's probably the best option you have as of right now. I like that you have Longoria and Fields. You know one of them will be statistically fine for you. I have Bay on my team and look to see him have a nice comeback. Nice pitching and prospects

I just want some more feedback from you guys. Appreciate it. It was live draft, and I had 6th pick.

Thanks!

Looks like you did really well, only real weakness is at the catcher spot.

I agree with the others. Hernandez is a big question mark but otherwise you squad looks solid. I would prefer a bit more experience at 3rd, but with 2 youngsters there, your chances of one panning out are good. I think you may be able to drop Broxton or Percival (who knows) for another starter, but that's about it.

Overall looks pretty good. I'd try and move bay, as I see a limited rebound, and you could probably get a better player in return...maybe corey hart or chris young (OF)?

Hernandez isn't great, but I wouldn't be too worried. Ruiz is solid, and I think paulino has a lot of upside and they're both on your WW probably. Maybe towles is as well, and all are worth a look if hernandez falters.

Mind taking a look at mine?

I like your team a lot. It would appear your league drafted pitchers early. Your catcher position looks a little weak, but by June there will be only 6 teams in a 12 team league who will be labeled satisfied- happy with their catcher. That is a tough position to get production from. You might want to look into trying to aquire Bengie Molina for insurance via trade, or hopefully still available in free agency. I know he fell in my league draft. He is slated to bat cleanup in San Fran. That could change of course...
Be the change you want to see in this world.

Very nice team!!! Solid offense and pitching. As for your catcher...well as stated by another poster, there are only a handfull of catchers that are gonna make their owners happy. Personally, I don't like drafting a catcher too high because there are usually better players at other positions. What you lack in stats from your catcher can be made up from the production of the players you chose ahead oh him. Give hernandez a try out and if he doesn't work check the waivers for guys like towles(if he isn't taken already, or even C.Ruiz from the Phillies who should be somewhat productive...as catcher's go.Your 3B is a bigger worry than your catcher. Not sold on josh fields. But I do like E.Longoria, so hopefully one of them will work out if you choose not to upgrade! Good Luck!!! Thanks for checking mine out!
