I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Very good overall. I've never been a fan of Lugo. I assume you have him for steals, but I'd rather have someon like Bourn in my UTIL slot (if he's available). Then maybe there would be someone else to fill in your MI (maybe Peralta or Greene if you fear losing HR if you drop Ankiel). I like Wells and Jones to bounce back this year. Solid pitching staff. Cordero, Capps and Jones aren't that good, but they'll get some saves.
I do like the team. Love the offense, even for a eight team league. Some of the pitchers in your team can have question marks coming into this year such as Willis moving to a tougher league and smaller park but you have the pitching depth to have choices in starts.
I think your offense is really good, I think Vernon Wells will bounce back this year. I think Lugo is ok and agree you probably have him for steals but thats ok. Your RPs are great very strong there. Your SPs are too bad I like Dice-K and Bonderman, So I think you have a pretty good team
i pretty much agree with the other posts, solid team being an 8 team league, very good offense but you'll get crushed in avg...dunn, jones, ankiel are all probably below .260...dunns the only one i usually consider drafting near his adp...i love the pitching, well done stockpiling cheaper closers, other than putz, but you did take several gambles with liriano, gallardo, and bonderman...although im not very worried about gallardo...if those 3 are all healthy thats huge...i would package willis and zito for a bag of peanuts...in an 8 team league im sure there are better options...at least willis has a chance to win games 8-6, but zito is way overrated
