I think your hitting is very solid. Main concern would be speed. Victorino and Bourn should swipe a few, but after them it's only really Melky who does any form of running.

I like the pitching a lot. A lot of strike out guys, and I think your two main closers are better than they are getting credit for coming into the season.

I guess the only thing is speed man - other than that it looks like a very balanced and well rounded team ;-D

i like your offense a lot for a 12 team league, especially power-wise. your pitching on the other hand, may not be so hot. sabathia is your only real proven star. Everyone else is either an injury risk (sheets, gagne, possibly smoltz, etc.), unproven, or declining. none of your closers have a complete lock on their respectice jobs. maybe package some power for a stud closer and another decent SP or some speed.

whatcha think? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=324750

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

Great looking team GJG. I politely disagree with the above poster regarding your pitching- I have a lot of confidence in Smoltz. However, I do agree with Ryan- look into some speed. It would be really sweet if you could find someone high on Manny enough to get a nice young potential keeper with some wheels for him- a Rios, Pence type.

I recently was just offered..

I TRADE: Raul Ibanez, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Dave Bush

FOR: Orlando Cabrera and Willy Taveras

That would help me with steals a lot. What do you think?

I like it man. I think Ibanez roughly = Taveras, and O-Cab > Bush Cabrera.

Good looking team, and I love the deal for you, especially if this is Roto. Tavares/Bourn/Victorino will give ou plenty of steals. Also, an deal that gets Dave Bush off your team is a good one in my mind. :-D

I like the team and the trade. The main problem I see is that you are taking up two outfield spots with Taveras and Bourn(of course you need the speed), but you are talking about 3 homers and possibly 40 rbis out of those 1000 at bats. That is alot of power to overcome, so you might want to try and trade one of those burners.

I like the team overall, nice balance of power and speed if you pull the trigger on that deal, too. If youre looking to upgrade anywhere, I'd consider flipping either Zimmerman or Ramirez for a reliever. Not sure I'd be comfortable with Gagne. But I like your SP, with guys like Gorzelanny and Burnett who I think will be solid contributors despite some people being down on them. And for a 2 C league yours are pretty solid.

Help me?
