I like your team and don't really see any glaring weaknesses. Initially I thought maybe you should try to upgrade from Johjima at catcher, but the rest of your squad looks pretty balanced and I don't know that I'd make any moves like that. Besides, half your league is a little weak at catcher -- you'll be fine.

Any input on my team would be appreciated:

i like your team, your main weakness is with closers, mostly because id worry about lyon losing the job to pena and in a 10 team league you need more than 2 closers to be competitive in saves...i know BS is also a category, so at the same time the more closers the more BS, but i try to win cats as opposed to NOT LOSE cats like BS or L ...i would try and trade lyon while he is still the closer, and id drop escobar...i think EE is the best position player there, and marmol is the best pitcher...i know he's not the closer right now, but pretty much everyone agrees he has the best stuff in that pen, and if you wait till he's actually named closer he'll probably already be picked up

I'd drop Escobar for Kent. Kent isn't what he used to be, but he's a clean-up hitting 2B with the potential to hit .300, 20-25, 90-100. Rickie Weeks has proven to be fragile, so having a Weeks/Kent combo would be a nice risk/reward pair. Also, it isn't unreasonable to think that they could both get off to good starts and you could ship one of them off for a good buy low candidate early in the year.

I would also keep my eye on Shaun Marcum, but probably no need to move on that now.

if gagne is available get him. i know you only start 2 but he'll be good trade bait if anything.

i like the squad but having a lot of rockies is iffy. if the team struggles you fall hard. i like everyone except maybe weeks, who is good, but seems really injury prone. but you have figgins!!!

Thanks for the help man

1. Your offense looks very solid except for two points: (1) Other than Figgins I do not know where your getting steals maybe Milly (2) Possibly average..Burrell kills you but other than that you had a great draft for offense
2. Pitching is solid Webb/CC/and underrated Billingsly are nice...I also like Cain
3. Saves might be tough; I am not sold on Capps/Pitt..but than again when they win you will most likely get the save; out of available I would have to say Gagne (sox fan so hard to say) Marmol is worth a watch
4. I might pick up Kouz; in case Atkins sucks...I like Kouz ceiling...Maybe drop Y

All in all I really like your squad. You have a nice balance on OF and your your top two starters are dope. Your following two (Bill and Cain) are nice picks too.

Again look at the RP...during the season they always pop up

If it's me I keep Escobar. I don't see a problem with having rockies, and I wouldn't pick up any more closers if you only start two. That'd be like picking up a second catcher. If you're going to pick up a closer in that situation it should be because you're replacing one of the three you've got imo.

You might be a LITTLE slow, but Weeks is no steals slouch if healthy, and Escobar can run. I might look to the wire after the season starts to replace Millege depending on how he begins the season.
