1. I really like your offense. With A-Rod; Troy; Hart and the rest of the OF you should be good.
2. Alot of pop; Helton will help with the average. Steals may be an issue; but with Burns you might be good
3. I like k. johnson...my sleeper pick
4. To be brutally honest your pitching SUCKS
Why?
Kaz is currently hurt. Plays on a terrible team in a very tough division
I like Timmy but who knows how he will perform
You have only one person for saves (I think) and he plays on the Royals

Advice?
I would try to trade someone who needs a 3B (Zimmerman)

Help on mine?

My pitching should be ok i thought, my starters will have good era/whip and throw lots of strikeouts, and Soriano is the Braves closer and should get a lot of saves as well as the Royals guy. On top of that, my relief pitchers are all outstanding as far as ERA/WHIP and K's are concerned, so I should be very strong in strikeouts, ERA, and WHIP, saves you can always pick up on the waiver wire if I pay close attention and I think Tim will do well and that means timmy franchise and tim Hudson. Anybody that doesn't get saves like okijima, bell, and broxton will have era's under 2 and whip under 1 and should help me there a lot. I think Kazmir will be a fine pitcher this year and I got decent value for him in the 7th round

your hitting is very solid.

I agree with paddyp that your pitching could use some work. if IP is a category you are going to want more starters than that to be competitive. I disagree in the fact that i think Kazmir is a stud. Something has to be said for a lefty that throws 94. If you look at it, it doesn't matter that he plays on a bad team. he still racks up stats. he will help you with Ks. hang on to him. this injury thing will blow over...you do need some other starters though. a squad full of relief guys isn't going to cut the mustard. shop a hitter around. see if you can get something for zimmerman because he had a bad injury and i don't think he will be the same

Sorry IP is not a category, they are Wins, Strikeouts, Saves, ERA, and WHIP, so IP isn't a category or you would be absolutely right about that

You're pitching might lose every week. You might want to try to go with just closers. You'd win ERA, SVS, WHIP almost every week and sometimes K's and W's too (I've done 5 closers in a weekly leagues and have actually won all 5 in H2H leagues.)

I'd be shocked if Zito and Lincecum combine for 15 wins. Like the guy said Kazmir is hurt plays in the AL and at some point the Rays we'll say "we have Price, Neiman, and others for next year so we'll shut Kazmir down." (I'd put money on Kazmir either being shut down, or pitching ineffectively during the last couple of weeks and honestly in H2H who cares about anything other than the final week?) You don't have any sure fire Closers and it looks like you have 3 set up man in a non hold counting league. Plus with Hudson and Zito you don't have tons of SO...you're pitching need WORK.
