That's an insane offense. Does your league count holds, because you have more setup men then closers?

The offense is beastly.
I like the pitching strategy. I usually go after three or four starting pitchers with good K/9 ratios and a good chance of picking up 14-17 wins before I start thinking about going after a couple top end set up men.
You'll probably be middle of the pack in wins and strikeouts (I'm not too high on Pedro this season), at the bottom in saves, and at the top in ERA and WHIP.

The offense is so good that it should erase the saves deficit and middle of the road wins and strikeout production.

I got a feeling that either Broxton, Betancourt or Bell may end up the closer due to Borowski,Saito or Hoffman either blowing up or getting an injury..

Your upgrades were good, but I don't think you upgraded your area of need. Your offense is VERY VERY GOOD. I would definitely bet you have the best offense in the league. At least one of your setup guys should get the closer job sooner or later, but keep your eyes posted for a closer that will step in this year. And maybe some steals? Overall, very good team.
