Very very good SP, considering there are 14 teams. Now, on offence, I am worried about lack of power, because you have many speed guys (although there are 14 teams, so I'm not sure what others have). I think it's good you have 2 shortstops in case one doesn't work out, although I think Lugo is underrated just because he had a bad start last year.
Anyways, be active and seek out any more RP during the season.

The SP still blows me away. =)

If Lugo even bats .270 you have a good balanced team. If Patterson gets hurt once I'd cut him right away but with that depth I'd hold onto him for now. Oh, there's gotta be someone else besides Tom Gordon out there. Perhaps Kerry Wood Brian Wilson or Tony Pena. I don't think Brandon Lyon will hold onto the closers job in Arizona

Nope, Gordon is the best reliever available. I took him for the chance he might pick up some early season saves.

While your SP are pretty amazing, I think you should use 1 or 2 of them to upgrade elsewhere. It does look like you could use a big power bat, so maybe you could use one of them to get some HR and RBI into your lineup.

I don't really like Gordon either, but as you said, he'll get you some saves early on. He will become rather useless when Lidge returns though. I'm guessing the big time stoppers like Betancourt, Bell and Broxton are taken? If not, I's drop Patterson or Olsen for one immediately. If not, I might try to trade one of CC, Webb or Haren away for one of them, plus a big bat. Closers are overrated in my opinion. Outside of the few elite closers, they will only help you in one category, while big time stoppers will bring down your ERA and WHIP every week. And they don't have the same aura around them, so you can get them cheaper.

Overall, your SP is top notch, so you certainly won't be in a bad position if you keep all of them, but I think you should use your strength to increase productivity elsewhere.

Let's go Rangers!!!!!


Any thoughts on mine?

Love your pitching- only thing I would say is that you have some unprovens but possible studs in the OF- don't get me wrong, I love D. Young and Victorino, but, espcially with Delmon, you hope he develops quickly, but he could take a step back- I probably wouldn't move any of your arms yet until I found out about Kazmir. Other then that, good team- also not a big fan of Lugo, but that's just me.

i think if you could get a SS like tejada to help with power and provide you with a better overall SS, that would be good fit...especially if the guy is not too high on tejada...you do lack power, and a suitable player at SS...Maybe try dealing Delmon Young to a guy who is high on him...i do not see him posting 20/20 numbers especially since he could not do it in tampa.

help?
