You got your speed covered with Bourn and Escobar on the bench, two good pickups. If Wells and Haf bounce back, you have a great offense. Your pen is solid. I'd just possible try and look for one more proven SP. Blanton is on the fringe of being that and Jiminez and Clay could work out but I'd look for a sure bet because you don't know about Carmona just yet.

Pretty good infield there. Outfield is pretty good as well, but let's hope Vernon turns it around this season.
For the pitching, the three guys you have on the bench are not good enough, but the ones who are starting are very reliable.
I like how you have Yunel there since he has multiple eligibility.

Good luck!

Not bad at all...altho I dont think you get enough SB out of your starters. Great hitting though, especially for avg...you should take that category. Pitching is real solid with some upside on the bench! You should definitely compete. Good luck and thanks with mine

solid offense, altho I'm not sold on your SP. I'm not high on Carmona this year. Try to deal a bad for another solid SP.

I agree with this, Carmona is highly overrated IMO. I also have a lot of worries about Dan Haren. People attribute his drop off at the end of last season to BABIP and bad luck, but I also noticed that his troubles began the instant the A's traded Kendall (and there was a lot of griping in the clubhouse about that one). I would package Wells and maybe Jimenez or Buchholz for a solid SP, and then just plug Bourn, as you're missing a lot of steals as well. Grabbing an iffy closer off the WW wouldnt be a bad idea either.

Thanks for the help on mine, and Ortiz at 18 8-o nice

I can't give you the best advice with so many categories on hand, but here are a few impressions:

Your offense has a nice blend of power and some speed (it's not that fleet a foot but it's very solid with TB, SLG into account). I think you reached for Kendrick, but I think you bounced back well with relative bargains in Hafner, Kemp, and Hamilton.

Your pitching leaves somewhat more to be desired. I think you overdrafted on Haren and Carmona (personally I don't want to pay for where they're going) as I see either or both having some possible regression in WHIP, possibly in K/BB because neither is really a strikeout pitcher. Your SP lacks some depth, but I think it's of decent enough quality. I wouldn't worry much about the RP you assembled. Even if K-Rod is your last closer left standing, you're getting good ratios out of that group and you're counting holds which should be no problem if Soriano chokes in Atlanta and/or Betancourt doesn't win the closing job.

I think you absolutely need help with your starters. You have amazing relievers though. You also have a pretty light hitting OF, but that should be made up for with your infield.
