Looks solid to me. You might consider starting Victorino at UTIL because you might be a little behind in steals in an 8 team league.

I like your hitting, it's good. I'm not big on last year breakouts like Phillips and Pena...So depending on where you took them I might have looked elsewhere. This might be tough, but I would suggest trading away some of your depth for a better player. Maybe try and trade Adrian Gonz and Rios for a stud 1B like Tex or Morneau. I would definitely go for Tex if you think you can. He is in a good team and a contract year.


Your RP is solid.


Your SP is a very risk bunch with High potential. They will probably make or break you as a contender. I would consider Kazmir your best pitcher. But with his elbow concerns, he will need him to hold up all your long. Hamels and Verlander are huge upside guys, you will need them to improve upon their young seasoning. Your staff has incredible potential, especially in the K department. Just be wary of their potential hiccups.

Your team looks really pretty solid. I like your bats alot. Solid through the middle. I also don't like Pena that much, I had him last year. IF he can do anything close to last year though, you are set. He has been on a tear in ST, so maybe look to move him while he is hot. Verlander should be a rock this year, and Kazmir's arm is just hype. I hope, I have him too.

Help?

I'm a little concerned about saves. I've only got 1 big save guy (Wagner). We also have a max 162 games played & 1500 innings pitched. I was thinking about dropping Burrell or Jones for another closer, if I can find one. If not I may try a trade.
