Looks like a solid team, without any obvious overspend on anyone.

My one worry is to do with your pitching depth. Verlander, Cain & Snell are a good top 3, but after that it gets a bit dicey. I think you may have spent too much on getting bench hitters (how many of them will really make a significant contribution to the season? Kemp probably, but the others?)

If at all possible, I'd try to swing a trade for another starter you can rely on.

Pretty much my assessment too. The league on a whole overpaid for pitching this year, doubly so from last year, so I decided to fill all my roster spots with potential break out 20/20 type guys (kemp, milledge) and some pure steals guys (bourne, theriot, pie) for thos matchups where I need some extra SB's. I have a solid core of Of'er, so if I can maybe trade someone like Rolen or Isrginhausen for a solid starter, that's my plan. thanks for the feedback.

Think you overpaid for Papelbon a little. Solid IF and I love how you got your OF for cheap, yet its insanely good. I don't see you winning the wins category that often, though.

Gotta agree with the other guys in that you could use a SP, if anyone's hurting for a bat.
