It's a 12 Team 5x5 Roto. What do you think of the team? Any steals? Any big weakness? Any players I should trade? Etc

Your hitting is fine (monster 1B platoon with Pena and Ortiz) but your pitching is way too weak for a 12 teamer. Your relief staff is fine with a couple of consistent Corderos and a possible sleeper hit in Gagne, but your pitching doesn't exactly strike fear in my heart. You need better pitching badly, my friend. I'd suggest trading Dunn (plenty of homers from Ortiz, Pena, Hawpe, Chipper and Sheff if they're healthy, and Thomas if he's not too old yet) for a quality high tier SP like Webb, Sabathia, or Hamels. You need one. Bad.


Rocinante2: you know
Rocinante2: its easy to dismiss the orioles as a bad team
ofanrex: go on
Rocinante2: i'm done
Rocinante2: lmao

Yea, I know my SP is week....
My plan was to win all hitting stats, which looks like it's very possible. But come up middle in Pitching. I like my SVs potential and this might be enough to place 2nd-3rd in Saves. My main concern is ERA/Whip

The person with Arod wants to trade him. Would something like Chipper/Cordero (either) be worth it? I'm thinking it's going to hurt too much in SV and ERA/WHIP to make up for a marginal benefit in hitting since I'm already near the top.
