I like your team. I do think you should have a solid back up plan for Chipper Jones. Ichiro will hae another 200 hit season so that alone makes your OF solid. Pitching is very solid, Felix is ready for the big season.

Pretty balanced offense, I would grab a backup first basemen behind Garko though. He is solid but I might get insurance. I'd definitely start Thome over Uggla, only due to fact Uggla can hurt you in avg often. You might want to look to trade Uggla for a backup OF since your really don't need Dan since you have Utley.

Staff is good too, I don't believe Benoit is the closer, believe it is CJ Wilson, I could be wrong. Besides you potentially have 5 closers, I'd drop Benoit and add a bat. Maybe a 1B/OF type of player if ones available. Maybe Votto or someoen more versatile like Wigginton.

Other than that I might also to try and find a replacement for Maddux since hes kinda irrelevant in fantasy just like Buehrle, both are consistent but don't offer much in terms of Ks and other cats. For roto a good k and whip pitcher is important so perhaps Marcum is available.

Other than that, I think you can compete I would add another offensive bat and get rid of one of your closers and Maddux.

well ur lucky your not in a keeper league..haha. that is one old offense with jones, jeter, suzuki, byrnes. wel at least you can argue you have experience. in all seriousness it's a decent team. i don't know if i would be starting garko though. i think he is going to be a good player that's why i drafted him in a dynasty league but in a non-keeper its a huge risk but has the potential for a huge return. not a fan of salty. not sure if he can produce at a high level. i would keep an eye on the WW for RP though, if there is a max IP than you are going to go way over. in a roto i usually like to start the season with 4 RP and 6 SP, then eventually have 5 RP, and 5 Sp.

help with mine?
