I think my offence is pretty good.

I'm hoping my pitching staff is strong enough. May have waited a bit too long to take another SP after drafting Peavy in the 2nd.

Could use another closer behind Jenks and Izzy but i'll play the WW for that.

Thoughts???

looks good, maybe you can trade votto for a pitcher while people are somewhat high on him, i think butler and loney are better options at 1b

please help

Your looking pretty good. I agree, like you said, I would try to package a trade for another SP maybe. Other than that you look like a contender.

I think your team is solid especially if sheets stays healthy. I'm still not sold on ricky weeks being anything other than a hype machine, since he spent a good portion of last year in the minors. I wish I had Peavy, plus your outfield is very good and young, so a lot of upside.

Your out field looks a little risky to me

and sheets scares me. IM afraid to draft the guy.

But good overall team

Your offense is very solid. I also think Hart is VERY high on people's list and think you can get a stud pitcher other than Santana with him, especially in a keeper. I don't like him in the 5-hole. He is a stud leadoff hitter, but Weeks has it. I Otherwise, I think your team is solid. Your staff isn't as bad as you think it is. Hudson, Sheets, Peavy, and Gallardo are all solid pitchers WHEN healthy.

Your offense is solid. Upon first look I thought you might be able to get a little upg @ 1B, but even though Loney isn't as high as others on ADP, I think he will have a solid year. Other than that, I agree that you could use some additional SP depth.

Other than that, I like your squad

thanks for helping with mine

Solid offense, especially for a keeper league you have a lot of nice young talent there.

I think you could upgrade at the Util spot though, Butler is good but you might want a better power guy.

As for your pitching, also solid, I would add another closer though since its kind of a tossup as to who the closer for Texas is whether its Wilson or Benoit.

For a roto league you have nice balance and should compete, I think your going to need to upgrade your power a bit though.
