I like this team a lot actually. I think you did a good job of countering your pitching staff with some solid hitting potential which will ideally pan out for you as the season progresses. I can tell that you didn't overpay for some of your weaker positions but instead waited for some good potential value. Pujols is obviously a huge question mark at this point but you have a great backup plan in Teixeira , well done.

As for pitching, you have a very solid and stable staff with Sabathia anchoring the others. The three closers are all solid although Borowski has had his problems in the past. If he stays consistent this year you will be set. If I were you I would stay put at this point but look to make some deals with some of your starters as the season progresses. Well done overall though ;-D

Any help would be greatly appreciated:
