I think that is a pretty solid team. I don't see any glaring weaknesses on your offense and your pitching is solid. I don't think it would hurt to add one more SP or maybe upgrade at that position slightly. Your closers are alright, but it wouldn't hurt to maybe get a more dependable guy. I would hold onto Longoria and Mayban and see how they play the first couple of months. Other than those things, which are minor in my opinon, you have a solid team. Thanks for your help with mine.

I think your squad is solid overall. i would rec you attempt to upgrade at ur RP position. I would maybe seek to acquire a more dependable closer than either cj wilson or howry. i think a second tier closer would greatly benefit U. As far as your prospects go I would hang onto both of them and see how things play out, as both have good upside.

thanks for the help with mine... ;-D

Longoria and Butler should not be starting

1) Because Longoria is rumored to not be getting the 3B job and Aybar is going to start at 3B in Tampa

2) Butler has the upside, but in a 12 team league there are lots of better 1B out there

Along with that your RP are very very bad and need to be upgraded.

Quite frankly this team is decent, but it has glaring holes in alot of areas. Having 7 starters is a little excessive in my opinion though, and I think you should look to package some of them for a quality closer because you need it. I think Pedro and Randy are question marks, and I'm not very high on Chris Young, but I would make a general statement to your league saying that I'm trying to deal SP depth for an upgrade at 1B/UTL/CL.

thanks for the advice, yeah you're right about longoria, but I'm still pretty high on butler. as a general rule I never trade for CP b/c in the past I ve always managed to pick up guys like otsuka and putz within the first month of the season. so its a definate hole in my team, but i view it as something that will get fixed once the season is under way.
