I give it a 8-9/10.

When Lackey comes around your pitchers will have to be among the best in the league. A little extra depth at middle reliever/closer won't hurt... i wouldn't trust lidge or gagne if they said water was wet.

outside of your catchers i can't find any fault with your offense. well done!

good luck to you.

I really like the team - SP should rock when lackey returns - to the point that maybe you can move one of your high end starters and really buff out a weak position ---- SS perhaps --- well drafted. Good luck this season!

I love the balance. I'd be worried about your SP. Outside of Haren, a lot of question marks.

Best of luck you stay healthy mate!

Aside from catcher good team. You do have an injury risk with Lidge so make sure to have a plan or a backup man just incase. Other than that VERY good pitching once Lackey is healthy. Hitting is good but could use improvement.

I like the upside and experience on your team. It looks like you have a solid offense, but I am not too sure about he OF. I love Markakis but the rest of the guys are on the decline or have come off bad years. You might want to get a more sure bet out there. The pitching has a ton of depth which I like, and Buccholz off the bench is great. I think you have a nice team, just a little bit worried about that OF.
