Your pitching could use a little bit of help but other than that I like your team. Get rid of broxton unless your league has HLDs if not think about picking someone up. Like maybe if Troy Percival is available look at him. Other than that I like your team a lot. Your lineup is definitely good.

If you have time take a look and comment on mine: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=329338&p=2645845#p2645845

Hi, it's important to state how many teams are in the league when asking for feedback. Without this context it's virtually impossible to rate your team. in a 10 team league ,you have some serious problems. In a 20 teamer, you're looking dominant! :)

Mine is here, please respond: viewtopic.php?t=329740

I think he might be overstating your teams state. While I wouldn't call it a GREAT team in a 10-team league it's still pretty solid. Your offense is good, my only suggestion there is to find a better option than OCab. Is Yunel Escobar available? I know he's the popular pick because of meaningless ST numbers, but he's in a very good lineup, could be batting 2nd, and has a good minor league track record.

The other issue is SP. I like Felix for this year, but Sheets is just never a good #2 option because it's a matter of when, not if, he gets hurt. Add in that you have Burnett as your #4 and there's some serious injury concern there. I love Maine for this season, but him and Felix will not keep you afloat. I might look to deal either Sheets or Burnett to a team with deep SP, try to get back a more reliable option--someone like Vazquez, Cain or Hudson, that type of guy.

Other than that I like the team...the offense is very solid and should keep you afloat as you figure out the SP. Hamilton will be a revelation this season, he's a top 40 player by the end of the year, I truly believe that.

Good luck. Any help here?
