Great team! The only advice I think I can give you is put Gallardo in for either Mcgowen or Martinez depending on who does worse. I don't like Borowiski either though. Maybe look for another elite closer unless you feel Capps will suffice.

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

You have a solid team IMO. I guess it hangs on how Pujols performs. I think your SP is better than what you think. (King Felix plays for SEA by the way). Not a big fan of Joe Bo. but if he hangs in there and remains closer all season, he'll be fine for you. ( his ERA always sucks). Capps, Gallardo ;-D for bench players.

That is a MONSTER team, but I would start Furcal over Delmon. Terrific job though!

A strong squad for sure. I would be comfortable taking this team as is into the season. Your OF is better than you might think, I am expecting Wells to have a major rebound year. But I do agree that you could use one more solid SP. I'm really high on the King, as long as he throws his slider, which he was afraid to do last year after his injury. If he is going to throw fastball after fastball, he'll be good, but never as great as he should be. Then again, if he does throw too many sliders, he'll destroy his elbow. Sort of a Catch-22 with him. Verlander will be solid, but I wouldn't count on Carmona to repeat last year. I have a gut feeling that it was a flukish year (no numbers to back that up, just a feeling), and I wouldn't put him about 12 wins this year. Pedro is a big question mark. And Gallardo was used more than they hoped last year, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts this year, but I think he'll be alright. If I had to deal someone, it would probably be Furcal, as your obviously set at SS with Reyes. I think Delmon has a shot at .270/25/100 with 20-25 SB's this year, so he should be fine in your UTIL spot. Good luck!

I like your squad. A solid starting lineup and serviceable backups. Your pitching looks good with my only question mark being Borowski. I am not too sure on him, especially with Betancourt waiting in the wings. If no one has him and you don't have the roster space right now, keep an eye on him. Or if you get him now, you have Capps at least to hold you over.



Any help? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=330034
