I'm quite impressed.

Shields, Maine, Marmol, Chamberlin, and Butler are superb keeper picks.

I suspect sooner than than later these guys will replace Bay and maybe Thome.

Not too enthralled with Dye, but then again, I don't know who else was taken.

Please help:

I agree. The team should be competitive. I like the IF a lot. I also think the OF is strong: Ichiro will give you a good year, and I'm expecting a major turnaround for Bay. And I think that Dye should trend back to his typical year, .270/30/100, which is very respectable, especially if you took him late (last year everyone got screwed expecting another 44 HR). Thome should probably fall out of your keepers this year. He's only going to get older, slower, and more fragile as time passes. You will be in some trouble SP wise until Beckett comes off the DL, you may want to consider picking up a veteran if there is one available (the youth of the rest of the pitchers is a bit disconcerting...) But all in all its a pretty solid team.

Help if you can:
