Looks like you stacked your offense really well. Soriano, Odonez, Sosa, Ortiz & Chavez - you have some serious power numbers. I'd say maybe one weakness would be a dominant starter. Beckett and Webb are studs, but young and Wolf will get you some K's. He could have a true breakout year, especiially if Wagner's in the pen.

Hampton may surprise you in a good way and I'd keep an eye on Rhodes as a cL. I like the risk w/ Nen, though. that could be a huge move.

Looks like a strong overall team, with a very good offense with potential trade value (see Ensberg) and a bit of a sleeper pitching staff.
Good luck

i would try and offload chavez personally. u have a nice 3b there in ensberg who will put up good numbers, and if you packaged chavez with one of your lower starters like hampton or wolf u could get someone like oswalt.

I agree with what they said. You might also want to try to trade away ortiz, most people arent expecting a good year out of him. Overall pretty good team tho
