BN S. Hitchcock (SD - SP,RP) SPRPPBench - 87.2 6 0 68 4.72 1.40

I know, I know, I might be in trouble on relief pitching, I'm taking a chance on Lopez to be a solid closer for the Jays. Also worth noting is that there is no minimum for innings pitched, how should that affect my strategy?

Wow! For 20 teams I'm pretty impressed with the batting line-up. I'd take that order in a 12 team league. Now your pitching on the other hand, yeeeesh. I'd rather not think about it. Halladay is of course, awesome and Clement is a very solid #2 option. After them, you are pinning your hopes that a bunch of young, unproven guys come through for you. Wells, Eaton, Zambrano and Lee all have talent and potential. The question is, will they all answer the call this year or next? I think if two of them step up, you could be in decent shape. You are corrrect in your assessment of your RP's. Not a lot going on there. A lot of guys who could blow your team ERA and WHIP out of the water......

Overall, pretty darn good for 20 teams......

Um, I feel the exact opposite of hooligan. I dig your pitching. A 20 team league and your third starter had a 3.25 era last year. Great. I'm impressed.

As for your hitting: I am wary of Giambi this year, I think that last year was a career year for Michael Young, Rich Aurilia is a chump, and Jim Edmonds is injury prone. Overall, though, I agree with Hooligan. Very good.

I'm in a 20 team league and would be thrilled with that lineup. Congrats, and enjoy coasting to 1st place.
