I hope SB's is a Cat. in your league. You have a plethora of SB's. You have 4 w/ the possibility of more that can steal 40 or more bases in a single season. Tryin shopping around some of them for some power.

Well, you seem to know your weaknesses - Power hitting (along with RBIs). Fulmer was a nice late pick, he should help you a lot, barring injuries. If it were me, I'd trade Carl Crawford (he of the .309 obp) for a power hitter. He's valuable because of the steals, but he's a one-dimensional hitter. You could get someone good for him and still win steals every week. You don't need him.

The pitching is solid, though I assume you know that Soriano will miss the first month or so? You probably got Lawrence later than you should have.

Anyway, it looks like a solid team. I expect good things from Charles Johnson this year in Coors - I'd platoon him with Kendall.

I'm assuming that this is a 5x5 league, since you didn't say.

Oh, and you know that Hinske lost a bunch of weight this offseason because of "Yoga," right?

Sorry this is jumbled. My girlfriend won't quit telling me about "Average Joe."

Good luck. Trade some speed for a power hitting OF. Watch the WW for any possible new closer. Etc.

Standard 5 X 5 scoring uses Runs, RBI, SB, batting avg, and HR as hitting Categories and Wins, SV, K's, ERA, WHIP as the Pitching cats. 6x6 adds a category to each batting and hitting, it varies alot, even 5 x 5 leagues use different cats somethimes, standard 5x5 is the cats I mentioned.

For a 20 team league I think Your team is spectacular. I'm sure you can trade some of that speed for some Power and you'll be fine.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis
