Overall, on the weaker side for a 10-team league.

Your pitching (beyond the two Roys) is risky to mediocre. All your closers should be concerns for various reasons: Stewart isn't established; Izzy is coming off (successful) surgery; Urbina gets it done, but churns your stomach doing it; Witasick doesn't have a firm grip on the closer position.

Like your infield, but your outfield leaves something to be desired. You could get a few nice surprises out of the bench (Nixon or Lee) but don't expect it. Juan Gone (as always) is an injury risk and Erstad is unlikely to repeat his monster 2000 but should still give you solid production in hits and runs.

With 10 teams and a 22-man roster, there should be some help available from the waivers. Who to waive from your team first?, prolly Rodriguez and/or Jenkins.

Your infield is strong. SP is very good, especially with the ROYs. I think your OF needs a little work; it's a group with potential if everyone plays at the top of their game, they'll be great, but that may be too much to expect. You have four closers, so they should be fine. During the season, there are always more closers coming up if you keep your eyes open for them. Overall, a strong team, that could contend if your OF is strengthened.

for a 10 team league your SP and OF in real weak. L-Gon in good and J-Gon is a risk. Erstad is also an injury risk and in a ten team league your other OF shouldn't start. SP after Hallady and Oswalt is very weak too. Your infield is quality though and something to build on.
