Welcome to the cafe! I think the responses have been a little tardy around the holidays.

Like you said, it's a team with a lot of upside. You might have a top 6 team next year already.

Personally, I prefer teams with a little more of a balance between established veterans and could-be-type players. The problem now is that if half of these guys pan out, you'd still need to find players to fill the other half of your team in order to win.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

I'd be patient with this lineup, see how spring training goes, but once the season starts be ready to aggressively shop some of your young OF if any of them get on a hot streak. I'd also say pray for Rickie Weeks to get out of the blocks quickly and move him if he does. You're going to have a lot of ups and downs with this team. My priority would be pitching depth. Right now everything is hinging on a lot of iffy scenarios (Verlander, Carmona, Johnson, Kershaw etc.)

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=365263

Be patient! You lack any top round talent, but have some nice, young movable talent. With some patience and good managerial moves, you could build something nice.
