H2H is a differant monster. You appear to have intentionally or unintentionally punted steals, buy do have a offense that will compete every week in R, HR, and RBI. Average, IMO, can be a crap shoot in a weekly H2H.
The sheer number os SPs you drafted seems like a streaming type of gameplan. If you league rules allow it, it may be the way to go based on your team. I like your closer situation, and should go, at the very least, .500 in that cat all year. You have enough fringe guys in your rotation where you can be a WW masher, and find a couple of the diamonds in the rough that can propel your team to maybe a playoff spot.

Good offense. I like your pitching too. Cueto, Weaver, Parra, Jurjens, Verlander all sleepers of mine. You have some saves there, although I'm not really a fan of any of those guys. One thing though, how did you end up with Jeremy Bonderman?

On second thought it was actually a pretty solid pick. Pre injury Bonderman was a guy who put up K rates around 8, good control, and solid GB% and he's still 26. Good sleeper pitching staff.

At first glance it looks like a good team. You may benefit in trading a bat for some pitching. You may also want to think about adding a speedster for sb. Other than that it looks good.

You have a very solid offense and a pretty decent staff. Your staff has tons of potential and they should be improving and getting ready to break out. I really like Cueto Parra and Miller...
