Not crazy about either of your catchers. I'm not sure I would even hold onto Ramon Hernandez. Posada? I dunno what you can rely upon from him this year.

I also wouldn't touch Tejada with a ten foot pole. Legal issues. And his production has slipped in recent years.
What options do you have at SS?

Your outfield is also old and prone to injuries. Of the group I like Bay, Victorino and Matsui the most.

Starting pitching, I like Billingsley and Lackey, I'm just not sure either is elite per se. I don't know what you can expect out of Harden. Cris Young has a nice upside to him this year, just not sure if you can rely heavily on him though.

Decent team, not sure what you should expect.

thanks for the input on my team-
i'd be curious to know how many players you start in your league
you have a good offense but i don't like your cathers but i don't think that is a big deal- ramon hernandez could surprise in cincy, your OF seems injury prone with wells, matsui, but bay, victorino are a good speed power combo.

in a ten team league i don't think you need randy winn or randy wolf, i would drop those guy for some higher upside SP. With Kinsler at 2B i don't know that you need Brandon Phillips and would package him with Wells for an upgrade at SP and C- At closer you should be alright but just keep an eye these guys, Bell might not get many chances, Wilson might not stay the whole year as closer IMO and Ryan could get hurt. Offensively you have some real studs but then some guys who are big duds- tejeda, konerko, matsui. SS is an area i would also look to move Phillips for. Not bad but could use some work

I really like your offense, and with Kinsler and Phillips you have 2 of the top 4 2B in your lineup. Your other MI, Miguel Tejada, is another story. I would either try to search the waiver wire for a better SS, or make a trade for a better one. I am actually a fan of your catchers, i think you are fine there. Your pitching is pretty good, although you have no true ace. Overall, I think you have a pretty decent team.

Like what's already been said, I would probably drop Posada since I don't see him being much of a factor in fantasy ball this year. The rest of your offense is pretty good I would say, I would hope that Konerko would have a bounce back season but you never know. I think that Big Papi will definitely bounce back (don't expect the same numbers as when Manny was hitting behind him though)as his wrist isn't bothering him anymore. I would try to get a better SS than Tejada if someone has one available (like a J.J.Hardy or a Micheal Young or even Furcal). As for your pitching staff, you don't have a true ace like a Lincecum, Santana, or Webb but you have some solid options. I like your 3 closers with Ryan, Wilson, and Bell and the only thing I would worry about is when Harden goes on the DL this year (you know he will, it's not a question of if but when with him). Pretty good team though I would say overall however.
