I'll try to help you out, I'm not sure what you are looking for. You have some quality speed with Rollins, Phillips, Granderson and Hart. I haven't really checked what their SB% are but obviously good base stealers are very important in your league. I guess I'm not sold on a Cliff Lee repeat, but I do like your choice of Gallardo. Harden may be the best fantasy pitcher when healthy, but anytime you see an update next to his name you have to cringe
Well your team can always be improved, but it is hard to say for sure at this point. I think between Ankiel, Young, Lind, and Matsui you should be able to fill your final two outfield spots. Obviously your going to hope Alex Gordon lives up to the hype. I'm not sold on Shoppach's PT so monitor that at the start of the year and keep an eye on a catcher situation like Texas'. You clearly have power and speed, although I do worry that some of your guys aren't going to put up big time averages. It's the start of the season, take in a month and check your weaknesses and go from there
I think your biggest weakness is SP. I like Carpenter and Scherzer as late round value picks but I am not a fan of C. Lee (you had to overpay for him after last year, if the wins don't come he is a 5th starter), Harden (huge injury potential), Gallardo (young and injury risk), Gavin Floyd (low K #s, only valuable if he gets wins).
Your offense looks pretty good. I think you have a lot of marginal outfielders. Guys that are good, but are not great, i.e. Ankiel, Matsui, Young, Lind. If I were you I would try to package a few outfielders for a bigger bat. Steals look good with Hart, Granderson, Rollins, etc.
If I had your team I would hope that Big Papi, Harden, and Lee start off hot then move them ASAP for a bat and an ace. Good luck!
