Please take a look at my team and rate it on a scale of 1-100. This is a standard 10 team 5x5 Rotiseree league. Here is my team: http://games.espn.go.com/flb/clubhouse? ... sonId=2009
Please tell me what I need to improve, what are my strengths, and any potential trades.

This is definetly one of my weakest teams, I didn't do so hot. My offense overall I think was great, but my pitching, which is generally the best in the game, didn't do so hot. I tried a new and much more organized drafting strategy that placed too much of an emphasis on offense and not enough on defense. I broke my strategy and bet 2$ higher then I should have on Grady Sizemore, who was too expensive for 1 player to begin with. If I didn't do that, then I'd have had a much better catcher or second basemen. By the way, to defend my catcher pick, I am very confident that Jorge will get better as he has had no major set-backs and he is ahead of track. In fact, I'd only prefer Soto, Mauer, Martin and Mccann over Posada.

well Lindstrom is having some arm issues that don't look good, and Posada is a big question at catcher, hopefully Weeks pulls his head out of his a$$ this year

rate mine please?
