26 stat cats. thats a lot to pay attention to. Over all a decent team. I like your bench player for this year in cueto. As far as getting a player from the WW to replace your bench players. Its not really a big deal now, but I would pay attention to who starts out well and get some one on the bench other then an OF player. One to watch out for would be a 2B. Kinsler is a great player, but he is one of your main sources for steals and is an injury risk. He has missed at least 30 games in all three of his seasons. So, keep a look out for a guy to replace that if he goes down again this year.

I would drop two of your bench OF's and pick up both Motte and Maholm. It's always better to have more pitchers, so you can keep the RP's in all the time and substitute the SP's when they start.

Overall a decent team! I am not a big fan of Harden because of the injuries.

I would drop Church for more bench pitching and yes I am a jason motte fan too.

i dont think you need Church. hes pretty much part time player for the Mets. i expect Murphy to be the regular and Church and Tatis to split time.
i think Cameron is a better option than Church. he has HR/SB potential, allthough with a low AVG.
im not sure i trust Nady in RF. hes OK i just wouldnt expect the type of numbers he had overall from last season. hes more closer to what he did in 2007. he could also lose playing time to Swisher should the Yankees keep them both.
it would be nice to have 1 more 2nd tier type starter. aslong as Harden is healthy he should be really productive, but thats a big risk having him stay healthy.
i dont know if this player is available, but one multi position player to look for is Felipe Lopez. hes going to be batting leadoff for Arizona and just recently said he expects to run more this season. im thinking he could go 10+HR/20+SB with good R batting leadoff.

Thats a heck of a lot of categories but I like your team a lot. The only place I think youy could maybe improve a little is in your OF. I am not a big fan of Chris Young. Nady had a great year last year but I am staying away until he does it again this year. Really not a bad OF though. That can be taken care of during the season. Thanks for helping me.

I would drop Church for a pitcher. Maholm or Motte. I always like having more bench pitchers than hitters
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.
