You've got two stud pitchers, but you need both to be on their game
having lester and carpenter will prove to be a big upside because
both have great win-loss records, and both rarely lose at home.
your outfield should help you with hits and avg. damon ludwick and
ordonez can all bat potential 310+ and good balance of power and
extra basehits with your infield. your team can be shakey at times,
but overall consistancy is definitly a strength

I see your pitching as very solid and your offense as a bit shaky for an 11 team league. Your OF certainly has the potential to be good, but it also has to potential to be pretty terrible. Sorry, that's not very constructive - I mean, every player has the *potential* for that. I guess I mean I see your OF as more of a question mark than I'm comfortable with. I'd be thrilled to have Mags as my number 2 guy if I'd taken, say, Carlos Beltran in the 2nd or Ryan Braun in the 1st, but as a number 1, especially with Lukwick and Damon behind him, you might be expecting too much.

I don't see the need for Encarnacion with Sandoval having 3B eligibility and I don't expect much from Nady. Who are some available OF free agents? I would be looking for a high upside OF.

Some high upside OF's would be like Coco Crisp, Elijah Dukes, Delmon Young. Those are probably best options out there.

I'd say Dukes or Delmon (or both) for Lindstrom and/or Nady/Encarnacion. You probably don't need to carry more than 3 closers for 2 RP spots, and Bell is an adequate back-up. I think you're looking for bust-out candidates and picking up 2 of them improves your odds that at least one will pan out. Just my humble opinion.

You really don't have any glaring weaknesses overall. Your pitching is especially strong, that is probably your strongest suit. You are going to need to hope they produce as expected, that is the problem with being pitching oriented in fantasy baseball. As others have said your OF is the biggest question mark overall. I might try to swing some kind of trade or something to beef it up a bit or watch the waiver of course to see if anyone is having a breakout. Solid team overall, you just need them all to execute.

Thanks for helping with mine.

I like your SP (the first two obvious but also especially high on Lester) and very balanced infield. As for outfield, I think Ludwick will be good again (if not quite as good as last year) but am very leery of Damon...I got burned by him two years ago and don't want him near any of my teams, but thats just IMO. I agree with above posters re pick ups and happen to like Crisp, if still available. Hope this helps.
