I agree ... very solid overall ... keep an eye on the WW for the next Braun type who could put you over the edge in case some of the guys don't pan out. Your pitching is strong and should sustain you well.

I think either Crisp or Dukes are better options than Nady. Crisp and Dukes have shown that they can play and put up good numbers when given playing time. Encarnacion has 25+ HR talent in him and I would not just out-right drop somebody like that -- he could be packaged with another OF to bolster your OF crew overall.

Basically echoing what others have said but your OF is your biggest weak spot. Some guys who could be really bad there. The one positive is it seems outfielders pop up and can be grabbed via the waiver wire.

Pick up Crisp, and possibly look into getting another SP.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Drop EE for a high upside OF. Your pitching is solid, but work your outfield and keep an eye on the WW for any drops by other teams.

good luck

thanks for help with mine

Why would you drop EE. The guy is only 26 and has .280-.290 - 30 HR potential this year.

I think he would have a stronger team if he moved Sandoval to Utility. I see Encarnacion as a .260-.265 hitter with 25 HR power. If he sacrifices some power maybe a .275-.285 hitter. Sandoval has a good track record in the minors (has hit between .337-.359 at every level). Showed 20 HR power in the minors with 440 AB. He will be hitting 3rd this year and I think conservative projection for him is .285-.300 BA, 80-90 runs, 12-18 HR, 80 RBI. Also with Sandoval's multi position eligibility (C, 1B, 3B) puts more flexibility into your lineup. If Ianetta goes down you can move him to catcher.

Don't get me wrong, I like EE as a player. I just think you can get comparable production with a young OF and add some more speed to your lineup. Unless you feel confident with an outfielder that hits the wire hang on to what you have. Be patient (forgot to add that) and look for something in FA for the first few weeks of the season. I rarely make any moves in April. You could also drop Nady instead of EE. Don't think Nady is going to have the season he did last year. Or as was suggested earlier look to trade. I just don't think EE has a lot of trade value in an 11 team league.

Good luck
