Hello,

The offense is BIG, but it seems like it may be a bit slow. If you find yourself falling behind in SBs, try to trade off some power to get a 10-team starter worthy guy that can contribute some speed. That said, I'm not saying that you WILL fall behind in SBs; If Raffy returns to form (likely), you may actually be sitting pretty. Simply monitor your position, that's all!

The pitching is nice, here's to a healthy Santana when he returns. All I could suggest here is that you watch your 6-7 pitchers as well as waiver pitchers around the league and try to find a guy that you could firmly establish as a 6th starter (Your top 5 is solid). You'll need the innings. Jimenez can give you good value at 6 if he gets some sort of control, and Volstad has had a solid spring. Just keep your eye open and look around for those diamonds in the rough.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the suggestions, Frappy. It's very helpful.

I do need to add speed but that would sacrifice other categories. 5-tool players are only a few and come with high price tags. Hopefully, my 6th and 7th pitchers can make a difference. Good luck on your season.
