The offense looks solid - the pitching kinda looks like mine, with a bunch of possible good seasons, Max will miss about 2 weeks & who know when they'll bring Price back up from the minors. The pen should hold up, I'm not a big fan of Gonzalez but he could be solid, and hopefully Motte too. Lots of upside.

The offense looks great, the pitching, not so much. There is some decent potential and upside in your rotation, but the offense/pitching spending differential is painfully obvious.
I would try trade Hamilton or Lee for a #1+.
And I think these three guys are worth more now then they will be at the end of the season.

I'd try to trade on their names right now and pick up ww guys with similar upside. There seems to be plenty out there this year.
Good luck with the 5K!!!

Help if you can

Very well rounded offense to start. Three first round quality bats in Hamilton,Ramirez, and Texiera. Beyond that your pitching staff has alot of question marks but has a good amount of upside. Verlander had a great start to spring though he did get shelled against Atlanta today. Obviously the big question will be David Price and how long he is the minors if he doesn't see an early callup to the rotation that could put a big hurt on your staff.

Predominantly I see your team as a high risk and high reward situation. If your pitching staff pans out you can win the league. If the staff is mediocre youll still be in the top half but winning it all will be an extremely tough battle. Watch out for good match up plays and guys in setup roles for now and you should be able to get enough help through the season.

Do you have a bench or do you start everyone on your roster? DL spots? The latter because you have a number of injury risks on your roster.

The O looks good and minor tinkering through the season will keep u on top. I like Spilbourgs but Fowler made the team and he may get more AB than Spilly.
The pitching needs some consistency (Derek Lowe??) so you can afford to wait on Price.
