For not knowing 75% of of the players you picked you did pretty well.

C-McCann-best catcher in the game and is in the best shape of his career
1B-Votto- entering his second year, going to be great possible .300/30/100/100 for this year
2B-Kinsler-great player, is a little injury prone. has not had a year w/o a DL stint.
SS-Furcal-was great before he got injured last year, will probably pick up where he left off last year
3B-Logoria- good player probably will be at .280/35/100/100 for the year
OF-Kemp- great player, who will break out this year and be a 30/30 player.
Shin Soo Choo- had a great second half, great player from korea, could be a strong break out player
Taveres- steal machine last season 68 SB
Drew- already injured and is going to be on the DL a lot last year
DH/UTL-Huff-had a great year last year, probably will be down a little this year, but still good. .280/30/90/90
Thome-was down last year, probably will have a better average, but a lock to get 30+ HRs
SP-Nolasco- great last year on the marlins, probably continue into this year
Dempster-great last year, will probably be a little down this year but still good
Lee-see dempster
Carmona-injured last year probably have a bounce back year
Pelfrey-decent pitcher, on a team with some great O in the mets
Maholm-good pitcher, with a great fast ball (thats about the only pitch) on a crap team in the pirates
Jurrjens-good last season, and IMO a steal for a round 20 pick.
RP-Wood-good RP who has a secure job when healthy
Jenks-another good one, will not strike out many, but will get you a good amoutn of saves
Hoffman-older know, but still decent when healthy.

I like your team. You have some good talent overall. I really like your whole infield, but your OF is a little lacking over all. Kemp and Soo Choo are good, but Im not a fan of drew or taveres.

I think you have a pretty nice team. I especially like the Matt Kemp pick, he is going to be awesome this year! Your hitting is fine, but I think you could improve your starting pitching. Nalasco and Carmona are solid, but after them it takes a downturn, I don't think Cliff Lee or Dempster will put up great numbers (as the other poster mentioned I definately see them taking a step back this year,) and who knows about Pelfrey, Maholm, and Jurjjens. I might try and trade Huff or Votto for a guy like Adam Wainwright.

I think its actually your OF that needs an extra player.

I would try to offer hoffman and drew for another OF, maybe a younger player who is a risk like Dukes. He has talent but its hard to play ball when your in jail. If he can stay out of trouble this season he will have 20+ HRs and 30 steals. Maybe even Maybin for the Marlins or Jones for the Os.

If you have to offer one of your other RPs, but go after a better OF then the ones i suggested. Dont worry about getting rid of one of your better RPs though. RPs always come out of the wood work during the season. There are only about 10 RPs who have a solid hold on the Closer role. For example Chris Ray is a set up man, but may end up taking the closer role from Sherrill before the beginning of the season.
