You might try to ship Vernon Wells and BJ Ryan for a big OF bat or a bigtime closer ... I hear bad things about Ryan's velocity and I worry that Wells is going to have a Griffey-esque adjustment to turning 30 ... i.e. the injuries.

Otherwise your team has a nice makeup all around.

Echo the vernon Wells/ BJ Ryan Sentiment.

I'm not so sure about Volquez this season... he had a pretty putrid second half... it seems like hitters are figuring him out... he could be the Reds answer to John Maine in a few years..

Keep an eye on Garret Atkins too, returning from injury.

I'm not the biggest victirino guy in the world... but hes decent enough... he'll score runs on that team, steal bases, hit some homeruns... not bad.

other then that... seems like a pretty well rounded club. good luck

help me with mine?

Good call on the Wells/Ryan thing, I was actually worried about the two of them.

As for Volquez, I'm hoping for around 85 - 90% of what he was last year and I'll take that as a victory. I drafted purely on K's as I hope the rest works out.

I believe that you have plenty of offense and like others I would trade BJ Ryan to a homer or someone who has no closers.. The other day he could only mustard 85mph, thats going to get ripped when the season starts unless he get Moyer's help.

Wells on the other hand is a keeper, he is going to have outstanding year this season and is going to surprise a lot of folks. Delmon Young and Nelson Cruz have huge upside and if the trigger you team will take off also...

You pitching looks good the only thing i advice is to trade BJ and a bat for a stuf RP or pitcher... You can pick Helton for the bat you give up and he is going to get you plenty of double bagers and hits...

Hope this helped..
