Offence: You're team is solid, but not great in my opinion. You have a lot of guys on your offense that I feel have yet to live up to all of their hype. It's all about your take though. I go for the safe guys. In my opinion your only safe bats are Kinsler (although he is an injury risk), Rollins (as safe as anybody), Dunn (perennial lock for 40 HR/100 RBI), and Crawford (although he has let me down in past year). Crawford I like this year because he is going to bat in front of huge bats (Burrell and Pena). I think we all expect Chris Davis to have a great year, but he still young. What I like about your offense is most of your guys are multi-dimensional (minus Dunn).
Pitching: Your pitching is what scares me. I feel that you have a lot of risky guys (Bedard, Volquez, Carmona, and Escobar). I see your in a hold league, which opens the option for you to stack on set up guys and guarantee yourself a win in the category every week. I like that strategy because of the it can also boost up your win totals for the week.
Overall, I would say that you did a mediocre job of drafting, you have some room for improvement, but I really think you can make it to the playoffs with some wise waiver pick ups or some craft trades. As a number grade, I'm going to give you a 75/100.
Hope that helps

I agree that your pitching could be great, or could also be terrible. Carmona, at times, has huge control issues; Bedard is an injury risk, plus no help from the O in Seattle. You should normally win holds because of Okajima and Perez as they are rock solid leftys for their teams.

Maybe wait to see if Sandoval or Votto get out to a fast start and put a deal together to solidify the pitching.

Offense is around a B (higher if they live up to their potential)
Pitching is around a C (higher if they can keep their arms on their shoulders and the ball down in the zones)

Overall C+/B-
