Looks good. I'd say weaknesses are SS (not a big fan of Kalil), SBs, SP and RP. You look very strong in HRs and RBIs.

I have since dropped Samardzjia for Ryan Franklin and Chad Tracy for Pavano.

Any follow up thoughts?

Your pitching could pretty outstanding as long and Webb holds up, and should get you by even if he doesn't. You're counting on big years from a couple of guys, but if Greinke has the career year people are predicting and if Harang bounces back, you should be golden.

I'm not as in love with your hitting, though. Huff played a bit above his head last year. He won't be a liability, but I don't see him being a stud. We'll have to see how steep Abreu's decline is. And I'm not on the Andrus hype train yet, but I'm willing to be proven wrong.

It looks pretty good overall, and hopefully the players who need to pan out will. Good luck, and thanks for the help on mine.

I like Greene! LaRussa always gets the best out of veterans and he is going to strive outside of that cave in SD. Your team is very balanced and I like the Franklin pickup. Motte will be on a short leash.

Help?
