I don't trust Weeks. I think Michael Young is a little overrated too. But, I'm a big Chipper fan and you'll have a pretty awesome addition to your lineup by the end of the month. ;-D I assume he'll slide into the Utility spot or 3B. I'm guessing Chipper isn't OF eligible anymore. You might want to consider trading one of those 3B for a top middle infielder assuming A-Rod's playing well when he comes back. You also have some good pitching depth on the bench that you could trade. Also, you could probably do better than Ibanez or Milledge in a 10-team league.

Overall its a pretty good team. My biggest concern is you've got a lot of injury risks and not much depth to cover them (Posada, Weeks, Chipper, A Rod). You've got a lot of pitching depth, I'd try and upgrade my OF/U spots a bit before A Rod comes back and you'll be just that much stronger when he does.

Please help

I like it overall, but more than a few guys worry me.

Weeks, Chipster, Posada, Jenks, Lindstrom all scare me a bit. But if even half of them work out you should do really well.

I concur with the last poster, nice team, but you are stocked with injury risks. I'm not so concerned with Posada, even if he gets injured there are other catchers you could pick up from the WW that would be sufficient. I think A-Rod will return and be fine, as long as the Yankees don't rush him back too early. Chipper is terrific he can stay healthy, at his advanced age the chances of him remaining healthy for an entire season are slim. Also, I am not a fan of Ricki Weeks, so I might look to make a move there if possible. Overall you are going to need lots of luck this season and just pray that your guys can remaine healthy.

Isn't that what fantasy is though? A lot of luck? If weeks can stay healthy he def has the chance to be a 20/20 guy. Ya right now I'm trying to put Chipper and a Pitcher to get Cabrera

K not too bad although there are some guys who worry me a little. The bad things first: I don't have too much confidence in Ricki Weeks, Michael Young, or Vladamir Guerrero. I think Michael Young is overrated like that other guy said because he jsut doesn't produce high enough stats. Vlad is getting old and I believe his numbers will drop. The good things: I think I speak for almost everyone when I say Albert Pujols should have another fabulous year so that's good. Nice job on getting A-Rod because i think he will do fine and produce great numbers when he gets back. You also have fantastic pitching! Chris Carpenter might be a bit of a sleeper although i obviously don't think he'll be able to do what he did a couple years ago. Josh Beckett will have a better year than last year and CC is CC. Three solid closers! You might want a little more speed but other than that it looks pretty solid overall! Good luck!
