Honestly, I don't think so. You seem to be relying on a lot of young talent. You'd need 4 or 5 of those guys to reach their top-end projections for you to stay competitive. You seem to be weak in stolen bases, middle of the pack in homeruns, and starting pitching isn't anything to write home about. Soon you'll be topheavy at catcher, so look to eventually deal one of your big guns away. If weiters comes up and you look to be competitive this season, I'd try to move him for a big arm. If he comes up and the season's looking bleak, you def have some strong starts to next season.

Wish this review could've been more rosy-colored.

I think it's a decent team, but I agree that in a 12 team league I don't see this as playoff calibre. You seem to have a lot of middle of the road starters, so you need a couple more big arms in your rotation this year.

Sorry my bad didnt update my word pad, I dealt Wieters for Garza that should be Case Blake on the bench.

I figure I won't compete this year, and this was my first auction draft, and had a $260 dollar cap. i over paid for Miggy ($42), Upton ($25) and Mauer ($14), and went frugal the rest of the way. we do get to keep 8 keepers but their value will be at $5 higher than what they were auctioned at draft, so Miggy will probably not be on my Keepers list at the end of the season.

well I jumped on Mauers and Wieters in my first 5 picks then slowed down and realized what I was doing. Picked up Suzuki as ameans to trade Mauer, but generated no buzz for him, and someone offered Garza and and navarro for him so I figured why not since I have a catcher backlog. I fugure Suzuki and Navvaro will hold the fort until Mauer is better, Suzuki seems to be the Iron Man of catchers so I can Drop or Trade Navarro to fill a hole. also in my Minor League Draft I did pick JP Arencibia as a back up plan
