What type of league and what are the scoring areas

c. Chris Ianette- ;-D Decent pick good sleeper at catcher could go .280 20 hrs
1b. Adrian Gonzalez- ;-D
2b. Dan Uggla- :-? Not much in the way of average but will give you power
3b. Ryan Zimmerman- ;-) Could go .280-.290 20-25hrs
ss. Micheal Young- :-? Don't know if he is declining
0F. Justin Upton- :-) I don't know if this is his year
OF. Alex Rios- :-)
OF. Grady Sizemore- ;-D Great pick there

UTIL/BENCH. Chris Davis, Jorge Cantu, Iwamura, Franceur, yadier Molina- Davis has 30hr potential who know on avg, Cantu might be okay at 1B, Francoeur will rebound this year, Iwamura id good to spell Uggla when you need a average boost, Molina is a odd amn out here

OFFENSE OVERALL: B could use slightly more speed, but otehrwise good

sp. Lincecum- :-) Looked bad first start of the year
sp. Josh Becket - ;-D
rp.Jonathan Papelbon- ;-D ;-D
rp. Brian Wilson- :-)
p. Fransisco Liriano- ;-D could be the sleeper CY Young this year
p. Clayton Kershaw- :-) great potential but could be rough this year
p. Bronson Aroyo- :-t there is better options
p. Saito- :-? unless your league counts holds you don't need him

PITCHING OVERALL: B- I would drop Arroyo and Saito and grab Kuroda and Maholm, both will help with ERA and WHIP, and post respectable K's

Help with mine?

hey, welcome to the cafe.

that looks like a well drafted team; very well rounded and no glaring weaknesses.

i'd play cantu for zimmerman right now. and i agree with Padres Fan, you can find better replacements for molina and arroyo in a 12 team league of your size. maholm would be great but if your friends know half their stuff he'd be long gone. browse around the forum for some excellent under-the-radar guys. having someone like saito is only good for holds leagues or as a stopgap for when your ratios are suffering. you might be able to let him go, too.

nicely done, hope you enjoy the season ;-D
