Good offensive team-- it should easily compete well. Not a fan of your pitching though, as I don't see a big year out of Verlander. The good thing is that you have a lot of depth with your batters. I would def try to sell Hardy to a team in need of a decent SS for a SP or maybe even as RP, since 2 closers is prob not enough to win SV consistently every week. I also don't see the added benefit of keeping Davis, Gordon, and Pena on the same team and would consider moving one for more pitching depth.

I agree with the poster above me that your offense is pretty solid and your pitching needs some upgrade. Id look to trade some of your bench players like pena to try and solidify your pitching. If Oswalt gets hurt you might be completely SOL.

I agree with the above posters. If not a keeper, I think I would dangle Markakis or Martin to try and snag a higher-tier pitcher.

Yah I agree with what most people have been saying. I think that you should try and get a top tier SP. Other than that your teams looks solid. Very good offensively.

Your bench is deep and your offense is balanced. Bonifacio and Ells will get you over 100 steals. Perhaps you want to dump Teahen for a starter. Weaver and Verlander are shaky. Kazmir puts a ton of men on base and goes 5 innings. I think Floyd is pedestrian. His peripherals seem to show he got a little lucky last year. You might need a dependable starter and another closer. Maybe pick up a handcuff in the meantime.

Help?

I think you could go two ways 1.) package some of your bench players for a low end pitcher to help give you some depth and be on the look out for this years WW ace (Volquez, Lee, or Nolasco) or 2.) trade on of your starters to get a good quality pitcher. You could go either way.
