Manny Parra for a closer or a handcuff possibly? I never have been a fan. You 've got some lineup and when Upton comes back it's that much better. With Lackey and Santana back healthy hopefully you are in line to repeat. I guess a catcher that plays full time would help. Other than that no problems there.

Offense-catching is iffy with Napoli injured, and Mathis playing hot (mathis is a better deffensive catcher as well) and unless he gets time at 1B I see maybe 250 at bats from him, Infield is top notch nice power and a spalsh of speed.. I like your Outfield and think Jones is a great breakout candidate

Pitching-Your SP is really tricky, hopefully Hamels' arm issues doesnt flare back up, Kazmir is a injury concern, and the rest play for mediocre teams so their stats may be iffy, I would drop Duch, Parra, Villenueva for more established starters, and maybe try to trade BJ Ryan early since he is having velocity issues this season.

help with mine?

Good team without a doubt, if Napoli gets the nod as full time catcher he will put up really good numbers. You have a great outfield as well, I think your team is really solid and should do extremely well this season, another championship is insight!

That team looks pretty solid, although Padres Fan and WrightStuff pretty much summed my worries with your SP and C.

Overall, super solid team.
