Honestly? The team ain't good.

Woody Williams is old and might not repeat (my guess is he won't). Redman has been VERY shaky late last season. Burnett is coming off of surgery. Ryan Wagner? C'mon you can do better. Craig Wilson should be on a team. Griffey/Klesko/Kearns/Drew = All injury risks. You can definetly do better at catcher then Lecroy.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Don't worry - your team is not as bad as Zito is God thinks. Your offense is potent, just pray Griffey doesn't get hurt. If Griffey survives the season, you will have the best offense in the league and will contend in the hitting categories (HR, RBI, AVG.). LeCroy isn't that bad, its just that he's not one of the elite catchers. He can still hit 15 home runs for you.
Pitching wise, your team is OK. Prior and B.Wagner are great, but the rest of your staff isn't. First, Burnett may be out for the entire season this year, so that was a lost pick. Hoffman can be good, but he can also get injured. Wolf is all right, Redman is a big ?, although he may win 15 in Oakland. Woody is old (like 37) and declinin and I don't know where you got Ryan Wagner from. Try to swap R.Wagner for Dan Kolb of the Brewers or D.Marte of the White Sox in free agency.

This team needs some work, but it's not a bad start. Try and see if u can get some speed and/or a second tier starter for either Klesko, Drew, Kearns, Griffey or Palmeiro. There has to be someone in your league whose high on one of those guys. Trick is to find out who. I would drop Wilson and Wagner to pick up starting pitching. Just what I would do...

Your team isn't really that bad, IMO. Your starters beyond #1 and 2 are shaky, as is your bullpen beyond Billy Wagner. Try trading some bench hitters for some pitching. You also are badly in need of speed.
