If Cliff Lee were my ace, I'd be worried. I'd drop either Hanson or Price - neither of those guys are going to help any time soon and taking up valuable roster spots as you fall further behind in the pitching categories. You don't have a lot of tradeable pieces, so you might just be counting the days until ARod comes back to help your offense and hoping Davis and Ortiz can get going.

I wouldn't go into total "panic mode," just yet but keep a careful eye on things. Once A-Rod comes back that will obviously help you out a lot, but I mean who knows what Chris Davis, Theriot, or Inge will do, its a total crap shoot. You have pretty decent guys in the outfield, and Ortiz should do fine. The pitching is shaky at best, as the previous poster mentioned "if Cliff Lee were my ace I'd be worried," I feel the same way. However I like Pettitte and Danks and I think Wang will turn things around. To sure things up you should trade a hitter for an established starter asap. Your second closer spot is weak as well, Percival/Hoffman %-6 .

Ouch, yeah. I bet you have your calendar set waiting for A-Rod to come :-o

I am pretty sure you can find someone to help your pitching on the WW, so I would probably drop either Hanson or Price as well (as previously said). They are taking space in your team and you need pitching, since I really don't think Cliff Lee will replicate last year's numbers.
Your OF is fine, your infield is good enough (Davis is pretty much killed some teams on their first week) and you really need some help on the pitching :-o
