I'm not sure if there are any glaring weaknesses in the team below or not. Thought I would run it past you guys.

Thank you,
Mike

I like this team a lot, but you could definitely use some help in the OF. You might want to take a flier on a guy like Emilio Bonifacio to provide some versatility and insurance at the middle infield. Your pitching is strong as well. Of course, this all depends on the number of people in the league. If this is a 10 man league, it's a 8.5/10 team. If it's an 8 man league 7.25/10.

Pitching staff has good depth and is filled with stars. Your weakness is the depth on the offensive side. You have a lot of mediocre of's. Depending on the size of the league and scoring of your league, I would expect you to contend with this team easily.

Great pitching, mediocre hitting. As another poster mentioned your IF could use some work. I'm not sure if Sanchez-Zimmerman will benefit your team over the course of a full season. Also, you are going to need Stephen Drew to replicate or improve on his numbers from last season which is a question mark. I like Cantu a lot and I think over a full season he should put up solid numbers, I might also look to trade him for an upgrade at 2nd or 3rd.

I appreciate all your feedback. This is my first MLB fantasy team and it's doing okay so far. We have 10 people in the league but many don't pay attention.

So the outfielders (or OF?) could be the problem? I'll double check those players. I noticed a lot of low batting averages there but wasn't sure if that was priority #1. :)

Beltran is just fine, he's the guy to have on OF, having been consistent for the past few seasons, but I would try to replace one of the other two (I hate Abreu).

Aside from that, the team looks great, just improve on OF and maybe on 2B since I don't think Freddy Sanchez will keep his production up for all season (although if he keeps up, he might win the batting title again)

You have a nice set of power hitters.

Also the pitching staff looks really good.

Brandon Inge, Det C, 3B
Albert Pujols, StL 1B
Freddy Sanchez, Pit 2B
Jorge Cantu, Fla 1B, 3B  DTD
David Eckstein, SD 2B, SS
Kosuke Fukudome, ChC OF
Jordan Schafer, Atl OF
Carlos Beltran, NYM OF
Shin-Soo Choo, Cle OF
Orlando Hudson, LAD 2B

I went ahead and tried to tighten up my power hitters in the OF and I'm really liking the team now. Thanks again for all your help. Now if my pitching guys stay on the mound I think we'll be in for a great season. Good luck to all of you as well!
