Not alot of speed but good offense, though I still ain't drinking the Zobrist Koolaid, and Molina could lose lots of time to Buster Posey this season, manny's decline last season worries me but the rest of the outfield should support as long as he doesn't go lower than .280 with 20hrs, myabe it's menopause.

The pitching starting wise is stellar, but the relievers are so so, with bailey the ace, and hoping he doesn't have a sophmore slump

Help with mine?

Yeah I know I didn't draft much speed and I don't draft for saves as i'm in the camp that they can always be picked up off of the waivers during the season. I banking on Manny playing for a contract next season. I'm crossing my fingers on Zobriest . If he delivers at least 80% of his stats from last year I'd be happy with that at 2B.Here's hoping!

Thanks for the help with mine. I agree you don't have a whole lot of speed, but you did extremely well in getting both Miggy & Kemp with your early pics. Kemp will be able to help with the lack of speed as well. Also, I think you can find some cheap speed later in the year off the ww or even trade for it if need be.

I think you have some nice core players and some good upside players as well. If some of the upside guys pan out, I think you got a good shot.
Your rotation is pretty sweet as well.

You could definitely use some help in the closer dept though...but as you mentioned, you should be able to puck some saves up of the ww throughout the year.

Overall, some holes, but a good squad.

Just updated my post as well, please take another look:

I like your team I'd look to the ww for steals in guys like pierre and podsednik. You have alot of nice power in your lineup. Also is keep an eye on the Toronto closer situation and the houston closer situation also I bet Octavio dotel is probably still on waivers so I'd watch those situations bc you can get some cheap saves there. Thank you for rAting my
team and good luck

Your lineup looks solid not too much speed in the lineup I'd worry about 3 things Bengie will probably lose playing time this year to Buster Posey but he's still good I think for at least 15-20 HRs, Manny's decine last year kind of worries me a little bit as well, the 3rd thing is Marco Scutaro, I have nothing against him at all I just worry with anyone that has a career year in their early-mid 30s.

The speed thing you can fix through waivers try seeing if Juan Pierre is available he could be a good option for steals if you need it.

I really like your pitching very solid closers you can find on waivers monitor the Toronto/Cleveland closing situations Kerry Wood has the closing job for now but he could possibly lose it. Picking up Chris Perez and stashing him on your roster could be a wise move to make.

Also monitor Joe Nathan's injury any pitcher that has an elbow or shoulder injury is of concern so monitoring who could get the saves if Nathan is out is worth watching.

Thanks for the help on mine.

What stands out to me is your rotation, quite a lineup of arms you got for you there.

As for the hitting it's ok but not great, keep your eye on the ww.
