One thing that stands out is the weakness of your starters after your top two. Garza, Danks, and Floyd with Santana and Slowey on the bench will only provide so much potential upside. For a ten team league, your starters are a glaring weakness.

Offensive players look good if not overpowering, but ya got some speed to burn! Pitching looks so so. I like Carpenter(hope he holds up) and Johnson is very good. The rest of SPs are banking on potential. If half of them deliver you'll be in good shape! Good luck this season!

I tend to overpick on pitchers in other drafts and my offense suffers, I feel I have some bats to trade for later, this is a offense heavy league, and I feel I needed decent ERA/WHIP pitchers since those are the hardest stats to make up and went with pitchers in decent ptchers parks and who did well in previous seasons in those stats, I pass Ubaldo Jimenez for 5 picks, (Coors fieled pitchers still scare me)

Well one thing about an overpowering offense is that you will likely win 4-5 categories a week just from that. Remember, all it takes to win each week is going 6-4. Your pitching is your weak spot, but any of your later picked pitchers could have a great season.

I feel my SP are due for breakouts,Santana seems to be goo every other year so I look to be on the good year,, Carpenter and Johnson are studs but could be fragile, but I look steady and my Closers look top notch imo

That is one heck of a lineup.

I do not mind your second base all that much. I think Palanco will be a run machine in philly now.
Like others have said, pitching is your weak point, but it really is not that bad either, and it always seems easier to pick up pitching than hitting. You should be fine.
Not in love with the Sizemore pick, but that is just me.
