you're leaning a little bit to much towards speed as opposed to power. and a lot of the homer run hitter guys you do have are a gamble (beltran, wright, jay bruce). you have A LOT of speed, try trading some of it for some more homers. your pitching staff is solid.

Agree. You have plenty of speed with Reynolds, Roberts (if healthy), Wright, Ichiro, and Everth Cabrera. So, not sure if you also need Bourn and Rajai Davis.

Reynolds, Cruz and Bruce's low averages are offset by Ichiro, Mauer, Roberts and Wright's avg, so you could afford to lose a little more in terms of avg to get a slugger. A little more power and you'll be good!

Agree that you might have too much speed, Remember that SB is only one category.

Calyton Kershaw is a guy I really would watch, I know he has potential, but that will dissapear if he continues to walk the ballpark.


I love David Wright to bounce back... Look at the guy career, there is no way that 09 was the real guy. He has a 389 career OBP and a 518 career slugging Pct... he'll be just fine.


I think Renolyds will have a fair amount of dropoff this year. His HR/FB rate was 26% last year, that is insanity, no way he sustains that...



Overall though I think you did a good job, your rotation is solid (aside from my Kershaw concerns). But yea, look for a guy that needs speed, trade with him and get some more hitters.
