very nice looking pitching, but a little weak on offensive, especially in 2B, 1B, and SS. Although you have a really impressive outfield. I would give it a 7

Great starting pitching! Riske may be a little risky. You are going to hurt on saves a little. You may want to try and pick up a middle relief pitcher like Lidge, K-Rod, Mota, Donnelly, Marte, Valverde or Soriano. Most of these guys wont be available but some may be. They may be a better option than Riske, but I think Risk may be just as good if he can keep the closer spot.

I think that you will play Young at 2b instead of Kennedy, but just see how they perform in the season. Hopefully Hidalgo keeps improving and has a moster year. Overall a good team. I give it a 6.5 You may want to trade away some pitching to get more power in the infield. If you got a little more power(probably at 1b) then I would give you a 7.5

i think riske just might hold onto the job all season, but even so I'd want one more closer for some added saves.....throw a guy like maddox out there who probably has more name value than he should and see if you can snag a 2nd tier closer.

GREAT pitching, middle of the road offense. 8.5 for pitching (because a better closer would probably help you a lot), 5.5 for the offense. Your 1B and 2B are really below average, and your OF is really good, but not GREAT. You can definitely win with the OF, though, provided that you fix up the right side of your infield.

Your starting pitching is so strong and deep, I don't think there's any question you need to deal one of your starters for a 1B who can give you a lot more than Millar will. I don't know what scoring categories you have in the league, but there are SO many 1B out there who will give you better return than Millar. Plus, if you are willing to deal one of your better starters (Oswalt, maybe) in a deal, you might be able to get one of the real top 1B - Pujols, Helton, Thome, etc. If you want to deal a lesser pitcher, that's fine too - Frank Thomas, David Ortiz, Aubry Huff should all be available for Maddux+change at worst.

Whoops... got your rotation confused for a second with someone elses. I meant to say Colon instead of Oswalt.

I would start Young at second, he should be better than Kennedy. I might try trading a starter (maybe MAddux or Zambrano) for a better 1b.

thanks again for the great comments. I think I'm gonna try to trade either santana or colon + millar for Delagado? Does that trade work?
I also thought about starting M. Young as a starter but I'm worried that M.Young won't get to play much becuz of Alfonso. Please let me know if there is a better trading I could do.
