Your team may struggle in the first half, but will do much better in the 2nd half. Berkman and CLee are on the DL to start the season. LaRoche is historically better after the ASB.

Aside from that, however, your team is not bad at all. While your offense could use an additional power bat, Utley, Crawford and Werth are good, solid players. Your SP's have a lot of upside. A staff of Wainwright-Lee-Jurrjens-Buehrle-Nolasco as well as Sheets could be scary come September. Rivera is still a stud and Qualls is decent in the pen.

While April could be an interesting month for your team, I feel you will do fine. Try to trade a SP (Jurrjens, Sheets if someone is high on him perhaps) for a power bat.

You did alright except in the power department. I'd drop Jackson to try to find someone available with 30+ HR potential. Glaus is still available in many leagues, for instance.

Negatives
I think you will struggle mightily in the power dept.
I believe Furcal is a risk at SS
Figgins offensive value takes a hit moving from LAA to SEA
Berkman and Lee are on the DL to start the season, not a good sign.

Positives
Nolasco will prove to be one of the top pitchers in the NL this season
Speed - Crawford,Figgins,Martin
You can never go wrong having Rivera, the best closer of all time. But Qualls is a risk.

Overall: I can't see this team finishing higher than 6th in a 12 team league. Rating - 6.4/10
