I love your pitching.

As for hitting, I'm not a fan of Cabrera or Ramirez at SS, so maybe you could look to upgrade there.

Your weakness is homerun power. You very well could not have a single 30 homerun hitter on the entire team. That is, imo a problem. You are strong at speed though. Trade one of your speedesters (Maybe BJ Upton?) for a big bat. Besides that I like the team, pitching is in good shape.

I like your infield a lot, although I much prefer Alexei Ramirez to Cabrera. I think Ramirez is a good 20/20 candidate and the average will be solid. Cano I just love, his numbers may look flukish at first but when you factor in that new yankee stadium and how easy it is to hit home runs there for lefties then it makes sense and much more possible, if not probable for a repeat. Your team doesnt have that 1 big home run hitter like Prince Fieder or Ryan Howard but it does appear to have 20-30 HR power across the board for the most part. Ive tried that before and it didnt work for me but thats not saying it wont work for you. I would buy low on a sleeper power candidate now like Carlos Quentin if you could (not that hes a sleeper anymore but the asking price shouldnt be too high). I also like Rajai Davis on your bench, you should plug him in when one of your OF are slumping to make sure you get that SB threat you drafted him for.

The pitching looks solid Johnson and Cain are good to anchor a rotation. But Garza, Scherzer, Liriano, and Price all happen to be guys I am exremely high on this year (and im not sure which Chris Young that is but if its the pitcher I have him in a lot of leagues so that I can get the value he gives for his starts at petco park). You have 2 decent closers, but your pitching as a whole is very solid.


The team looks good, but I would add a slugger with 35-40 HR potential to be on the safe side.

Your starting pitching staff is your strong suit. You have balance on your team. You may not have a player that will hit you 30 homeruns but you have a bunch that will hit at least 25 and that is real valuable. I think your weakness is RP with Jenks. Please help me out

Thanks for your help on mine. I also agree with what the others have said. Is this a 10 team league or 12? Either way work on a package to get a power hitting 1b and then you'll be able to slide youk down to util or 3rd base. Maybe something involving Zimmerman?
