Wow, that's a very solid squad. Clearly OF is the biggest question but I think you have enough depth to ride the hot bat (or bench a cold one). Pitching is deep, I'm not a big Dice-K guy so I may look to see the best available (any quality infield bats around JIC?)
I really like this team. I think you have good depth even in a smaller league. I think you have the combination of power and speed to do well in the batting cats. I also think you have some solid starters. Though my concern is that in a 10 team league h2h you will run into pitching staff that are better occasionally, but other weeks you will have the better staff. I think this squad has the talent to consistently win every week and should easily make the playoffs.
I would add a third closer, if you see the chance.

10 Team H2H Keeper League with Standard 5X5 Scoring - We Keep 8 guys each year
C Brian McCann 1B Ryan Howard 2B Chase Utley SS Hanley Ramirez 3B Mark Reynolds OF Nelson Cruz OF Carlos Gonzalez OF Alex Rios UTL Billy Butler BN Denard Span BN Garrett Jones
SP Jon Lester SP Cole Hamels SP Ubaldo Jimenez SP Chad Billingsley SP Roy Oswalt RP Joakim Soria RP Andrew Bailey BN Brian Matusz BN Mat Latos BN Dice-K
I think this is a great team. Is this league first year? Couldn't believe you could get Hanley, Utley and Howard in the same year. I like Gonzalez, wanted to get him in my league but was someone took him the RD I was going to get him. Like the pitchers, though I agree with another post about picking up a 3rd closer and I'm not a big fan of Dice-K either. Nice job, would love to trade teams.
Thanks for the replies everyone. Actually this is a keeper league thats been going on for about 7 years. You guys are right on about the OF being suspect and the pitching being good but not the best in the league. There are some guys that keep 4 pitchers (something I wouldn't do) so they will usually have 4 very good aces against you.
Best OF's available are Coghlan, Rajai Davis, Johnny Damon, Magglio, Reimold, DeRosa, V Wells, Rasmus. I'm thinking of dropping Latos for Rajai Davis because like I said, Latos innings are too limited to help me this year I think.
10 Team H2H Yahoo Keeper League - Standard 5X5 Scoring 8 keepers. Haven't drafted yet.
Keepers Brian McCann, Albert Pujols, Chase Utley, Hanley Ramirez, Nelson Cruz, Ryan Howard, Jon Lester, Cole Hamels
Wow. Great team. IMO there is nothing wrong with your SP. Ubaldo is going to be a legit Cy contender. Your OF has all the potential in the world, but none of them have put up consisitent numbers (yet). Adding an OF with some track record could help solidify this position. BUt, your IF/C are all studs, so you should be a ble to ride out any valleys your outfielders run into.
