Excellent team and great pitching ! You should do well in your league with that team, not to worry about SS though it is soooo thin of a position and other than the top 2 your geting about the same production. The rest of your team will hide the SS, kind of like how my team is set up, weak at a few positions to be really strong at some key ones.
Good Luck this season !!!
Take a peak at my team and let me know what you think.
Nice overall team. I think pitching is your strength with verlander, kershaw, hamels, and marcum. thats gonna be pretty tough to beat. may need to grab a (ss) later through a trade or whatever, but you will just have to see how it goes.
Team is looking pretty tight! As others said you could use an upgrade as SS. I'm not too hot on C. Lee. Perhaps see if his multi-position eligibility can help you by trying to deal him early for a shortstop?

<Interesting, probably Top 30, maybe Top 15
I would find a "homer" for Kershaw, Hamels, or Verlander and package someone with who is chosen to help other positions, you really do not need all three of them at all and desperately need help in the OF as well as other places. I think Hellickson ends up helping more than you think.
