Overall it looks solid.

That said, there are some spots that you will want to watch closely for possible upgrades early on -

Catcher - Posada is better as a backup at this point (I actually drafted him in 20th round as my backup) but I'd feel nervous if he was my primary catcher

SS - Peralta is having a very mediocre spring to go with a mediocre 2010. This spot should be upgraded ASAP early in the year. Is Omar Infante available? I like him better

Berkman - wasn't even drafted in our league. Keep an eye on for possible upgrade

Saves may be a problem for awhile but that's the easiest thing to fix. Watch for Francisco to go on DL and maybe get Rauch or Contreras if available as fill in for now

Not a big Floyd fan but I'm probably biased after drafting him in 2010 after a hot spring and then being a flop

Good luck!

Keep an eye on your bullpen. Not sure what Bailey's status will be and Lyon may not hold that job all season. I like the power/speed mix in the outfield.

Your OF is nice! Nice mix of power and speed. As for the bullpen, I think you need to upgrade. Like another poster said, Lyon won't have the job all year long.

I don't like your SS. See if any upgrades are possible.

I'd be interested to see what you paid for these players. Is it a keeper league? Do you have an in-season cap?

I could possibly trade for stephen drew, having to give up haren. Good deal? It isn't a keeper league, and not sure what you mean on season cap. Here are the values.

Posada 1
Teixeria 45
Pedroia 32
Peralta 1
Reynolds 8
Cruz 28
Bruce 18
Rasmus 19
Victorino 9
Ellsbury 16
Berkman 1

Hamels 21
Verlander 25
Haren 17
Bailey 3
Francisco 2
Nunez 3
lyon 2
League 1
Anderson 4
