Thanks for help with mine. Sorry that it took awhile for me to post back!

Your team has a nice core of solid sluggers. The bottom end of your outfield and the bench has some questions ... namely Markakis and Lee. I would want a younger/upside guy with some SPEED potential. There are the usual cheap OF like Borbon, Nyjer Morgan, Carlos Gomez (now teammates/platoon?? with Morgan).

But a guy who's once again a little under the radar is Michael Brantley. The dude is FAST and could even rack up decent average/runs scored for you; a three category guy going for around $1/hidden on waiver wire = killer value. He's worth a look ... Cleveland has a new chief in town (haha) and hopefully they let the kid get a chance to find his rhythm rather that jerking him around all season.

Another waiver 'fodder' guy I like is Alexi Casilla. He should be manning SS for the Twins and should carry over 2B eligibility. He's fast ... decent bat ... could easily hit in the 260s, steal 25+ bags, and score 60+ runs. It's always nice to have a little MI on the bench.

If you don't want to part with one of your upside guys in a trade for an Alex Rios or a Juan Pierre etc. ... then I would scour waivers for a sleeper.

I'm not a big fan of punting categories - I never understood that strategy much. Your starting pitching is obviously deep, but it doesn't do much good to murder people in 3 categories and forget others. You'll likely suffer more with ERA and WHIP using this strategy as well - mixing in a few solid closers will help that.

Otherwise I like your squad - I think matt Kemp has a big year.

Help me out?

I really like this team, and I do believe it can win it all, but you know how much luck is a factor in H2H. A minor blemish on the roster is Lee, but I think the first time you encounter a player on the wire you want, he is the first one gone so what does that matter. Help with mine?

You're offense is going to be knocking the cover off the ball this year with fielder/kemp/cano/zimmerman all 4 of those guys are going to come up big this year in my opinion. I like kemp especially to have a career year. Your pitching staff is exellent as well, i like zambrano to have a bounce back year.
