This is a fourteen team 5x5 rotisserie league

C Kurt Suzuki
1B Kevin Youklis
2B Gordon Beckham
SS Alexei Ramirez
3B Martin Prado
OF Carlos Gonzalez
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Bobby Abreu
Util Howie Kendrick
Util Angel Pagan
Bench Placido Palanco
Bench Ty Wiggington

My feeling I have a very balanced lineup for a 14 team league. I may be a bit short on power but every guy I have can and should hit double digit homeruns. I am heavy in steals, runs, and avg. Home Runs and RBIs might be the only issue but I feel pretty good. Am I wrong?

SP Ubaldo Jimenez
SP Matt Cain
SP Phil Hughes
SP Jamie Garcia
SP Jordon Zimmerman
RP Andrew Bailey
RP JJ Putz
RP Kuo

My feeling on my staff is my fourth and fith starters are iffy but I can fill that with a WW pickup as season progresses. I will struggle in saves. I think Ill have to make a move there or hope I get lucky on the WW with a closer in waiting. Thoughts?

Please leave a link and Ill be happy to respond

Thanks,

RY

Damn, pretty well rounded team for a 14-team league.. perhaps look for some HR help on the bench...

Thanks for helping with my team. I agree with your assessment that you're light on power. Though you do have some excess speed you could trade. I like your relief staff, but watch out for Bailey due to injury risk.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray

This is a great team for a 14 team league. As you mentioned light on power. I would have to say VERY light on power. I don't think Cargo will put up even close what he did last year which gives you Youk's power and that's about it. I would really consider looking for a power guy.

RP can be phenomenal or it will fall out the bottom because Putz and Bailey are injury concerns and Kuo doesn't have a closing gig.

Thanks for the help with mine.
