2B/SS Gordon Beckham
1B/3B James Loney

I appreciate any responses. I'm definitely down with rating some of your teams in return. Thanks!

I really like your team - Awesome infield! The only question is James Loney. Is there anyone better available on the wire? You could slot Davis into the 1B/3B position and put the WW addition into the Util slot.

Nice pitching staff. I like that you have Romero.. he's a great breakout candidate!

Mind taking a look?

My My, I like your team a lot. You've got a nice selection of dependable players and several players I suspect could have great breakout seasons.

If I would suggest an upgrade on anything, I'd think 1B. I don't know about your draft, but I noticed a large number of them available late in the draft that had good upsides. I would think that if you can't find one on the WW that people would have extra to trade? Perhaps you could lure someone into a trade if you have extra at a position they need. Perhaps one of your mid range OF?

Other than that, I don't see anything I could knock, so I'd say good stuff. ;-D

Really nice team overall, I notice you have a lot of RPs 5 to be exact and 4 of them are closers, the only RP non-closer is Chapman so I would explore options of maybe getting rid of 1 or 2 RPs and and gaining another SP. Could try to throw in an OF along with a RP to maybe gain a better starting pitcher. Other then that you have a great team.

You could use another good OF besides Choo and Young. I'd look at packaging some of you lesser players and relief pitchers for a guy like Jay Bruce. Other than that it is a very good team.

Mind taking a look at mine?

I really like this team. Very balanced between Pitching and offense. Hopefully Chris Young repeats what he did last year. I agree that upgrading Loney would probably be my first order of business. Love the pitching staff, alot of guys with huge upside.

What do you think?

I like the balance in your team. The weakest part would prob be your outfield.

Ricky Romero on your bench stands out to me, his value in a H2H league could get you a nice OF bat. Maybe make a trade with someone looking to upgrade in SP, and package pagan/Romero for a better OF/weaker arm.
