Championship team or bust? WHIR

Hey guys,

This is the second year of my 10-team 5x5 h2h dynasty league (40 man rosters) and we just drafted yesterday. How does my team look - is it a championship caliber team? Are there any glaring weaknesses?

Team looks pretty solid. You have a decent amount of risk, but really thats what it takes to win in 10 team leagues. You need some upside players to put you over the top, and you got them in Alvarez, Espinosa and a few of your pitcher. I'm a bit concerned if Espinosa doesn't pan out, because Aviles is kinda "bleh", and considering the large roster size, you most likely wont have WW options.

I'm sure a handful of teams look good, but overall this team should be very competitive.
Good luck in 2011.

Don't really see anything to indicate you don't have a championship contender here. Sure you have project players with lots of upside and perhaps lots of downside as well but who doesn't? Especially with a 40 man roster. I really like Beachy as a possible sleeper. If he can beat out Minor for that last spot in the rotation hes got to be damn good. I liked minor a lot. I also like bedard as long as he's healthy which may not be long but he should be of value until that almost inevitable time comes. The rest of your pitching for the most part is very nice looking.
