What I really like is that you handcuffed Rivera with Soriano. I don't know why more Rivera owners haven't done so, it's a no brainer. I think you may be susceptible at SP because after King Felix it drops off significantly. Also, as much as I think the Yankees are a great team I'm not sure I'd want 3 of their starters. I think a key for your pitching is if Shields returns to past form.
Having two dominant closers like Rivera and Bell must feel assuring. Too many of the rosters I have seen here have serious ? marks at RP.
Yeah, I had Posey as my catcher, but picked up Wieters late. Not a big deal - I can always slide Cuddyer over or if LaPorta or Jake Fox take off they can be slotted in there.
I do think my starting pitching does show a drop-off after Felix, so I have to hope some of those mid-level guys contribute more than they should. By the time I got to picking Burnett and Nova it was basically a spread of 20 other guys with the same stuff, so I figured why not take a few hometown players.
Soriano could even contribute to Ks, WHIp and ERA in a pinch even if he is only the 8th inning guy - he'll get a lot of chances.
