Personally, I think you're really solid all around. I don't have any queefs with your team at all.

I think the team looks really good. I'm expecting big things from LeCroy this season (big for a catcher anyways), although be ready to find another option just in case. Jason Phillips is currently my backup.
Infield looks really good, although I'm not a Furcal fan with Sheff and Lopez gone. He certainly won't score 130 runs again. He only hit 2 HRs after the break, so I'd expect his HR total to go back to his norm (8-10). I expect his AVG and RBIs to decrease too. Still, he's not a terrible option, and with your IF, I don't think you can complain too much. I'd keep a lookout for SS sleepers though.
OF looks good, especially if Green bounces back. I assume you got him with a fairly low pick, and I think he's a good value. If he started stealing 20+ bases again, that'd be huge. Rocco is a question mark, especially since he faded last year. He gives good speed, though. I don't like Reyes at Util, unless you feel you really need the speed. He's only 20, so even though he played well last yeer, expect inconsistency.
I think there's a great combination of AVG and power, and pretty good speed to go with it.

The starting pitching looks good, especially since all the guys look like lower round picks. Saves are the biggest question marks with both RPs being injury prone. If they stay healthy, I think you're in decent shape.

I don't think there's a whole lot to do right now besides evaluating Reyes' viability at Util.

Thanks for the help, guys.

FYI, I got Shawn Green in the 11th round (out of 20) and most of my pitchers after round 12. I took Reyes in the 16th round, only because I thought he was way too valuable to still be available that late.

I always pick closers last because they don't count for much in my league. Mantei and Izzy are big risk-reward guys. This is definitely my weakness. I am in the process of getting Valverde off the WW.

I got MOST of my pitchers after round 12. I took Zito in the fifth.
