Seems like a pretty well-structured team. I would pay close attention to Perez this spring, since he could go either way. Good pick in Harper. I actually missed out on him in the 20th round, which is haunting me. Also - Keep an eye on Addison Reed, who may take over the closer role for Chicago (White Sox) in the near future, especially if Thorton busts again.

Yeah, your team is solid top-to-bottom, but your hitting could use some work. Your hitting isn't bad, but really your only impact hitter is Cano. The pitching is pretty great, though. Lincecum/Hernandez/Hanson is a great top three, especially if Felix returns to form, and your closers are good. Niemann should be safely in the rotation in TB as well, so nothing to worry about there. Alvarez could be boom or bust for you. Your team is solid overall. Good job.

for a 14 team league that's really nice. Agree with the concerns about Perez, unfortunately without guarantees on Cespedes or Harper your outfield lacks a bopper, and it's strange to see freeman in the infield in a league without a 1B/3B utility slot.

however, pitching is so god damn important and some people forget you can dominate a 5x5 h2h league with mediocre offense (you will be fine for SB and probably runs).

Lincecum/Felix/Hanson are going to eat up innings and give you all the Ks you can ask for, and Nova/Minor/Nieman are bubbling with potential without being a complete boom or bust like Darvish

Decent team for 14 team league. Your pitching is really good, hitting is ok but I think your about one power man short. Perhaps Freeman will keep improving or Ichiro may surprise. Overall pretty good team.

why is this a surprise? freeman hit .282 21 hrs 76 rbis 67 rs 4 sbs fellow rookie hosmer his .293 19 hrs 78 rbis 66 11 sbs very similar numbers but im sure if i had hosmer you wouldnt have said that...
