My first thought is that there's no way this is an actual draft. But I believe you, and I think you have a hell of a team. Your pitching staff is stacked and I could honestly see you going 5-0 in those categories each week. Niese and Lynn were great late round pick-ups, as they have great potential to do well. Stacked OF, very fast middle infield. The only pick I'm not fond of is Allen Craig. I'm personally just not high on him.

As for trades, I'd throw CC and his big name on the block and see what you can get for him. If you could pick up a solid 1B or a ridiculous offer for CC, I think he's done his part for your team this year.

Good luck!

wow. Looks like you had luck and knowledge on your side, this is one hell of a stacked team. I understand it's a 10 man league but I don't see any major holes. You will have a big bat on your bench (I would start Altuve and Willingham at UT) which leaves LaRoche. Your OF and pitching depth will allow you to put together a good package for a need, but at this time I don't see you needing much. A third closer would help boost saves, so maybe a minor deal like Willingham for Romo or something along those lines would be nice. Target a team with extra closers in need of power and make an offer or sit tight and drop one of your extra SS's for a closer on the WW if one pops up.

I agree with one of the previous posters, you could do better at 1B. Also why do you need 3 3B's? I think you could do away with a couple of your backups a 2B,3B and SS and go with a Multi pos player like M. Young. That should give you some good pieces to trade for an upgrade. I would also look into adding another closer, Street likes to spend time on the DL.

Generally speaking, the only real area of concern other than 1B and closer might just be overall health, as a couple of guys have some minor-to-mid healthy issue pasts.

Definitely think closer is your weakest area (with 10 teams, that averages out to 3 closers per team, and Street going down is always a reasonable possibility). I wouldn't trade CC, but maybe Medlen if he gets off to a fast start in the first month or so. Or Medlen + Craig/LaRoche for an upgrade at 1B. Some guys are really high on Craig so there's that.

Good luck.
