Looks like you're covered all around. With Cabrera and Freese, though, Middlebrooks is redundant. Could be trade bait. I don't know what your innings cap is, but if you're pushing it, consider trading a couple starters (Lester, Wilson, or Hellickson, ideally, but Chapman's going to the rotation this year, might be a risk). Biggest hole is Hosmer (in my mind) and you've got the goods to trade up for 1B. Maybe one more closer or set-up guy with a high strikeout rate. Don't overlook the averages! (BA, OBP, ERA, WHIP)

Your team is pretty good. Like the previous poster said, I have concerns about Hosmer and I'd look to trade for a better 1B. Maybe package him with Gardner/a pitcher for a 1B with a 300 + AVG? Overall, theres not too many holes in your squad.

Help with mine?

I agree with the above but......

Why all the concern with Hosmer? Take a look at Jason Heywards rookie year and compare it to Hosmer. Virtually identical. Now take a look at their 2nd year, very similar outside of the SB edge with Hosmer. Don't give up on this kid, I see him bouncing back a la Heyward (which I hit on last year). Hosmer is a post hype sleeper, you heard it here first.

I'd look for an upgrade from Hosmer if possible, but if he breaks out, you have a great cheap first baseman. I'd want some insurance though. Your team is pretty good everywhere else. You have enough third base options there for one of those guys to break through. Then you can dump whoever appears to be lagging behind.

Take a look at mine if you get a chance.

i have to keep reminding myself you're in a 10 team league everytime i look at your roster b/c like what everyone else was saying your team is pretty well covered in every area. I really like simmons this year and the fact that you have him and castro at short smh. In regards to 1b as the previous person was pointing out I'm still iffy on hosmer and you could trade freese or middle brook. I feel bad its seems like im just restating what the guys before me were saying and in essence not bringing anything to the table haha. sorry man hope everything goes well with you and your team this season
