It seems like you have a good balanced team that will be competitive week in and week out in all categories. You were smart to wait on your starters with 6 batting cats. Your success definitely hinges on some of your younger players but I like all of them to have a good year. Especially with your young arms like harvey and moore. Aoki is such a good value pick this year and belt is raking it in spring training thus far (Hopefully he finally gets the playing time he deserves). The only concern of mine is with your closers. Betancourt is solid but i feel like he is gonna end up as a set up guy on another team so maybe grab a handcuff for him towards the deadline just to be safe. Hanrahan's walk rate concerns me a bit with his new hr friendly digs but we shall see how that works out. Other than that very solid team and good luck. Take a look at mine when you get a chance
I like your strategy with the way scoring is set up. You went offense heavy to start and that is where it counts in your league. I think you'll be fine. Your pitching is unproven but you have good upside.
I like your squad. It speaks for itself, but i really like Josh Hamilton (assuming he stays healthy) hitting in that lineup with Trout and Pujols, I think he should have a monster year. I also like the Goldschmidt pick. I think with Upton gone Goldschmidt will get more opportunities to drive in more runs. Especially with a guy like prado hitting in the 1 or 2 hole in that lineup.
Your pitching staff seems to be balanced, much like mine its lacking a true ace, but you can get by with what you have. Especially if you watch the wire and find this years kris medlen. Any feedback on my team would be greatly appreciated, You can find in the rate my team thread. i would copy and paste the link to my team below like i have noticed others doing, but I am having issues figuring out to create that url.
