You have a great lineup, but your pitching looks a bit weak for a 8-Team league, with no legitimate aces (IMO at least, not a believer in Dickey). You do not need John Buck; trust me he will cool off very quickly and you will never use him over Santana.

If this is a weekly points scoring system I think you will do fine, with a plethora of solid starters to use in two-start weeks. If not you may struggle with pitching. Awesome lineup will probably make up for it anyway. :-D

I agree with the previous post. I think it's time to cut Buck, and Cuddyer. Your lineup is strong and they won't break into it.

Your pitching is weak, and you should look for some potential upside pitchers on free agency. I'm sure there are some to be had since it's an 8 team league.

Where I disagree is Dickey. He is a legitimate ace, killed the AL East last year, and deserves a mulligan for his early woes. Knuckleballers can get crushed one night and be lights out the next; they are much more variable than your standard pitcher. I bet he gets back on track.
