Waited awhile to take SPs...with Total Bases Against as the 6th category I thought going with a reliever-heavy approach was a good idea, while streaming starters to snag some wins and Ks.

I like the team overall, and you have great keepers! It is perfectly fine that you waited on pitching since you have Felix and Darvish anchoring your staff along with the best closer in baseball as your top closer. I like the offensive players you drafted a lot, and you even got some insurance for the oft injured Tulowitzki. While your team does have great stolen base potential, I worry about how many of those guys will actually steal what their potential says (Bourn on the bench helps). It's definitely worth monitoring. You can have 10 from Lucroy, 15 from Lawrie, 25 from McCutchen, 30 from Jennings (potential for 40+ from Jennings), 20 from Aoki, and you also have Bourn and Villar on your bench. If everything works out and you are able to start Bourn and Villar on the right days where they get some steals, you could do well in the category. Hopefully you get another great year out of Ortiz (I had him and Cabrera last year in one league and I dominated home runs and RBI). If Tulo stays healthy then your offense looks pretty awesome (even without him it looks studly).

Pitching is also good with upside to be great. Gotta love having Felix and Darvish at the top with Kimbrel to do his thing as well. I'm not a total bases against expert, but I'm gonna guess that those 3 guys along with the dominant middle relievers are gonna help you out big time in the category. I guess I would target pitcher with low batting average against? I also like the fact that you got Cueto, Estrada, and Straily. Those 3 guys are very undervalued.


I'm not seeing anything eye popping that you need to fix, some good in season management can go a long way!

I would have liked to see some more quality SP's. You have a injury to Yu or Felix and you will be in trouble. Not loving the OF counting on Cuddyer and Desmond makes me uncomfortable. Question marks behind rock solid Kimbrel in the closers spot. Can Ortiz PED his way to another great season who knows. Will Abreu flourish or flat line? Cutch and Miggy will be doing some heavy lifting to keep this team in the upper near the top of the league.

help on mine?
