Hey. I think you're a little weak in pitching, but that is made up for in your infield depth. It's hard to say some of them are unnecessary because infield can be shallow. Your outfield on the other hand could easily live without Dyson, Hamilton (if he doesn't show any life) and Beltran, all are expendable with OF being deep this year. I like the pitching staff, just like to have more, personally. I believe it makes better use of your bench spots unless you have a severe weakness (which would need a solution anyways), just two players who get started based on matchup or stashing an injured player/prospect. Hope this helps

Solid team for a 10-team league depending on how the points are set up. I would sell high on Mesoraco - I'm really scared of a catcher that's had 3 concussions - and enjoy Lucroy at C this year. Butler can slot in at 1b then and Semien can slot in at CI so basically any hitter you would get back could work roster-wise. You could also look to package Mesoraco + a pitcher to upgrade there as well.

There has to be a catcher needy team in the league you can flip Lucroy to for an upgrade. Lucroy's value is derived from his catcher eligibility, so if you're slotting him at 1B you're devaluing him. I like the rest of your roster for the most part, though. I would dump Josh Hamilton.
