Honestly, I don't love your team. I love the POTENTIAL that you have gathered but you are counting on guys like ARod and AGonz to keep up their weight. Again, I love the aggressive strategy going young mostly which is what I do. Teheran is a sneaky peak.

Good luck to you. I myself am going for the repeat. I invite you to take a look: viewtopic.php?t=494080

how many teams in this league? Kim doesn't belong on a roster no matter how big the league is. Soler might not play enough. Wellington Castillo is the best catcher available? Meseraco, Gomes, or even Cervelli arent available?

What were the auction prices you paid for your team? Hard to rate otherwise.

From a general perspective I like your pitching much more than your hitting. Teheran shouldn't be on your bench he's a huge bounce back candidate for me. I'm assuming that's Alex Wood in your pitching spot?

Risks at hitter - Russell, Soler, A-Rod, Kim all could struggle to varying degrees. Sano, Lindor and Betts are still pretty raw. I would have liked to mix some veterans in there to be honest. There's also a lack of power to be had here - nobody (other than Sano) has a realistic shot at 30+ HR.

Overall I rate a C+, too much risk for my liking. Need more balance.
