Like the guy above me said, nice for a 14 Team League. Your top three pitchers are just sick for a keeper league. Same with your out field. Not to mention Toby Hall will probably be the top catcher after Irod and Piazza are gone. Huff is solid too.
The only real weakness is probably your saves, but you have good guys for the Hold to make up for it.
I think you know what your doing, and im just a tee ball legend. Good luck this year!!
Looks okay, but you appear to be giving up a bit of the present to have success in the future. Offensively, your guys lack power & total bases, with the only ones giving you everything being Pujols and Abreu. (Jones could hurt you in average.) Pitching looks good & you have enough arms to compensate for any injury Kerry Wood will probably eventually get during the season.
Advice: Trade a starting pitcher away for another big bat to round out your team a bit.
Top three are great, bottom three are iffy. Pujols is solid and has no way of slowing down. Jones might not explode this year (i think he will) but will eventually. Abreu is a 5-tool fat-boy that is probably better than bonds in the NL. He's mini-vlad (or big-vlad, now that i think of it.) Gibbons does well on Baltimore. But Matsui and Wilk are Iffy. Wilk was one of the top candidates for NL ROY, and that's a main reason. he's only in his second year. Matsui i don't see living up to the hype. Remember, even ichiro hit 25 HR in Japan.
Strong enough. Not special, but i think we can pass with it. Jenkins is the main guy here, and blalock will probably do well this year.

Like everyone said, very sick. Mulder is 27, Wood is 27, and Halladay is 26 (is he? i think so) and none of them have signs of slowing down.

A little iffy. Julio starred last year, but he is still a rookie. A KC closer is still a KC closer. put smoltz in there and he wont do anything.

Not much to add to those comments; I also see good things in your future.
I'm not quite as concerned about Matsui as DK. When comparing him with Ichiro, Ichiro only reached 25 hr once back in 1995; Matsui has hit at least 34 in the last seven seasons. He's certainly not a sure thing, but he's a great risk as your fifth of.
Not sure that Sauerbeck's worth a roster spot with such a slim bench, though...
You could be right Arlo- but Pitts is the place to find holds if you need them. McLendon is that sort of manager. And I have a high enough waiver priority for when Teix comes up on Yahoo! that I have a shot at him.
Thanks for yr input.
Agreed about Pittsburgh's use of relief pitchers, and with Santana qualifying at SP, you'd be able to use Sauerbeck fairly often. It's definitely a close call. But that's what makes managing a team interesting!
I agree with the above comments, not too much to add. Very nice for a 14-team keeper league. You might have some trouble deciding who to keep after the season, if there are limits! I agree that Matsui should put up some pretty good numbers.
