Looks like a team I'd love to have. I might consider trading floyd for a stronger 3bm or another decent closer. And I'd start Ibanez at 1b over Konerko. Otherwise you seem pretty strong and to have all the categories covered for a 5/5. Good luck

eight

Yeah, but it's an eight team league.

You'd start Ibanez over Konerko at first?

And what about speed? I don't have many steals.

And you think Benitez and Gagne aren't good enough for saves?

Thanks!

I would be concerned with your catcher. Varitek is decent, but won't give you tons of points. Try to package A. Jones and Ibanez and get a top notch catcher, like I-Rod. He's been doing really well this spring and should shine on a young Marlins team. Ibanez had a good breakout year, but he is still on the Royals who are looking to dump stars. A. Jones never has lived up to his billing and might just be a decent hitter with great defensive skills.
Good luck

Benitez and Gagne are excellent for saves.

Rolen is a top 5 3B. I don't know how Floyd can get you any better unless you package him in a deal and you don't need to because he is not your weakness. Catcher is your weakness. I would see if one of your bench guys can get you an upgrade or another closer.

I wouldn't start Ibanez over Konerko. I would start him over Winn.
That reduces your speed but you will make up for it in other areas.
