Well, it depends on the number of teams in your league and your scoring, of course, but I wouldn't worry too much about your bats. You might want to consider upgrading Randa, for instance, but that's just nitpicking: this is an excellent lineup.

Your pitching is another matter. You have some nice arms, but what you lack appears to be consistency (and saves) - many of these guys will go through hot and cold streaks all season. If you can somehow add a dependable ace, perhaps by trading for an early underachiever, as well as a closer or two, you'll be in much better shape.

Thanks! My league has 12 teams, and scores with all the usual stat categories. My hitters look great on paper, but they haven't lived up to their potential yet, but I figure they will have to at some point. You're right about the pitching, though. Basically there were 2 teams in the live draft that sucked up practicaly ALL the closers, so I just figured I would lose that category haha. I Would like to have a dependable starter though....possibly a trade in my future.
