Great hitters, especially the infield, although in a 10-team league, there must be a better OF than Jenkins available. I think you could do with a bit more speed (assuming this is a 5x5 league).

Your pitching staff worries me. Good 1-2 in Sheets & Mulder, but after that it drops off sharply. Again, in a 10-team league, there really should be better SPs available than Milton.

Hmmm. To be honest, this team looks to me like it belongs in a deeper league.

I'm surprised to see Jenkins, Milton and Backe starting in a 10 team league. Especially since the starting rosters or only 16 players deep and clearly favor relievers. These guys should be on a roster, but I'm not sure you want to be counting on them for much at the outset.

The power numbers are all there. I'd look for a good three cat player to slot into the outfield instead of Jenkins. If a runs/sb/avg outfielder is available either by draft or in a reasonable trade, I'd consider looking at how those numbers would break down for you.

Also, you'll want more focus on wins and K's in those RP and P slots. That's one terrific infield. It should keep this team competitive, but it looks to me like there's some holes you'll need to address. Helpful advice? Who knows.

Hitting is good. Pitching is weak behind Sheets and Mulder.

Closers, other than Nathan, are a bit shaky as well. See if you could even possibly offer up Dunn for some pitching help.

actually someone offered to trade me Matt Clement and Magglio Ordonez for Dunn, Jenkins, Milton. So I accepted that, obviously. And I just picked up V. Zambrano, Jason Bay, D. Willis, R. Baldelli.

That sounds like a nearly ideal trade for you.

This team seems to be coming together. Good luck.
