All depending on how many teams are in your league, this is my analysis.

Sorry to be so blunt but your OF is in dire need of improvement. It's a walking geriatric ward with an emergency room connected to it. Ordonez & Drew are high risk/high reward players but only one of them should have been drafted. Alou is also another injury prone player & Grissom's best days were in Montreal.

Disagree with the others about gunning for Borowski. He's one of those guys that was at the right place at the right time a couple of years ago. Look at Ryan Dempster instead who will be a middle reliever and is slated to take Hawkin's spot should he faulter. Keep an eye out on Ryan Madson too as a backup for Wagner.

u have way too many risks on ur team
such as
drew
alou
clemens (not a risk but will probably take a step back from last years performance)
penny

but i like how u have good players at all of the thin positions

I would definitely pick up UU. It's not a bad team. You may need to search for starters but pretty solid.

I think postions 2-6 are quite strong. Good job there. You may want to find a way to strengthen your pitching however. After Clemens, I see virtually no strikouts.

Your hitting is ok, but you need to improve the pitching...Clemens is not an ace and if he falters this year...Bonderman is your next best pitcher?...try to do a 2 for 1 deal for a pitcher..Youd need it. Overall its an ok team though.

you definitely need steals, soriano wont get 30 batting 3rd in texas and renteria wont run much in boston...and hold off on chris burke(assuming thats who was mentioned above) only because i live in houston and biggio really wants to go back to second, at least after berkman returns...if burke is a starter, definitely give him a look...yeah you're weak in pitching but stay on the ww and you'll find some good arms...of those rp i like urbina, dont see julio closing, too many good arms for boro to compete with...percival is coming off an injury and isnt any younger, so urbina may get his job back by default...either way he'll help era/whip...i have no problem with risky ofs since thats a deep position...try to trade an infielder for a lesser player at that position + a pitcher, something like that

I've since dropped Grissom, Overbay and Julio (WW). I have now picked up Roberts and Speier. Cant get much going in my league by way of trade. Everyone seems to be out.
Forgot to add that my league was computer drafted.
