Damn - you posted at 6:27 and no one responded?

Anywho, your team looks really good (you maximized what you can do based on the $$), especially in a keeper. Just try to strengthen your bench a little but though, but otherwise, your team will contend.

If I had to give constructive critivism, I'd say to try and strenghen your pitching depth. Your two starters and Buehrle are good, but you may want to get another consistently reliable pitcher to back things up in case something happens.

But again, I really like your team. How many teams are in your league?

There are 12. Its the 2nd rate veterans keeper league, I will say. Anyways, yes, the bench could be better, but its hard to strengthen the bench when you are starting 14 hitters. Like 4 or 5 starters are usually bench players in smaller leagues.

I think you've got some big name players at excellent value (Tex, MCab, Perez, Oswalt could all have fetched higher prices)

I might be tempted to start Koskie over Broussard, and I don't like your MI & CI (don't rate Jiminez, and Sweeney is always an injury risk)

Apart from that, great job! ;-D

Yeah, Sweeney was a mistake as soon as I saw Casey Blake nominated and then go for $4. I got caught trying to bid Sweeney up a bit :,-( . As for UTIL and bench, that probably depends on who I am started because its in the order of who I bought and such.
