I like your team. I think you may need to add some speed though. Consider moving kent as he is now in a pitchers park and add some speed.

How many teams are in your league?

Your IF is pretty solid, and I think it was good of you to gamble on the Cleveland guys... they could be very productive this year. Your OF is well balanced with both speed and power, and the SPs look pretty solid. I think you may need to grab a second closer: use Graves and a bench player to upgrade to a better guy. You could possibly use some of your lower-end SPs to trade as the season progresses, especially since you're pretty deep at the position.

Really? Speed? I though I had it covered. Patterson swiped 32 last year, Winn is 20+ every year, Guerrero stole 15, Young stole 13, Jones 13, Giles 10... I figured if they at least put up that this year, and Patterson's total should increase, I'd be okay. In fact, all-toll that lineup stole 126 bases last year.

12.

You think? Graves has been pretty damn solid at closer, he picked up 41 last year, and has had 30+ any full season at the position. Lidge is a machine, I figured I could expect another 35-40 save effort from Graves and 50 with 150+ k from Lidge.



Your pitching is your weakness, and SS. Cabrera is a good player to have on a real team, but he isn't much for fantasy. The Angels are a station to station team so his SB total may go down, his average will be about the same (.260ish) and his power numbers will be low.

Move a big bat and upgrade at closer and/or SP.

Your team looks solid. I do agree about too many Indians. I don't like to have more than 1 player from a given team. Don't pawn Kent; though in a pitchers park he should be driving in a lot of runs and is a top 2B. You will do OK in the SB department but don't expect to dominate. Good luck ;-D

Well, Belliard will back up Kent. Hafner I got in the 14th round and Casey Blake in the 15th. Yes, that late. Couldn't pass them up... it allowed me to draft an unreal pitching staff... how can I lose with Hudson, Zambrano, Perez leading the way? This I ask.

And I don't plan on moving Kent, he's going to hit cleanup... even if his HR numbers go down due to the park, his RBI and Avg will still be up there.
