**Take this with a grain of salt, because I usually stick with 5x5, occasionally 6x6 (and rarely, as in this is the first year I've done it, 7x7), so I'm not used to this many scoring categories. Maybe I'm talking out of my [expletive], so at least wait until you get a second opinion before you do something rash.

24 categories, and the only two that get any real direct help from relievers are Saves and Blown Saves? To me, that kind of scoring favors the starters immensely, and if it were me, I'd load up on as many quality starters as I can. Good start with "Cake and Cookies" Sabathia, Jon Lester and Cole Hamels, but I'd want some more starters on my team. You really don't need 5 closers at all, and you should push to trade at least one of them for some more starters.

Maybe see if someone's going to take Byrnes off your hands, because he doesn't appear to have a starting job right now and with all his leg injuries he's had, he won't be stealing much in the near future, and that's really his biggest asset to fantasy. If you can't land a trade with him, just let him go. There's got to be better options on the FA wire.

I'd really hope that Hanley, Lee and Polanco can bring up your average, because it's going to suffer a lot from Pena and Young, and they'll probably strike out a ton. Normally, I wouldn't even think about having Polly on my team, but because of the stats you have here (.300+ AVG, and he never ever strikes out), he could be an asset.

I think there's a little bit of work here, but you've got a pretty good foundation to start off with. You have a decent mix of speed and pop on offense, and some quality starters at the top of your rotation, but like I said, take this with a grain of salt, I'm a 5x5 guy.

Care to take a look at mine? Thanks.
