I've seen the Young/Guerrero alot, which is a good combination. Overall, your batters are better excellent. I'd be a little worried about Thomas, then again i'm always worried about anyone old, but the fact that you can put Cameron on the bench is a good sign.

Your pitching- your relievers are are good, not Eric Gagne, but good. This I definitely know-- the Angels will miss Percival. Some people say he's slipping, but he'll be trying to prove to himself that he can play, so i'd expect 30 saves out of him. Probably more. Pettite....sheez.......I never know what to say for him. Once a fantastic lefty, I dont think we'll see his 2003 numbers this year, but hopefully we'll see him play more than 80 innings.

personally, im not a big fan of takatsu, and you might want to make a trade for a guy who steals 30+ and make him part of your infield (2nd would be good b/c you have plenty of power and can afford to lose kent)

My two cents...

Looks like a pretty decent team, however:

I would have someone other than Matt Lawton as your UTIL. I really think he will struggle with National League pitching.

Mussina is a real gamble.
Percival is a big gamble.
Takatsu is a gamble, but maybe he's the next Sasaki (circa 2001).

Your pitching staff could wind up being respectable, or completely awful, I would try trading for a bonafide starter. Doesn't have to be Randy Johnson, just a top 30 or 40 pitcher whom you know will put up good numbers.
