This is my first year giving this a try. We conducted a live draft before the season began, and I came away with these guys, modified by a bit of creative managing. So far so good this season, though. Mine is one of three teams trading around first place at the moment. Any weak spots you see or suggestions? Thanks!!

Not a bad start

Dude, first off I like your team, especially since your in a ten team league. I think your hitting is going to be realy good across the board, letting you compete very well in all five categories.

I like you pitching with Pedro, Hudson, and Brule. I think you should try to get another top line pitcher to one of the teams not doing as well. Maybe you could trade some of your other pitchers and get one more ace, not that your depth is bad, but if one of your top three go down you might want one more ace (Pedro's history is shakey, and seeing that he is currently on the DL, you might be in for a frustrating ride). Good luck, and try not to let the injury bug bite you bad, if it doesn't I'm sure you'll do well.

Thanks for the thoughts!! I picked up Esteban Loaiza shortly after the season began, and traded him for Andruw Jones to shore up the outfield...I was not sold on Loaiza for the whole season due to his history. Thought my pitching was still alright, but now that I have written it out in the profile and checked it, I think that you may be right...another ace would really solidify things.

I appreciate the comments!! Thank you!! Anyone else want their 2 cents?

you could use an upgrade at SS. Rich Aurilla is just average. Maybe a closer and a good starter can get you a nomar or a furcal. Otherwise, you have a solid team.
