Nice team ian...

Your strength is definately your SP. Any team with Burnett as it's #4 starter is probably doing just fine there. Also, I read somewhere today that he might be back and pitching in a week, so that's good.

Your weakness is probably going to be your power hitting. Teixeira's probably the only guy on your roster who will hit 35 homers, and with Freel and Taveras (who won't combine for double digit homers) both in your starting lineup, you might find yourself on the losing end of the HR/RBI battle most weeks.

Wily Mo is a great source of power but his OBP is so bad that he might do more harm than good for you, considering that OBP is a category that you might be able to win most weeks with your lineup.

Perhaps you could package one of your position players with Zito or Burnett for an offensive upgrade and a decent SP option...

But all-in-all your team isn't too bad for a 12 team league.

I really like your pitching staff and you did a really good job drafting a very high ceiling bench ;-D

Nice solid team, My biggest concern is Burnett period, I might try to trade him now before he gets hurt (Which sorta already happen) Power is lacking a tad but your deep enough in young talent to be ok for years to come, My adivce is move Willy Mo and maybe Burell for Berkman or someone who is a elite hitter, But otherwise nice team

I'd try and dump Baker and pick up Liriano if I were you. He's more likely the starter, and is a better pitcher anyways.

(anyone other than Ian should disreguard that comment, as it is an inside joke)
