It seems to be a fairly balanced team. I like Hanley and Drew, though I'd probably put Nomar in the util spot. OF doesn't really impress me, but it's one of the best infields you can put together. Soriano won't be a 40/40 guy (but I am a Cards fan so I'm bias). And the Average isn't great. But if he doesn't get fat 30/30 is a reasonable expectation with around .275 avg. HOlliday'll be good not sure I expect another 35 HR season out of him (but I'm always skeptical of guys in Col and guys who hit more HR in one season thant he previous two combined. I'm not a fan of Burrell. He's like Dunn with fewere HR's.

You got speed and power balanced throught he lineup I love it actually. Who let youd raft this team?

As far as Pitchers. Webb will repeat his performance from last year. Hover around a 3 ERA, win 15-18, I might see the K's drop.
Harang is a good K guy. I really like Cain they say he's got Ace stuff. Bedard is an ehh pick, and again I'm a cards fan so unless Rogers tars up all year I wouldn't expect a repeat performance. But he is a location pitcher and his age shouldn't hurt him too bad. Hoffman and Fuentes are decent closers, but on teams thay may not win a ton of games. I'd say you got 60+ saves, but you're not a shoe in to win those cats. Lowry and Blanton are good to round it off, and Soriano might sneak in to the Closer spot but he's gonna be worth more to lower the ERA a bit and try and steal a win.

I think burrell is the one spot you could use an upgrade at. Keep a lookout on the waiver wire for someone who could hit for good power in that OF spot. If he gets injured or turns in a stinker then dave roberts isn't going to be any sort of power source for you.
