5x5 12 Team Roto League

How's it look

C - Varitek
1B - Berkman
2B - Utley
3B - Crede
SS - Furcal
OF - Sheff, Dunn, Victorino
UT - Thome
BN - Posednik, C Jackson

SP - Halladay, Jer Weaver, Bedard, Rogers, Patterson
RP - Ryan, Ray, Torres, Dotel, Broxton

The only changes I've really made so far were trading my Francoeur for his Dunn and I just traded my Young for his Furcal(I consider them even value-wise, and wanted the steals). Also dropped Duffy for Victorino. Think I've got a shot this year, or do I have areas I need to improve in?

Not a bad team. I'd surely take Dunn over Francoeur. Both are known to be BA killers, but at least Dunn is a sure bet to amass more power. For the record, I prefer Young over Furcal, but it's fairly even and fits your basestealing needs. I would've hung onto Duffy over Victorino just for the idea that he could be a cheap 30-40 SB's for where you drafted him, although I frown upon one-dimensional basestealers like him and Podsednik.

Aside from the SB issues, your team might run into a few issues in keeping average high on a consistent basis, but I suppose that's a slight worry when Berkman, Utley, Sheffield, and Thome should hold the fort.

I think the strength of your team more or less lies in your bullpen. Ryan and Ray is a great nucleus to head up a RP core. Starting pitching has good balance, but I'm concerned about Halladay's declining K/IP given that he changed his approach last year in getting hitters out on contact and with Jered Weaver's arm burning out. You do have a few high-reward K artists in Bedard and Patterson though.

I'd say your team has good balance to stay competitive at the end of the day.

Not Bad

Your team is ok but not great. I disagree about Dunn. I think Frank is going in a better direction and reducing his SO's where as Dunn is always going to be a strike out guy.
I think you have a pretty nice balance but Dodger has a point with your BA being a little suspect.
Good Luck!
