I'm okay with Clement's offensive potential as long as he stays at C. If he gets time at 1B in '08 I'd be even happier. I could use a backup 1B, some speed, and of course some saves but I don't know if I can accomplish all of that in the 26-28th round picks.

Looks like your team is ready to make a run this year. The only thing that could get you is the injury bug but I doubt that will happen.

Thanks, I actually won the league championship last year but it was our 6th year and my 1st Championship in a very hard and competitive league. See any weaknesses? I do still and I'm working towards fixing them.

Biggest weakness I see is at 2B. In a 12 team league, their should be better than Cabrera as a starter.

Pitching could be dominant...or in trouble. I would not feel very safe having both Sheets and Hardne on my roster. Oswalt, Zambrano and Hernandez though is a tough top 3 to beat, but it falls off after that. You do have some good young guys though that could improve like Francis, Greinke and Lester. Not a huge worry, but somehting that could become a problem later in the season depending on injuries.

Offense seems to have a good balance of speed, power and youth.

Overall, should challenge again for the title. I would look at upgrading 2B, maybe getting a safer mid-level SP, and if you have the chance also upgradin a closer spot. I'm not sold on Lidge right now.

Well, I do have Zito to account for the mid-level SP you mentioned. I also have Aybar to help supplement Cabrera but the market it pretty then. The closer market is also crazy thin so I'll have to likely wait for a team to change closers.
