Well it doesn't look as bad as it could be. Soto is the weaklink in your hitting. Morneau, Hanley, Atkins, Soriano, and Hart are all solid. If Manny and Hafner return to form then you have a pretty sick offense.

Your pitching could use some work however. I like Chris Young and Rich Hill is solid. I want to see how Gallardo does in a full season so that will be interesting, same thing with James Sheilds. Billingsly I'm not too keen on yet. and Andrew Miller was a top prospect for Detroit, then he went to Florida so I see him having an ok year, probably won't get you too many wins I'ld imagine. The problem with your pitching basically is that you have too many young guys who haven't really had full seasons under their belt. A lot of pitchers you have now should be good in the future but they are still young. This would be a great team for a keeper league.

Overall I say you have a pretty decent team.

Young, Shields, Hill, and Gorzelanny all have full seasons under their belt and are all getting better every year.

Gallardo is suppose to be sick this year and I think I will target him in every draft. Miller was my 22nd round pick so it was great vlaue and if he starts slow cut him. Billingsley was excellent last year and showed dominant stuff when inserted into the rotation. Every pitcher has K's and ability to throw a shutout on any day. Not bad taking my first SP in round 7

I think if i saw a team like this I would pencil them in for first place. This offense can handel Soto while he figures things out.

You have a solid team up and down. I'd trade Manny or one of your other OF for another starter.
