Looks good. I am not confident on Escobar but Cain/Hill/McGowan should be very, very good.

1. Your offense is good a lot of power
2. If Kon comes to play that might be a very loaded O. If he doesn't you can move Berk to 1st or Votto
3. My only problem with your O is where you are getting steals. M. Young might get you some, maybe Abreu.
4. You might want to, at some point, look into trading a 3B. You got two legit studs (Zimm?) and you could get something you need.
5. Also, you have 4 1B. If one comes through, i.e. Kon/Delgado you got good trade bait
6. I hate consistency. However, Hill/Cain/McGowen all have high upside. And are all legit 2 or 3 starters in 12 team
7. You got an awful lot of relief. But no top flight (maybe Soria).

If I was you I would trade some of the power at some point in the season if people get off to hot starts (Konerko, Delgado, Zimm) for some pitching. But with your squad, other than SB you will own on O. And your pitching has a lot of potential.

Your offense is pretty good. You may be a little low on steals. Young will give you about 15, Wright will most likely go 30/30 again, great pick, He should be a good number 2 overall pick IMO. Abreu should get you about 20 steals as well so I would look on the WW for people who can get you steals, I would suggest you drop maybe Delgado for a steals guy, don't see him rebounding. I got Konerko round 10 in my league and I couldn't be happier with that. I think he'll outperform that 10th round value. Picking him up 7th is a good value too, should give you 30+ HR's and 100+ RBI's.

As for pitching I think you could use some improvement. Escobar is not ace quality, although good, shouldn't be your number 1 starter. I like Cain and his potential but two things about that: he's still young and he's in San Fran so don't expect a lot of wins. Hill should be good I like him. McGowen could be a sleeper but we'll see. Maybe you can even shop Delgado for another pitcher or something like that. Just a thought.
