Really? I was actually thinking that, looking at the team at face value, I should finish in the top three in the league, no problem (obviously. assuming I can make reasonable adjustments along the way). The pitching staff definitely isn't the best in the league, but Sabathia, Hill, and McGowan are all studs. If at least two of the other four either meet or exceed expectations, isn't that a well-above-average staff?
Thanks for the feedback...any other comments would be greatly appreciated.

I like Lastings as a reserve outfielder too. I picked him up myself this morning.
You could use a true power guy, but you had to know drafting in the top 5 (I am guessing you took Wright at 4 or 5?) in a 12 man league that you wouldn't get one with Wright. I'd tend to keep Wright and keep your eye out for that Carlos Pena guy that has an unexpected productive season this year. Pena might even be a guy you target in a trade. I would not be giving up Wright and having RP be part of the deal. Your pen is fine, and RP will come along in the year. I think someone along the lines of Markakis could probably grab you a Pena and maybe a slight pitcher upgrade too. I think Markakis's main value over someone like Pena is in his SBs (18 last year), but you seem to have speed in other places.
