Really strong offence. The only problem I see is that your a bit thing on the bench if you get some early injuries. Good minor leaguers though with Bruce and Rasmus who should come up early this year. Pitching doesn't look that strong on paper, but you have some guys who could have really solid years like Shields and McGowan. If B.J Ryan comes good from the surgery, you've got heaps of saves. You could look at trading a closer early on to address a weakness you find. But at the moment your team looks really strong.

If minor leaguers are valued highly in your league, I'd try and package one or Bruce or Rasmus with a pitcher to try and get a true ace. You still should be fine though.

I'm always scared to go into a season without one ace.... but that's just me... If you could somehow upgrade @ SP maybe package closer and a position player? good luck

Matt Kemp could be a guy who hits 30 home runs and bats around or over .300. Of course he'd have to get enough playing time.

Hopefully Ervin Santana and Nate McLouth or somebody produces big to start the season and you can sell high for some SP. Otherwise I suggest this strategy as a possibility: I'm not sure if this is a roto or h2h league but you could try and pickup some really good MR pitchers like Broxton, Neshek, H. Bell, instead of the mediocre SP. You'll take a hit in the counting cats but you could end up better off overall because most of you're current SP aren't going to do very well and may end up contributing little to the counting stats and hurting you a lot in the rating stats. Just a thought. Thanks for your help.
