Overall I think the team looks pretty solid. Your OF should be very strong, I expect big rebound years for Jones and Bay, who I think will crack your starting lineup shortly. Iwamura (assuming he soon qualifies at 2B) is a good backup to Weeks, who is not likely to be healthy and seems to have a poor work ethic. One area you should be concerned about is the SV category. None of those guys are a lock for the closer job, IMO. Pena is going to get first crack in AZ, but if he falters Lyon is a quick fix for the Diamondbacks. Gregg was decent last year, but can he repeat that performance? And though there is no concrete relationship between team success and save opportunities, one has to question the amount of chances that Gregg will get in FL. And I'm not sold on Wilson. I'm usually in the same boat with you on closers, its against my creed to spend big money or high draft picks on the big name closers, as the position is so unpredictable (got screwed with BJ Ryan last year), so the flaw clearly is not fatal. You just need to keep a very close eye on each of your guys, and be ready to snatch up their replacements if they falter. Other than that, it looks solid. Good luck!

Bay should start over Willingham right away IMO. IMO Carlos Pena just screams 1 year wonder. If you can find somebody who is in love with him for a repeat year then you should make a deal. The biggest strength of yours is the rotation. Bedard, Kazmir, Verlander, and Vazquez are all good pitchers to have. If you could pair one of those guys with Pena I'm sure you can fetch a nice package to improve the offense.
