Drop Varitek. No need to have 2 catchers (especially if one of them is named Brian McCann). DeRosa is the best FA listed, but the 3 FAs you listed don't look too impressive in general.

Your SP is very patchy too. Jackson, Floyd, Blanton, Germano, and Hughes are all questionable. Your other SP are ok though. Sabathia will bounce back, Volquez is a strikeout machine, Harang is an ace, and Lee is decent.

Sabathia is like getting a root canal with no pain killers right now.

Yes, no need for Varitek unless you start 2 C.

Team looks good with the exception of a few guys dragging down you batting average. I might consider packaging Thome up for a trade to get some avg. and SB's.

Your Sp is just ok. I might consider trading Volquez for a true second tier SP, someone might bite. I am not saying Volquez will not be good but be realistic.

If you get time, I need serious advice on my team.
