Some problems that I see.. For an 8 team league, that is a weak offense. ARod coming back should obviously help, but Tulo going down kills you. Aybar is a nice replacement for now, but a combo of Lopez/Ayber/Hudson isn't going to cut it. Try and improve there. Also, the OF and Util for an 8 teamer lacks alot. You need more speed and power. Since it's an 8 teamer, watch the Waiver for some better pick-ups.

Pitching needs help, but when Verlander turns it around it should improve. Maybe trade a closer for some MI help (Cano) or a buy low OFer.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
