Real good team.

Closer is obviously the big weakness.

You probably have too many hitters on your bench and need another SP. I think you're going to end up wanting Reynolds in your offense. If you need to drop someone, drop Byrnes. I imagine there's a better catcher available than AJ.

Yeah if Motte doesn't take hold of the Cards closer role I'll need another one. So I should keep Reynolds and drop Byrnes for another SP? I thought maybe with Byrnes looking good in spring he could get me some steals.

But I got lucky wih this team in a 12 man draft I think.

I like your team a lot. I am in the same situation as you regarding Catcher. If Mauer is out for any long period of time you may need an upgrade, but other than that closer is the only other area that I could see that may need improvement.

I can't find any concrete projections for Mauers injury. I've seen as little as 15 days and other places more. Sadly AJ is the best available backup (unless you view Chris Snyder as better) baring a trade.

your lineup is really solid... my only real concern(apart from RP, which has already been adressed is your staff. Have a decent 2 or 3 starter on your bench ready to go in case Harden goes down. Also, a word of caution towords volquez... he got absolutely lit in the second half last year, it seems hitters may have him figured out. Keep an eye on him.

Last I heard(this was yesterday) there's a decent chance Mauer won't start the season on the ball club. Are there literally no other catchers, could you post free agents?
