I think your lineup is weak in a few spots. I don't expect Rickie weeks to do much of anything... he gets on base a ton(considering he dosen't hit) but he has a terrible slugging pct... thats really gonna drag down your ops. He may give you double digits in steals and hrs... but not more then maybe 20/14 respectively. Plus its been a while since he's played a full season, who knows how he will react.
Also, in a league where avg isn't a cat i'm not so sure I like jeter. Dosen't really have power... pretty standard obp and decent slugging but i'm just not sure... he may keep you competitive in ops, but his only real standout category you are using is hits, and think of all the categories you are sacraficing.
for my money, a healthy nick johnson(provided he is healthy) is in my lineup every day... he is a monstrous OBP guy with avg to above average slugging and 20+ hr power and he can hit... I like him a lot if he is healthy
you have a lot of young pitchers with a ton of upside.... my only concern would be Beckett's health.If he goes down, you don't really have an anchor, and that can get you into trouble.

I know it sounds like I am being harsh... but I really do like this team, just a couple of adjustment areas and I feel this could be a top team. You may be thinking a guy like Rickie weeks will take off if he gets out and plays a full season, i'm not sure personally
