The lineup is strong, except for 3B and your MI positions. Those should be easy enough to fill throughout the year though. Pitching could be a problem - Kazmir is the only real ace out of that group that has the potential to win a lot of games. I don't think you can trust Verlander after his horrible year last year, and Buehrle/Weaver/Floyd are just unpredictable. I do like Slowey, and Oswalt is Oswalt. Nice RP's, could add a third.

Thanks for the help with mine.

Looks like you went after the speed aspect! Don't like Carlos Quentin. One good year and everyone is on his jock! I suggest keeping an eye on him early and then maybe packaging him for a pitcher who will get u wins. Oswalt, Verlander, and kazmir, stud strikeout pitchers, but have huge question marks.

Oswalt: Old, k numbers will decline. Astros team????
verlander: Will he ever rebound? is his arm tapped? Can the tigers get wins for him?
Kazmir: Can he pitch deep in games to get u wins? Will he hurt with walking guys.

I like Slowey. But i think u are hurting with floyd and Weaver also.

U need a solid unquestionable pitcher. I don't like the question marks. I have the same problem with my pitching staff, But i did that on purpose because, the good thing about pitching is that there will be so many pitchers available all season.

I hope this helps!

your only weakness is starting pitchers - all else is rock solid. you have a lot of depth at most hitting positions, so trading one for an ace won't hurt you much. when weiters rides a chariot of fire over the opposition, you can trade martin for sumtin' good ;-D

i'm a little worried about Kevin Gregg so i would try to get another closer just in case because Papelbon is great but you'll need more than just one solid closer. other than that pretty good.

rate my team too! viewtopic.php?f=29&t=377723
