Your offense is going to be able to compete and win week in and week out. Definitely like that you took advantage of the fact that Hits are counted in your league, drafting Ichiro, Ellsbury and Tulo is definitely going to be a bonus. With that said, you NEED to make a move to get a top of the line starting pitcher. You have way too many question in your staff. The only reliable guys on your staff in my opinion is Jered Weaver and maybe Gavin Floyd. I do like to take chances on pitching staffs, I feel like you have to, but you have way too many variables. If I'm you, deal Ichiro and Price for a Johan Santana, Justin Verlander type player and a 200+ inning guy like Javier Vasquez. You definitely need to make a move for your staff. You have a good team, your offense has to be top 2 in the league, but to win, get a big name. Hope this helps.

Not a huge fan of the offense, only because I don't think you'll have enough power in a 10 team league. You do have speed though. But then again, I'm only saying that because I don't think Soriano or Carlos Lee will get you more than 30HR or Berkman more than 35 (with his occasional HR binge months). If you project higher, then you will have enough HR. Still, the bench is really weak. I'd look to deal for a better starter. It's a lot to ask that Webb and Hamels return to #1 SP status. If they don't, you will need someone steady.

Definitely agree on the whole lacking power point.

I think Ben Sheets will have a comeback so i like that pick.

Overall a pretty decent team...not a big fan of the offense like that other guy... But with some trades you should be able to be up there.

i love your team

webb hamels sheets kazmir all risky but all guys i personally targeted because i think every single one has ace like potential this season reguardless of last year

also love david prive, think hes a great value this year and could start to live up to his potential...if u felt the need to trade for an ace i wouldnt blame you, but i probably wouldnt change a thing till you see how the season goes

help please
