I'm still relatively new at fantasy baseball, but I was trying to go for guys that contributed in all five categories (for hitters) and focus my pitching staff on saves (in the hopes I can trade somewhere in the season). I think my weakness might be in HR and average, though.

Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance.

Well, you should be able to build a huge lead in saves then trade for other depth. The risk is falling too far behind in quantitave categories like Wins and K's. Those can be extremely hard to make up ground in. I would think about trading one of your relievers for another solid starter before the season starts, or better yet, pick the reliever who starts the hottest (but who you know CAN"T possibly keep it up all season) and trade him for an upper tier starter. Your hitting is very solid, although I don't think you will have a chance to win the steals category, you shouldn't finish last in it either.

I have a hard time judging where people will place with a particular team without seeing all the teams in the league, and so much is determined by who makes good waiver wire pickups, etc., but I would say you have a very strong foundation and should be able to stay competitive all season with this roster.
