Looks decent. I'm not crazy about the Lester/Sale combination at the top of the pitching staff as both have injury concerns at the moment but the fact that you're skewed pitching at the top of your roster doesn't hurt in a points league. I'm not blown away but this should be a reasonably competitive team in a 15-team league. A lot will depend on the health of those 2 pitchers.

Other than Bautista/Lester/Sale you have a bunch of question marks, it looks to me like you're going to have a hard time making out of the middle of the pack.

I understand it don't look as sexy as a 10 or 12 team league but as far as a 15 team league I didm't think it was that bad. Pitching you only can draft 8 pitchers and relief so I could not stack up on people I really wanted. With the amount of hitting spots I think I did ok just does not look as sexy as we would want it. I normally hate drafting in a league so big with that many positions but it is challenging to say the least. Thank you for the feed back.

It's not a bad team. You just don't have the top-end hitting because a few of your top picks were pitchers. Especially with Lester's dead arm and Sale's broken foot that significantly raises the variance on this team. If Lester and Sale both pitch at the top of your game you've got a good shot at doing well though.

Yea for what I have heard on Sale/Lester everything looks good and yes pitching scores more points in this league. But you are right if they both don't pitch well I can be in big trouble.

It's a team that is packed with potential--especially in a 15 team league. If your guys stay healthy and perform to their upsides--you should be great. However--if your top side guys don't stay healthy--I think you also have the potential to struggle a bit. Good luck and cross fingers that your guys stay healthy

There is talent here, but as others have already said, there are a number of question marks. If some of your questionable players get off to a strong start, I'd recommend divesting yourself of some of the risk even if you cash out a little light. As you've noted, it's a 15-team league, though, so your roster is middle of the pack with upside -- and downside, too.
