Couple of homers from your team today I see. It is a solid lineup from top to bottom. I am a little worried about Tanaka after watching him today, looks like a different guy. I think your pitching is deep enough regardless. If Nathan finds old form and Rondon goes as projected you should wind up with a good amount of saves. I think you have a lot covered, seen a lot of Zobrist on people's teams and love his role.

Thanks alot man, glad to hear I drafted well, I am nervous about Tanaka as well, but I believe he will have a big game soon and when he does I'm sell him high as i can. Hopefully I can get a solid bat and low end pitcher good ol 2 for 1 action. Sooner or later he will have that surgery it's just a matter of time. I don't want to strike out looking with this kid so he is on sell as soon as I see him spark off. With that said is there anyone deep pitchers I should keep my eye on in the wavier pool. I know you can see it, but hit me with your thoughts anyway.

I have him in a few leagues as well, he was worth the risk if he fell later in drafts. I would sell high as well, I agree on the surgery coming soon. In a ten man league you should be able to find a handful of guys to possibly grab. I picked up Clay Buchholz yesterday morning, he will be a guy I hold onto and use in only certain matchups. Edinson Volquez, Jesse Hahn, Matt Shoemaker, AJ Burnett are some guys as well.

Solid roster, but I'm a little concerned about the bullpen. I like Zunino's upside, but in a 10-team league, I'd be interested to know who is available. It feels like you might be able to do a little better. You have a nice mix of offensive stats. I don't see any glaring statistical holes. Circling back to the bullpen, a 10 team league will provide plenty of chances to upgrade from Nathan should he falter or someone emerge as a closer elsewhere. As long as you stay active, you have a decent foundation to begin with.
