How do I look?

You've got a pretty good team. But I'd keep looking at the free agents for an outfielder who's going to have a breakout season. Your 3 outfielders all have very high potential, but I doubt all 3 will live up to it - Edmunds is always injured, Sheffield hasn't been consistent the last couple years, and Burrells strike outs could hurt him.

I agree that you could use another closer - are Jimenez or Nunez available? Also keep an eye on Embree, German, and Villafuerte. But you've got good SP and a good infield. Keep an eye on the free agents for a better shortstop, but Renteria's still better than most.

I'll give you a big pointer from my experience last season. Let Lowell play in your team during the first half of the season (if he has a first half like last year). However, after the all star break, when his value is high trade him. He tends to drop off "severely" toward the end of the season. I am a Florida Marlin fan, so, I know his trends....If you trade him after the all star break while his value is still high, you'll get a good return for him. If you wait too long, you'll still get good value but not as good as while he's hot....
Your Sp's are pretty strong (Tomo Okha will surprise you) and you have one of the premier closers in the game....
The rest of your lineup is pretty stacked in my view....
