I thought i drafted a pretty good team but i am faltering somewhat early on so far... Probably no cause for panic cuz theres room for early-season slumps, but i just wanted to know peoples opinions on weaknesses and possible improvement. Thx a lot

You need more steals

Your pitching has a very good balance. Kudos on that.

As far as the hitting, I don't see anyone in your lineup who has the potential to steal 30 or more bases. Damon might, but his recent numbers seem to indicate otherwise.

If I were you, try to package Affeldt and a closer to get a guy like Sanchez, Dave Roberts, or Corey Patterson or you can pick up a guy like Luis Matos, Brian Roberts, or D'Angelo Jimenez off the waiver wire.

You need more steals for sure, but look at your infield, no wonder you're not doing well right now.

Huff, Tejada, Chavez, Kent all started off lame!

nothing to worry about. They'll come around. You do need some speed though.
