I think that you're in trouble. A player by player rundown.
Varitek C -Solid if unspectacular.
Lee, D. 1B -Avg but only if he can repeat the steals from last year
Alomar, R. 2B - Fine. No longer a top option, but he's bound to do better than last year
Hernandez, J. SS - Solid, but not great. We'll see, though. Coors could dramatically help him. He has probs with the breaking ball and Coors limits the effect of the breaking ball, so he could be a steal.
Glaus 3B - Solid. Aside from Pujols and Chavez, the top 3b option.
Abreu OF - Nice. Especially if he can get some power back.
Beltran OF - I've got problems with him. He's going to be traded this year. His home away splits are awful. A solid 3rd round pick, but I suspect you chose him before that.
Sheffield OF - Nice. He's one of the few players that I believe will do better in a contract year. He's a jerk, but he can hit.
Johnson SP - Nothing to say.
Wolf SP - Nice #2.
Nomo SP - He'll help you in Ks, though he is getting a little long in the tooth.
Lackey SP - Could be good, could sophmore slump.
Moss SP - His K/BB ratio scares the hell out of me.
Benitez RP - His value depends on whether the Mets can score some runs this year.
Jimenez RP - Okay, but a pitcher from Coors
Palmiero Utility - Nice. He's always a steal.
Olerud Utility - Not bad. He's never going to flirt w/.400 again, but a nice backup.
Ibanez Outfield - Something about him screams fluke to me, but his multi-position eligablity makes up for that risk.
Nixon Bench - He's bulked up and has lost bat speed. I'd avoid him like the plague.
Overall, not bad. I'd try to get a little more pitching depth, see if you can't find another closer. Your infield needs work, but I could see this team finishing 4th out of 10 or so.
