If team B grabs a solid MR like Team A did, hten I'll definately go with team B. The offenses are pretty even (but I still may go with Team B by a little bit), but I like team B's pitching more. They have better SP's and a more solid bullpen. I just think team B is better all-around.

Again, team B (if it's you) should grab a MR because Gonzalez and Gordon will definately help Team A and team B needs the counter that.

I'll take Team B

Team A doesn't have a good closer and doesn't have as good SP as Team B

Offense is pretty close

I think it will be close but I will take Team B

And as far as MR go, you should be able to get one in the FA pool who will be comarable to Gordon or Gonzalez, there are always good ones out there early on.

team b's starting pitching just overwhelms A's...
i also like team b's closers better than team a's
the offenses are close, but i like team b's there by a little margin as well......

Clearly Team B. Team A pitching is pretty weak.
