I would say your team is very average right now. Your pitching is better than your offense, but you really need another reliable closer to really contend, as I find you rarely lose the saves category when you carry three closers. As for your offense, you have a lot of power guys but no real high average hitter. I would try a two for one deal to pick up a high average, base stealer. Anything is possible if your team gets hot, but right now I would say you need a few tweaks to be a contender.

Depending on your setup..I'd have Tulo starting and not on your bench (if you can only play one SS you've got a nice backup...but might try and trade Tulo off for some additional power). Same might go for Andrus 04-21-2009 01:33 PM

This really looks like what happens when a prospector plays fantasy baseball. Way too many young players that are what if's? This team would have a chance at being dominate in a couple of years but you are just going to have way too many rough stretches from these young guys. Good luck and the most important thing is HAVE FUN with it!
