C- Wilin Rosario
1B-Goldy
2B- Howie K
3B- Aramis Ramirez
SS- JJ hardy
MI- Jeter
CI- Hosmer
OF- McCutch
OF-Choo
OF-Rios
OF-Pence
OF- Brandon Moss
UTL- Will MiddleBrooks

SP- Verlander
SP-Clff Lee
SP-Cobb
SP-Tim Hudson
SP- Maholm
RP- Romo, Holland, Madson, Pestano, Storen, Valverde......

I drafted from the 6 hole, got Cutch, was happy with that, Verlander fell all the way to me in the 2nd round, i couldn't resist, took him, then Goldy in the 3rd...... Cliff Lee was my 4th rounder so I waited on starters for a long time after going with the unplanned 2 starters in my first 4 picks. Whats your thoughts on my team?

Not alot available on waivers. I'm not a big fan of my MI players but you can't be strong everywhere!

Lay it on me.....

You don't have any depth on either side. Maybe turn lee or Verlander into two slightly less sp. You offensive depth isn't great either.

Ha brash.

Well pitching wise I'm not really worried. I can stream pitching, and 60 starts from cliff lee and verlander will be 33% of my pitching needs. I have pretty big expectations of Cobb. There's always a "lance Lynn" or "smyly" or "fiers" on the wire i can snag and ride til they fizzle.

Offensively I'm confused. I thought I was pretty solid there. I figured my OF was about as good as anyones, maybe the best, my corner guys Goldy/Hosmer could be HUGE, and if I can get a healthy year outta Aramis.... IDK we all view things differently, i guess I wasn't expecting "you're weak everywhere" hahahah......

thanks for the opinion tho, i'd like some others.....

I think Verlander might've messed up your hitting... You have 5 weak spots on hitting -- Hardy, Jeter, Moss, Middlebrooks and Howie... Some of those guys might be good, but chances of them all is tough... Your backend starters aren't great either... You really didn't need Lee after taking Verlander...

grey says 5 weak spots on hitting, i say Hardy 25 HR ss, Howie and middlebrooks all upside and can be huge..... it's all how you look at it, now jeter, he's injured, probably gonna be on the DL and in general very BLEH..... but I can drop him in a hot min for the flavor of the week.... and if the flavor is delicious I stick with it.

I'm usually an ALL OFFENSE guy, but then i alwaysssss come up short on pitching, so I went with some pitching this year, i guess we'll see how it turns out, and there's always trades to be made and players to be picked off of waivers.

Thanks guys.
