    I went a little pitching heavy, thinking the quantity over quality strategy might work best. As far as the offense goes, i think the Runs category will be where I have the most trouble.

    Re: Rate this team:

    are you intentionally punting saves? Runs may be an issue but not compared to saves unless both Gagne and Jones are replaced by Zumaya and Otsuka. I wouldn't be counting on that, so I'd definitely be shopping for a closer or 2
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Yeah, I was at the back end of the draft and guys started snatching up closers before I usually like to, so by the time it came back around to me I felt I'd cede saves and see if I could go for something as far as trades went.

    SP may be too young as well! Looks like you have some power. I would be tempted to put Rios on the bench and go with Young or even Upton if he plays everyday. Upton can give you SBs.
