    I think that's a pretty solid team. It kinda depends on how the season plays out now.

    I think your team is very solid. It is hard to say for sure though since we don't know how many teams are in your league. Nor do we know the starting positions, innings limit or if daily transactions are allowed.

    That is one horrendously awful scoring system.

    Your scoring system seems to favor power hitters, base stealers and closers. Your team might be a little weak on power, but is good for pitching.

    I think you have a great team. Liriano should have a great year. I think you're a little weak on the pitching side. This team could win lots of leagues.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    He has more pitching than most fantasy teams. Bedard, Harang, and a healthy Liriano is better than most any team. I guess you could say he has no SP depth though, that I could agree on.

    Then he has 5 solid closers as well.

    I also like that he has Kemp and Gordon on the bench. They both could explode this year and allow others to become trade chips.

    I would guess that this is a 10 team league. There seems to be to many studs throughout the lineup for it to be 12 teams.
    Matta = Really good

    I didn't see Bedard as I went down the list, but your point is well taken. B.J. Ryan is probably going to get hurt. Jones and Isringhausen are fossils. Capps is very underrated though. I also agree that he doesn't have much depth. If Liriano or another starter can't play for a portion of this year, you're really going to take a hit.
