So I was able to upgrade my team a bit. I managed to get strike a deal with a manager that is iffy about Pujols' knee and is a Jays fan. The trade was Kinsler and Romero for Pujols. I Know, kind of a steal hey. With me getting an empty roster spot, I may pick up either Micheal Young to cover my infield or Sergio Santos to help with saves early in the season.
Assuming this a 12 team H2H league- your team is very, very good. For a 10 team it is solid but not stacked. I'm not nuts about napoli at 1B so I would look to upgrade there and live with a weaker backup to Wieters,
Why are Strasburg and Shields on your bench?
You need another closer, probably grab a FA RP with a shot to be closer now and drop him if another FA pitcher gets a closer job.
Trade a 2B for a backup 3B and a 1B so if Longoria gets hurt you don't have to replace him off FA.
First,i need to know how many teams there are
but looking at your team,i think that it is probably a 8,10 or a 12 team league and I dont think Napoli should be your starting 1B.I would probably package one of your 2B and P for a top 1B and some depth in any position.I like your starting pitchers but I think Romero is a little shaky.other than that you have very solid pitchers.I like your RP too,cause they are both solid closers and you can probably pick one or two up as the season goes along.Oh,and forgot to add,i think you need a little more speed so you should pick up a cheap player from FA that has 25+ SBs.
d'Arnaud,Matt Moore and Street for Encarnancion and Homer Bailey

You need another closer otherwise you may as well punt on saves - and go with all SP. Somebody like Fujikawa may be on the WW and you could just drop a SP for him. 2 Closers in H2H is almost always a lost category but with 3 you can at least compete for that cat.
