      I agree with what's already been said. You really need to work trades, Targeting Go-Go would be a good start. You MUST start watching the WW now for pitchers. Especially RP. Read camp notes for any closer battles going unexpectedly. (Lindstrom is a good sleeper candidate with Chicago relying on a rookie so far)

      This is what comes of drafting Cutch in the first round...

    • Your whole pitching staff is pretty terrible. I like potential, but you need a few veteran pitchers to anchor your staff. It looks like you have plenty of speed, so maybe trade Marte for a solid starter.

    • C and 1B are very bad. SS can be improved, and so can 2nd. You need elite bats to win. You lack players with power/speed combo which will be tough to keep going. Good speed though for the time being. Upton and Stanton should be traded as they have brutal averages and you can get a Carlos Gomez for them. Pitching is good, and if Garza pans out, it's great. Relievers are bad. Overall: 7.5-8
