      • You are exceptionally strong in the OF, although I'd say bye to Carlos Lee and pick up De Aza, Cespedes or Upton. Dump Gardner fast and say bye to Prado.. Try to nail Aaron Hill or better yet a second catcher in Santana (go for Santana first). Your pitching is your weak spot. McDonald, cahill and usually Halliday are winners. Lillyhas been hurt and you have questions on whether Capuano, Holland and Yohan can at the very least match their first halves. The top four starters you list on the available list are worth the gambles and one or two will come through. But expect to stream for pitchers each week or trade for an ace or two. Your pen is weak but with saves being the only real stat accorded to RP's you should be able to get away with it, although I'd get one more. Watch out for Capps. He is good, but today's report said he felt some tenderness again. Could be a warning sign. Hope this helps/
