    rate my team please

    The hitters are lacking in speed overall; you'll need to pick up a catcher until Mauer gets back in a couple weeks or so.

    I think Holliday is going to suffer some now that he's not in that thin air and in a park that punishes right-handed batters.

    Wells is due to have a decent year, and it helps that Aaron Hill is healthy in front of him. Crisp is a nice sleeper who gives you steals and will somehow do better on a poorer team. I like the Giambi pick, too, I think he'll have possibly his last very good year.

    Lineup: B- (lack of speed, a bench that's mostly "meh": Span is going to lose at-bats to Young and Kubel since they've been on fire this spring).

    Too many pitchers that are falling apart or on the decline. Harden's nice, but can't seem to pitch an entire season. Who knows what Dempster is going to do to follow up one of the best comeback years ever, and Pettite and Johnson just aren't what they used to be. Can they combine for 25 wins? If Johnson puts a few good starts together early in the season, trade him for something consistent.

    Good job with the closers.

    Pitching: C+

    A lot of things are going to have to go right for your team, from Tejada to Wells, who both need to return to form, to Pettite, Johnson and Harden staying healthy and consistent, to Dempster holding onto some of the magic from last year.

    I'd look at putting someone like Maholm or W.Rodriguez on your watch list in terms of SP's who might have quality seasons but will fly under the radar and come cheap in the first few weeks of the season as other managers might not know what they've got with them.
