Beltre and Francoeur are question marks. Beltre has 1 good season then falls of drastically and pitchers started to figure out Francoeur but overall you look like you could be in good shape. See if you can get a good bat for Webb/Haren

Your team is balanced. I see the same questionmarks as Pedrofan. Beltre, except for that one year, has had a horrible average. Hopefully he bounces back. With Francoeur, I always worry about the 2nd year. Thats where you find out what they are really made of. You have Green, in case he doesn't pan out, but you could probably use another outfielder, in case he starts out in a slump. Pedrofan has the right idea. Good luck!

Love Wilkerson, he will hit close to 40--mark my words. Lefties hit 30-50% more homers in Texas. In Montreal (last year doesn't count as Wilkerson had thumb injuries that sapped power) he had 30 so...Love the pitching staff too. Extremely well balanced.

Your offense is balanced but not that good. You have pichers with good upsie but depends if they pan out but you have saves locked up pretty good team for 12 person drafy

i like my pitching top to bottom. Beltre didn't come until rnd 12, and was the only option left. Francoeur was my reach at 13. i'm hoping my offensive balance and strong pitching will keep me close and that Beltran, Beltre, Wilkerson, and Francoeur will have big years. Should i swing a trade? i'd be willing to trade Webb or Haren for maybe a big bat.

thanks for the help.

for a 12 team league, i like your roster a lot. with that many teams it can't be perfect everywhere, but you come fairly close.

i too see francoeur and beltre as liabilities, but i dont know that there is anything you can do about it now. if you can trade Webb for a solid replacement i'd be all over that. Haren i'm a little high on, not sure what he would bring in a trade. But you can afford to let one of them go for the right person, your pitching is young but quality. overall great 5x5 offensive production, congrats

Beltre plays in seattle and he has been having a difficult time getting over the fence. It is a pitchers park here in the northwest.
Should swing a trade.

I actually like your team. There are some gambles (Francour, Beltre, Beltran), but they could end up being bargins for where I'm sure you drafted them.

offense is rather weak. you lack power with Teixeira realy being the only good power hitter on the team. Your starters are pretty good. A healthy Ben Sheets could be one of the best starters in the game this year. Closers look ok though im not too sure what reitsma will do with the role this year.
