Fairly nice team, but I think it could use some work that's for sure. I would be looking to trade Mark Teixeira because of his name value, even he admitted just a short time ago that his best days are behind him. http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb...4953--mlb.html
Beyond that, are you prepared to trust Colby Rasmus and Carlos Gomez as starters? I wouldn't be, but you do have Ellsbury on your bench so I'm sure he will slot in there. Moreland by no means is even fantasy relevant right now, I'd be looking to drop him. If someone needs a catcher, you're in good hands with both JP and Salty. I'd advise moving Salty of the two.
Your pitching is pretty solid, could you give me a list of free agents? There might be a few under the radar guys like Wily Peralta available for example. Plus I'm sure there are some good hitters out there as well.
