    I'd grade this team a "C"..

    If Lincecum was your 2nd round pick,that was a bad move.Because though he was awesome last year,you could of picked 2 pitchers later

    that combined,would've out produced him in wins+Ks..This is one of the oldest tricks in fantasy baseball; More mid tier pitchers are better then fewer top tier pitchers..(Obviously you'd have less offensive back ups.) If this is a 5x5 league,you should try to be strong in 6 categories.

    (Winning 6 categories will win you the championship!)

    Don't worry about the other 4 categories,they don't matter.Because if

    you try to be strong in all 10 categories,you wont dominate any of them...And domination is what fantasy sports is all about!

    I've won 4 of my last 6 leagues focusing on HOMERS,RUNS,RBIs,

    WINS,Ks,and SAVES...If I win WHIP,ERA,SBs,and BATTING AVERAGE it's just a bonus.Whip,era,and batting average are too reliant on a group of players,and the weakest link often nullifies what the stronger links produce..In other words Mclellan and W.Rodriguez can screw up Lincecums' good outtings..I would not pay (draft) for a big name pitcher for this reason.Stolen bases would be OK to focus on,but I highly reccomend you not to hang your hat on whip,era,or

    batting average.

    I think you have trouble with your RP's. I don't see a lot of saves there.
