This team looks a little more balanced than their NL LABR team. They took a couple risks with Delmon Young, Matt Laporta, BJ Upton and Eric Byrnes. They are counting on Upton and Weiters to hit better in 2010 than they did in 2009. Justin Smoak and Michael Taylor are cheap and could easily outperform their draft day salaries should they play regularly in 2010.

I like his two corner guys-Longoria and Butler. I can see Butler approaching 30 HRs in 2010.

I like their pitching staff with Verlander and Peavy leading the way. Peavy may not pitch like he did in San Diego, but he still has ace stuff and is a competitor. If healthy, Harden should provide a nice ERA and WHIP.
