Jurrjens, and you read Razzball? How dare you! Yeah, the team looks solid (except for Jurrjens). Very strong pitching, a tad stronger than you need, which has hurt the hitting a bit. You have a bunch of steals, don't think Bourjos makes sense on this team. Overall the team does look competitive though...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Jurrjens had an xFIP of 4.23 last year and a near 6 k/9. Sure he overperformed, but I'm not sure where I'd go for another solid bench pitcher. Maybe I should have drafted another closer instead? Maybe another middle infielder like Cozart?

Imagine Jurrjens has a good start like he had last year. I could probably swap him and Bourjos for an above average OF. And it's h2h... the great Razzball told me to draft lots of pitchers.

Idono.

Right... Instead of Lester, I could have gone with Phillips. Maybe I could propose that trade.

Draft pitchers I like.
