Yeah, it would be nice if Tom Terrific vanished... There are still some pretty good players available for exclusives...

For this league, that's an incedible rotation... I see that as a way over .500 team.
I second len's take. That's a monster pitching staff for a league like this. My team won't be close to those WHIPs and the offense should give you enough runs to win with your good pitching.
lol, I hope so but I am not so optimistic. Alot of my pitchers are from 1968 and I am leary about the pitching in that year. I have a team that's all 1968 players in another league and other than Bob Gibson having a barely decent year (11-7, 3.39 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 175 innings) my pitching sucks (Luis Tiant and Denny McClain combined are 12-25, 4.50+ ERA, 58 HRA in 347 innings). And another team in the league has all 1969 players and their pitching is worse. So it may look good on paper but we'll see how they really pan out. I may still try to put together a power hitting team with softball pitchers. ;-)

I'm going on record and stating that if my pitching performs remotely well, I think I have a shot to play .500 ball with the squad below.

Frazz, you have a shot at winning 120 with that team.

I think you are overestimating, but I felt pretty good about them to be honest.

I went a little light on IP because of Petco -- even though a number of other teams will be in high octane stadiums  -- as I have a very solid defense behind fairly solid pitchers in a ballpark that doesn't allow runs. I don't figure this league will play like a normal $80m league, so I figure I can get probably around 15% more IP from my pitcher over RL as opposed to the standard 10%. 

I didn't really pay attention to the IP of each pitcher as I was drafting them, I went solely by OAV#/WHIP#/HR/9#+... I only made one exception to that rule, taking the '88 Moore instead of the '85 based on performance history. So, this will be an interestingly set up rotation and bullpen, but a strong one.

My defense is solid, especially for my home stadium, and my offense is about standard for the era. I do have more triples than I would've guessed from a team in the fairly modern era, and I have a few legit speed and power threats. Plus, Even though it is griffin's worst season, he normalizes excellent with AVG+/OBP+/SLG+ all at or above 110, so his # slash looks like .269/.347/.369. Which, when you factor in his defense, makes him a great selection.

My first five hitters (Griffin, Bradley, Reynolds, Paciorek, Davis) will do well, it's my 6 hitter (Presley) and my two platoons at SS (Owen, Milbourne, Tartabull) and C (Valle, Bradley, Cochrane) that I worry about offensively. Though the 3rd part of both of those should make great PHers!
Well, who'd ever have thought that a team from here would be doing so well!? I know I'm jinxing myself, but at this point I don't care, I'm just happy to have made it this far:
