Well, I guess there are some encouraging signs. Despite it appearing to be easy to get guys with pretty comparable "overall" ratings, the output from my Johnny Bench investment seems to be there.
Silver .328 2058
This league just wrapped... we won 106 games and advanced to the Gold level. Bench was among the top-5 in the whole league in both OBP and OPS, so that's good. And my Walter Johnson was among the top starting pitchers again - he's been solid while some of my other guys have been more of a variable.
