Looks like a LIMA to me too.

For the record, you could start up to two starting pitchers per night because you have the SP and then the regular P position.

I would try to stick to drafting from one team if possible... that way you will never have overlap days with your pitchers.

Oakland would be a good choice, with Zito, Harden, Haren, Loaiza and Blanton. Seems like you could swing that without making much sacrifice... although with a 20 team draft, it's tough to know.

I guarantee, though, you will gain an edge if you can guarantee that none of your guys are pitching on the same day. SF might be another team to look at if you use this strat.

I think you did pretty well for a twenty team league! Especially on the hitting side. Three good closers, a decent K/9 SP some sleeper starters, and you will always be able to pick up some good relievers off the wire. I think your hitting will carry you through the season. Travis Hafner is huge in this league. He will give you zero errors, and great offensive numbers, too.
