your OF and SP looks pretty week. I'd trade Zito for an OF first. Are guys like Cabrera and Bedard available?

Don't worry, your team could be a lot worse. Definitely deal Zito for an outfielder. Watch the waiver wires for some unexpected season starters with some potential and keep an eye on them. And don't give up on your squad; you got some good picks in there.

First of all, don't take any offense at this. Since you're worried about your team I'll tell you my opinion straight up.

I think you overreached on a lot of your picks after the 4th round. Garland, Taveras, Rowand, Zito, Young, and Swisher were all taken too early, in my opinion.

As for your team, I think your main problem is your outfield. A lot of question marks out there after Crisp.

But having said all that, if your pitching comes through, Garland and Zito repeat their #'s, Cain is the real deal, and Young improves in that big ballpark in SD, you should have a very competitive team.

YOUR TEAM BLOWS!!! j/k.. :-D ...Love your picks from 1-6. You got all potential first rounders in your first 3 picks. That being said like others I think your OF and SP is a little weak. I'd look to sell high on Zito and Lane/Swisher for an underrated SP like Escobar, Lackey, Oliver Perez, and a OF like Huff or Edmonds. Its risky, but you need to make them to be competitive for the top.
