C- Very good.
1B- There has to be better options than Jackson. 1B is very deep, even for 14 teams. Who's on FA?
2B- Good.
3B- Great.
SS- Great.
CI- Very Good.
MI- Good.
OF- Very risky. You need a better hitter to stabilize your outfield. I don't believe in Gomes, Rocco is coming off an injury, and Hermida is a rook. This is your first big need. Hafner makes up for some of the lack of depth here, but I'd still look to improve.


SP- Decent, but I wouldn't feel comfortable with Felix as my ace. Try to move for a better #1, or at least someone else on Felix's level, so you have two number 2 type guys (Schmidt, Buehrle?).

RP= Decent, though I don't think Weathers will keep the job. Keep your eye out on the WW for closer pickups throughout the season.

Overall, nice team for a 14 team league. With some key pickups, you could be a definate contender. Good luck.

I like picks 1(Young), 2(Wright), and 4(Hafner) particularly in the early rounds especially considering the depth of your league. Felix is exciting and I can see why you grabbed him. Nathan was a fantastic pick at 5. Lopez was and efficient pick. At that point in the draft Gomes was probably a worthy pick.

Nice team. I'm not big on Felipe Lopez or Fransisco Cordero but other than that youve got a good offense and a solid pitching staff.

Good job. Like others have mentioned, you might have trouble with Jackson, tough to rely on youngsters. But I think you had a nice draft, keep scanning the WW for a 1B.

See mine please

Pick up Delmon Young. Unbelievable he went undrafted, especially in this deep of a league.

I would also pickup Reyes and Cabrera.

yup, my 1B options are an eyesore, my league went early on 1Bs... by the time I drafted Conor Jackson, guys like Tony Clark and Ben Broussard (to name a few) were already drafted ahead of Conor...

I waited too long to get a 1B, but even if I stand pat, I don't think it'll affect my team's overall potential over the long haul.

Anthony Reyes is an intriguing prospect for my team, but I'm pondering whether or not I should wait until I can put Pavano on DL to free up a spot for Reyes.

You need to address 1B and SP the most.

You have a wonderful bargining chip in either S. Rolen or D. Wright. You might want to see how Rolen starts the season. He could increase in value with a fast start.

You made a good choice not to draft 1b and SP. The two deepest positions in the draft, it should be easy to fashion a trade. Someone will really want Rolen. Should be able to land a top notch SP or 1b with him.

I agree with Bronx Bombers comment about OF. Its a high risk group. RF is particularly shallow, making the pickup of D Young all the better, as he is likely to RF for TB. Drop Nady to get him. You've got a lot of flexibility in the OF already.

If Delmon Young is out there, then pick him up...hold him for awhile and once the hype builds you can ship him off for a 1B, or play him and ship one of your other OFs out.
