Love your infield, even in a 10 team league it is stacked. To me, your outfield is a bit of a weakness (although every team has one). Pierre will be solid, I like him to return to hitting .300, he'll still get his steals, and should score 100 runs hitting in front of Lee & Ramirez. Floyd is too much of an injury risk to me and Giles is clearly in decline. Hafner makes up for a lack of pop in your outfield, but I'd still look to upgrade for some more power there. You also have a lot of upside on your bench, which I like to see.

You have three solid closers that will certainly keep in contention in saves and help you out in other categories. Your pitching isn't as solid as, say your infield for a 10 teamer, but still strong. You will rack up plenty of K's with that rotation. Since you are in a shallow league keep your eye on the wire and if Radke &/or Lowe stumble early don't be afraid to cut them loose and pick up a better option.

CMON guys...you really think this guy actually drafted that team !?!?

i just want to know where exactly did you draft
i assume you picked 1 2 or 3 and took pujols.
the draft then did not come back around to you until at least the 21st pick where im assuming you STOLE mike young and then took wright
but then you had to wait another 22 to 23 pick where you got utley and hafner??
and where did you get zamrano? or hernandez? in the 70's?????
what about ryan and turnbow ? in the 90's??
this doesnt seem real to me....
and if it is....you probably traded with yourself in your own customized league with 2 teams.
if its a public league i now pronounce you the greatest fantasy team of this year!!! number 1 overall.
again....i'd hate to call you a liar...but prove me wrong please.
peace

I Totally agree with you, unless ur league is full of dumb*sses then its impossible to draft a team like that
if its a public league i now pronounce you the greatest fantasy team of this year!!! number 1 overall.
again....i'd hate to call you a liar...but prove me wrong please.

I did draft this team! There was one trade. I was offered Travis Hafner for Carlos Lee. The other team offered, I couldn't pass it up. Everyone loaded up on pitchers and outfielders like crazy. Somehow Zambrano fell through the cracks (and a few others).

Trust me. I have never played fantasy baseball before. I wouldn't know how to cheat if I could.

Here is how I drafted. I had the 2nd pick.

Round 1 - Albert Pujols
Round 2 - Michael Young
Round 3 - Chase Utley
Round 4 - Carlos Zambrano
Round 5 - David Wright
Round 6 - Carlos Lee (Traded for Travis Hafner)
Round 7 - Brian Giles
Round 8 - Juan Pierre
Round 9 - BJ Ryan
Round 10 - Felix Hernandez
Round 11 - Ramon Hernandez
Round 12 - Derrick Turnbrow
Round 13 - John Patterson
Round 14 - Prince Fielder
Round 15 - Derek Lowe
Round 16 - Cliff Floyd
Round 17 - Mike Gonzalez
Round 18 - Jonny Gomes
Round 19 - Shawn Green
Round 20 - Doug Davis
Round 21 - Delmon Young
Round 22 - Brad Radke
