My own analysis:
I said I wouldn't do it but I went pitching early. I ended up with a pretty dood pitching staff. I don't know how Ray will pan out. I was targeting Valverde with that pick. I might drop Papelbon for Reitsma, Burgos, or Duchsherer...any advice on either of these 3?? Oh, Bedard is also still available on the WW too.
Since I went pitching early, my hitters lack a little power. Berkman/Giambi/Matsui/Chavez and too a certain extent Gibbons should get me some HR/RBI. But I feel I am lacking a little in those cats. Also if you look at my hitters avg from last year, it's not that great. I think I have enough speed with Figgins supplemented by Baldelli/Granderson/Kinsler.
I will probably have excess 3B with Chavez/Namah/Huff. Maybe trade bait for later...
How did I do?? Any suggestions for improvement??
