C - Pierzynski
1B - Berkman (1B, OF) up: 300+/40HR
2B - Figgins (2B, 3B, OF) Lots of SB, pos flexibility, runs
3B - Chavez
SS - Crosby
OF - Matsui
OF - Huff (1B, OF, 3B soon) - more comfy at 3B, return to 2004 #s ??
OF - Baldelli - good ST so far
Util - Giambi - huge 2nd half
BN - Nomah (SS, 3B, 1B soon) - 14th rd steal, read the sleeper article here!!!
BN - Gibbons (OF, 1B) - Shandler is real high on him
BN - Granserson (OF) - possible 20/20 with .290
BN - Kinsler (SS, 2B soon) - Back up 2B/SS, try the lid out

SP - Santana
SP - Harden
RP - Nathan
RP - Ray
P - Lackey
P - Blanton - Shandler high on him
P - Lowe - grt ST so far
BN - Papelbon - if Foulke is hurting, he closes???

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??

12 team league, I take it?

I think your assessment is an accurate one. You have a well balanced team, but you power is lacking a bit. The perils of drafting Johan in the first round and all.

I love Bedard, personally. I'd drop Kinsler for him.

Overall, I think you did ok.
Everything you know is wrong.

Thanks for the advice lifeform.

Does anyone else have any opinions on this team??

Should I drop Papelbon for Reitsma/Burgos or Bedard??

Should I drop one of my bench (Granderson/Baldelli/Kinsler) for Gathright??

You can drop Papelbon. I'm not sure he closes if Foulke goes down.
Burgos could get 25 saves.

Don't be afraid to drop Lowe either. I haven't seen great projections for him.

Re. Gathright, you look pretty set on steals, but I might drop Kinsler for Gathright and then try to deal Gathright to a team who needs steals and has a surplus of power.

Thanks for the tips lcfiore.

I'm going to do the following waiver claims...

Bedard for Paps
Duchsherer for Kinsler

If one of these does not go through (The 2 day waiver period after the draft ends tomorrow) then I will pick up Gathright and try to trade for more power later.

Any other comments on this roster??

Personally, I'd hold on to Kinsler, but I'm unusually high on the kid. Nice balance in the lineup. I think Baldelli's going to do great, I'd have loved to have picked him, but I just missed.

I'd also have picked up Burgos instead of Bedard. Don't be surprised if he holds onto the KC closer job.

Thanks for the tip charlatan. I think I'll take a wait and see approach with Kinsler.
