This is my team in a 5x5 head-to-head league with 12 teams. We will have three bench spots which will be filled with free agents, not by the draft. Note that all nine pitcher spots can be starters or relievers. Yes, I know I only have one closer but I usually pick up closers that emerge in the beginnning of the season and don't bother spending draft picks on them.

Thanks for the advice!

Felix has the stuff to be a #1, but I wouldn't classify him as one. He is too unproven and too green.

I do think he will have a solid year, but I wouldn't bank my team on him being my #1 starter.

I like your offense, although I would prefer a more solid option at first base, and a younger OF on a better team than Gonzalez.

I worry about your pitching staff. I'm in a 14 team league, and Felix is only my #3/4. I also feel like Shelton is weak at 1B. I like your OF. If I were you, I'd try to shore up my pitching a bit.

I think my pitching is very good, 1-4. They're not big established names but I think they're all primed to have very good years. I'll be really good in K's, but I might need some help in wins. I really don't bother using high draft picks on pitching. Good pitchers always emerge during the season.

Felix, Lowry, and Kazmir have huge upside. I'm a little worried about that you have no proven stars on your staff.

while i agree with you, i dont see the point of having izzy on your team. 12 teams h2h, i dont see you ever winning saves with just one closer. id take the risk and punt saves. Ship off izzy and one of your middle teir starters for an ace.
