$260 budget, the starting postions is the entire roster there. We are doing a bench draft this week on our message board.
Bah, humbug.

I think catcher is a real weakness, Schneider is one of the very-worst hitting starters, and Zaun is a backup.

I think Lowe/Escobar/Lieber at $1 each are great value. Pujols seems overpaid, but Vladi is a bargain. I'm not at all sure Moose is worth $6.

Speed seems to be a bit of a weakness, though you do a good spread of guys who'll chip in.

Thanks. I definitely know I overpaid for Pujols, but I have a bit of a man crush on him, so I'm okay with it. As far as catchers, the reason I drafted Zaun, is cause I figured he wouldn't hurt me in BA, like most catchers do, and he'll probably still get 300 AB.

As far as speed, I don't have a real burner, but the same guy bought (and overpaid for all of them, I think) Figgins, Ichiro, Rollins, and Pierre, so there wasn't a lot of speed left to go around. I'm hoping my guys can get me middle of the pack in steals, and I should dominate the rest of the hitting categories.
Bah, humbug.

Vlad was a steal at that price. I like your overall balance. Agree that Catcher needs to be dealt with. Pujols was prices but with the value you got on Vlad who cares. Your pitching is solid. I see you doing well this year.

Yes i think you should have forgot about Pujols and used that money one making your depth slightly better. Catcher's are usually weak on teams, but your's are pretty useless in a twelve teamer. So id look to upgrade their somehow. Pujols shouldnt be 14 dollars more then Vlad. But yea the man crush thing. Im not a big man of Cliff Lee. I think you could have done better on pitching. I like Smoltz and you got him for a good price. i DONT like Mussina and you should have used the 6 on someone else. Like Aaron Heilman, Matt Cain or w/e. I think you could have used better balance in a 12 teamer personally, but it is a solid team. Id worry about your pitching a little.

Wow, this team looks stacked to me. Is it one of those leagues where multiple teams can have the same player?

No, everyone has $260 to spend to fill their roster and once a player is bought, he's off the board.
Bah, humbug.

Johnny Estrada didn't get picked up. Would you drop one of my catchers for him? Which catcher would you drop?
Bah, humbug.
