ocab at ss is the only weakness i see but you have troy as a back up which could be good... not a team i would complain about.. Very solid 9rounds to start off...

I was planning on going SDrew in the 9th round on the way back. He was picked about 3 picks in front of me. At that point, I held off on a SS until OCab was still available in the 15th. Couldn't resist the pick for the value.

Any other opinions?

I really, really like your pitching but I say maybe try to use one of your bench pitchers as trade bait for maybe a better SS

what strikes me with your team is the places at which you took players. Some were reaches but some were just bargains at their pick

the biggest one to me is Jose Lopez

Jose Lopez with the 280th or so pick in a keeper league is just a steal imo

another one I like would be Lyle Overbay in the end of the 18th. The R/H/HR/RBI/BA/OPS should be there, but I do admit that his value skyrockets if 2B is a stat but still should give you 20-90-.290 for a UTL its very nice.

I really like the rest of your hitting bench. Iwamura in the end of the 21st is really a risk/reward type pick that could just completley come backto win the league for you but it won't loose it for your because he is on your bench but he could give you anywhere between 15 HR - 30 HR with anywhere between 75 RBI to 110 RBI and I really beleive you can expect very Lyle Overbayish style numbers.

I also really like the Tulowitzki pick in the end of the 23rd is also a good keeper pick if he can develop of a power stroke. I really don't like the Alou pick because of the age factor and the ammount of competition in that OF.

I also think you reached for a few other guys including Magglio, Konerko, Roberts but I think you really made up for it with some smart drafting and I think this is a top 5 team.

Nice draft

Tulo is a solid player for power but i question his BA. Solid balanced team, if you could package both of your ss for an upgrade i'd try that but i doubt anyone would bite on a blatant upgrade for quantity.
