Not to be picky but if would be a lot easier to judge the teams if they were shown as the roster and not the order picked.

Mookie - You can't ever go wrong with Pujols. I do think he needs some more power. Pujols and A-Ram are the only ones on the team I'd expect 30+ HR from.

Flux - For going SP the first 2 rounds his offense isn't that bad. The Nick Johnson pick in the 12th was a bad idea. Barrett in the 18th was a good idea.

Swiper - SB should be a real strenght with Reyes and Roberts. BA is going to be weak with Glaus, Cameron, and Chavez.

Vaderfin - Power and RBI are going to be a real problem. Needs the Bonds of old to reappear. SP and SB are very solid.

Amazing - I really don't like the SP. The offense is really nice maybe a little light on the SB. You are going to need a lot of DL spots with this crew.

Mercer - Favorite team. I really like this team all-around. The offense is well-rounded and the SP/RP have a lot of upside.

Kent - The offense is good and you have closers coming out of your ears. Smoltz, Hamels, Wainwright rotation is high risk/reward.

Marver - Solid team. I especially like the picks later in the draft. You bucked SB but got 3 really big threats later on. Out of the 7 SP you should have a good rotation. A 2nd closer would be nice.

Warpigs - Plenty of power but low on the SB. Also needs a 2nd closer.

Tavish - Least favorite team. BA should be strong and you have 4 closers. The SP is very suspect and a case could be made that a lot of the offense played over their heads last year.

Cuna - The HR/RBI seems weak to me. And did you only draft 3 SP, Peavy, Willis and Prior? A 2nd closer would be nice.

Rump - 2nd favorite. There are a lot of risks here but I really like the team. The offense and SP could be powerhouses.

Well here's mine... :-)

C B. McCann
1B N. Swisher
2B M. Giles
3B A. Rodriguez
SS M. Young
OF J. Bay
OF A. Jones
OF J. Damon
UT F. Thomas

B N. Garciaparra
B M. Ensberg
B K. Lofton

First move I made after waivers cleared was to drop B. Giles, my 20th pick, and grab K. Lofton. I am weak on SB, Lofton should help. The displacement of SB is very top-heavy in this league so I am "good enough" there for the moment. I may have to adjust during the year depending on trades and stuff.

SP Je. Weaver
SP R. Harden
SP J. Patterson
SP D. Bush
SP T. Hudson
SP C. Wang

CL J. Putz
CL B. Jenks

I realize this rotation won't blow anyone away but it's my type of rotation. All healthy and it gets me to the middle of the pack across the board, maybe higher, and I should have enough production elsewhere to patch it up via trade if need be.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
