Please let me know what you think of the team below. This league always has the the most ridiculous closer runs, hence my lacking. And I think I might be a little short on speed...

5x5 12-team Roto
6th pick in a snake draft
Number following player's name is the round I took them.

C Jorge Posada (16)
1B Justin Morneau (3)
2B Jeff Kent (12)
3B Adrian Beltre (14)
SS Derek Jeter (2)
IF Richie Sexson (8)
OF Alfonso Soriano (1)
OF Jermaine Dye (6)
OF Rocco Baldelli (7)
OF Jeff Francoeur (11)
UTIL Aubrey Huff (18)
UTIL Kevin Youkilis (24)
BN Howie Kendrick (15)
BN Shane Victorino (20)
BN Bengie Molina (25)

SP Roy Halladay (4)
SP Brandon Webb (5)

Thanks for your thoughts on mine. Here's how I rate your team:

1B--A: love Morneau, good depth here.

2B--B+: thin position. Kent is a toss up, though he continues to produce. Kendrick should put up .300+ and score between 75-90 runs.

3B--B: I'm not too high on Beltre, he'll never match his dream season again.

SS--A: can't go wrong with Jeter

OF--A-: not an A because of the risk. I like Soriano at the top, and Francour should be solid. Dye should be good, but I wouldn't bank on numbers like he put up in '06. Rocco could be huge, but he's a significant injury risk.

C--B+: bit of a wild card, Jorge seems to be fading, but could still produce. I like Bengie as a backup.

SP--A+: Love Halladay and Webb at the top. I think Schmidt and Contreras will improve over last year. I expect either a little backslide or similar numbers from Bronson. Lowry is a wildcard.

RP--B-: depending on your league, you need another CP. Keep an eye on the situations in Boston and Florida.

All in all, I think this is a solid squad, myself being a firm believer in SP's. Good luck!

Yeah, most of the guys you don't like I don't like either, but I got most of them at bargain prices. I don't think Dye will repeat either but he fell to the 6th where I thought he was easily better than the other options. I felt comfortable with Kent in the 12th and I have Kendrick as backup. I don't like Beltre either but he should be solid like you said and if not, I wound up with Huff and Youk as backup. And yeah, I definitely need another closer or two...as I said, this league has the most absurd closer runs and I couldn't bring myself to sell out. Thanks a lot for your analysis, it's pretty much in line with my own.

Other thoughts?

Kent and Beltre are your question marks, and of course, you need relief pitching. I think Hermanson will be getting the nod over Weathers in Cincy, so you may want to keep an eye out there. Also, if Wheeler is available, grab him in case Lidge continues to falter, as he has thought the spring.

I like a lot of your picks, and I'm happy to see your weakest at a position easy to fill on the wire if you're active (Closers).

But I don't think you're UTIL is good enough. I'd drop Molina in a second: there's no sense carrying two catchers when you could swing for the fences on a rookie OF who could challenge for UTIL time.

Thoughts on mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... p?t=260441
