WOW! 8-o Why don't they just call it a season now, redraft and start over. This is nice - even for 8 team

excellent draft young man

well done young man. I think you can count on 8s accross the board in pitching. Beckett in the 23 is disgusting. The hitting is ridanculous as well. Excellent work in drafting. I wouldnt mind drafting against more shrewd owners like yourself.

I dunno... sure your pitching is great, but you've got old man Schilling, who's going to snap a ligament in the first month and be out for the rest of the season. 8)

Also, your offense is pretty weak for an 8 team league. The #4 or #5 catcher, #7 at 1B, #5 or so at 2B, #8 or worse at SS, #1 at 3B, and your OF's are approximately #10, 20, and 30. Definitely below average on the offensive side of things. And Jones, Wells, and Phelps are on the bubble of even being worthy of being drafted in such a small league.

If you get lucky with some of your hitters, or you make savvy roster moves during the season, your pitching should be able to carry you to winning the league, but it's not a guarantee with that roster.

A very, very solid looking team to me. Now, you can only hope that it's not a public league and a guy makes unfair trades and stacks his team.

Good team. Some very impressive pitchers. I too am in a 8 man live draft league and there isnt any teams with that good of pitching. Although a lot of offenses better than yours. But like they said, u can easily trade some pitching for offense. Good work.

THIS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED !! DRAFTING against DRUNKEN SENIOR CITIZENS AND 10 YEAR OLDS IS SO UNFAIR! Seriously though, jeez - what a draft!
