10 team Yahoo H2H Redraft league amongst friends.
It was an autodraft, and i stupidly assumed i would get Utley at #5...instead, he went at #4, and Soriano dropped to me. Draft gave me Freel late, so i guess i could just play him...just picked up Upton, hoping that he'll be the 2B starter...Burke and Kelly Johnson are on the wire...any ideas on that situation or on the team are appreciated...i'll be out for a bit, but will respond later if you leave a link...

Looks like you faired pretty well, got tons of power and two stud closers (especially great with K/9 as a pitching cat!). The autodraft left you thin at SP, especially if Harden goes down, and you don't have much speed if Freel doesn't get regular playing time. Francoeur seems too good to just have sitting on the bench... can you maybe shop him for a guy like Kelvim Escobar?

Check out my team, thanks!

yeah, it kinda sucks to be depending on Freel for anything, but i guess he has been consistent over the last couple years as far as stealing bases goes, so maybe i should just keep him at 2nd, not worry about Upton/Burke/Johnson/whoever, and pick up a starting pitcher?

well, i could shop Francouer, but not for Escobar, since he's available on the WW (10 team league and all...) Also, A.J. Burnett was on the wire, so i figured i'd pick him up before Escobar, so now i've replaced Upton with Burnett....if Upton gets the job at 2B, maybe i'll pick him back up, and then use Freel as a super-sub, since he has 3 position eligibility...
