Well, if it was an auction, how much did you spend on each player? It looks like you went for the anchor strategy (one stud starter, reliever, and outfielder) and then started grabbing the young guns that are expected to be great in upcoming years. I think that you'll need help in WHIP, so if you can trade some of your bench players for a big innings eater that can rack up a low WHIP/ERA, you might have to do it. Otherwise, I like your team.

I expect a little better for an Auction league, but anything can happen. Good Luck

Not bad, I've seen a lot worse. Should be in the top half. B-)

I just inputed the amount that I paid for each player.

Thanks for the analysis everyone :-).

Should be in the upper half..... :-)

The big thing I see is the back half of your rotation is week....may need to upgrade there....like swarmee said....find an inning eater...that will help you with the ratio's.....

Yeah that is what I am thinking. And, because I like Cintron so much and I think Crosby will be solid, I am thinking of using Jeter as trade bait then maybe pairing him up with Urbina for another second tier starter :-? .

I think I will wait to the season though, when people's weaknesses start loosing them games, because I think this team does not have any HUGE holes :-D .

Your pitching looks a bit weak. I'd try to trade some hitting for pitching help.

What???

SP - Tony Armas ($1)

Did anyone else not catch this??? That's the biggest steal of your draft. However, and everyone can yell at me for this....

CARLOS BELTRAN IS NOT WORTH 44 DOLLARS!!!! Draft Soriano for that much, at least he plays second base.

I give you a B or B+

I think you did a good job drafting, however, I have to agree with some of the other comments. Roy Halladay and Jake Peavy are a decent one-two punch and Tony Armas is a steal for $1, however, we will have to see how Brett Myers and Ben Sheets do. You may want to package one of your SS prospects for another starter.
Ricky Weeks will absolutely be a great player.

I am not sold on Nick Johnson or Jason Phillips, but with the rest of your starting line-up they will be fine.

Good job. I predict a top 5 finish for your squad.
