Just finished up my draft for my H2H 3 keeper league and was wondering what areas I might need to work on. My keepers were Johan Santana, David Wright and Carl Crawford. I avoided joining in a closer run in the middles rounds and I settled on Gagne, Corpas and a returning(hopefully)BJ Ryan. I could have had Bedard with my first pick,the eighth overall, but I chose to go with Troy Tulowitzki since I believe pitching is frigging deep this year. Bobby Abreu fell to me in the 6th round and even though I took Markakis in the second, I couldn't pass him up. I might have reached on Francisco Liriano in the 10th round and Johnathon Broxton in the 12th but I really wanted them this year. I believe my pitching staff has the potential to among the best in the league as long as Liriano can return to form and Pedro can stay healthy.

Pretty solid team, overall. Not joining in the closer run MAY hurt you, but your guys are all high reward. Plus, like was said, there are always new closers surfacing, and guys surprising. I'd just keep an eye out, and try to keep a low waiver priority, if possible. Nice job. Having those three as keepers to start never hurts.
I really like the upside for your pitching staff with pedro, liriano, myers and wainwright anchored by harang and santana. your offense looks pretty good too you although there are some question marks about whether tulo will do as well, who knows what ugglas going to do, and abreu is getting up there in age.
You definitely took some risks with your pitching staff, but having a couple of guys like Santana and harang to hold things down will help. If you have problems, I'd anticipate them here. I like your offence, especially with you having two productive first basemen.
Tulo is a nice 4th rounder - that's where he seems to be going in many leagues. You have a LOT of risks here: Liriano, Pedro, Ryan, Gagne all had injuries. Also, past Crawford, you may need some work in SB's.
