my first draft of the year

Postby shmolex » Wed Mar 05, 2008 1:35 am

it's good to be back at the cafe! although now it looks like I need a new sig. Anyway, here's my first draft of the year. 5x5 h2h. Not too bad I think for a first go. I know my closers suck, but I'm always the first to pick up new closers throughout the year, so I'm not worried at all. I think it needs a little more power. I guess I'm punting SB too.

not a bad looking team at all, and i agree, looks like you will be punting steals unless you can grab someone cheap that didnt get drafted (maybe bourne from hou??)
pitching is solid enough to get you a couple of cats a week, and should be even better if carpenter comes back and pitches anything like he used to, though lackeys pain worries me a bit
i like fukudome, and even if he doesnt pan out then you have a good looking OF/Util
all in all, nice job ;-D

help if you can
