Nice team. You have good offensive balance there. A lot of bargain picks, especially Berkman, Phillips, D. Lee, and Zimmerman. I'm really not sure who you were drafting against.

I like the upside of your SP. Keep an eye on your closer situations. Fantastic bargain picks for the closers, but you'll really have to keep a close eye on how those situations play out and on the candidates to win the closing jobs.

I didn't read other people's responses so forgive me if i sound redundant...

Your lineup is amazing!!!

Your starting pitching could use an ace even though I do like the guys you have...you could afford to trade off some of that value you had picking for some pitching help.

Reliever is not a strong spot for you either, but that's a position that can work itself out. Every year guys come out of nowhere to be great closers...for that, I wouldn't make any trades, but be sure to keep your eyes out for what stud will step up this year...

Overall, I'd say you def. have a contender though...

I think you analyzed your team pretty well. Great offense, blue-collar pitching staff (hard-workers who grind out good seasons). I still would like to have a guy that I am confident will get me K's, W's and decent ERA. But you should be fine with a bunch of 13/14 game winners, rather than a 17 game winner and a few 10 game winners.
There are two things that can go terribly wrong in a draft, one is nowhere near as bad as the other. You can get to a spot where there is no value in the top 5 or 6 guys on the board, so you make a reach, that is the one that makes you feel like you had a bad draft. The other is when there is so much value that you end up taking a guy who might not be the best pick for your team, but is the best pick available. If I had the first two outfield picks that you had, I would have so much trouble taking Berkman, and would probably have grabbed a pitcher.
But I think it worked out pretty well for you, and you can always move him to first if necessary.

You look great! Saves are the only weakness, and it is only slight (Lyon is the biggest if). As you said, you can make that up. You may want to think about tossing back someone like Justin Upton and picking up someone who might be in line to get saves, like Tom Gordon or Accardo. Or at least get Pena to cover for Lyon.

Jesus, amazing draft! Your offense is SOLID. You've got a bunch of young arms, but they've all got the potential to break-out. Really, as of right now, the only downfall I see are your closers, and in any league, closers aren't really a downfall, just dime a dozen.

Looks like a great team. My only concern is high era with Borowski. You will probably have to go to the WW for closers during the season.

Sick team. Only issue is Vasquez, he is way too hold and cold pitcher for me. Maybe try upgrading your P by trading away parts of that ridiculous lineup.

I think you value drafted a beast of a team. The only pick that I didnt agree with was Victorino in the 11th round, especially since you took OF with your top 3 picks. But other than that, that is a great team.

I love the roster. nice job. i don't think your pitching is that bad at all. if kazmir stays healthy your looking good. sherrill will be allright. and your right you can swoop on the save scene in the season. great team. thanks for the response to my post.
