Great Team!!!
Closer concerns though. Since this is an H2H league, it's my opinion that you can't afford to only have two closers, when other guys are throwing three or four at you. In a roto league you might be able to get by with only two.
I don't think I would make any changes just yet, because you can't possibly dig yourself into a big hole, with the bats you've got. I would wait and see how things go after a couple weeks, because I don't know that you have a need for Wakefield, Myers and Guthrie, none of those guys are players that can't be replaced on waivers.

Just for kicks what pick did you have and did you go in this order?

I think you need to either have Delmon young or bruce breakout in order for you OF to really be the caliber it should be in 10 teams. Good mix of speed and power overall, and I love weeks, and edwin enc as breakout candidates this year...great job on those. I agree the last power that wake and guthrie are probably worth dropping, but you should keep myers. I would pick up some bullpenn arms that have a shot at saves with those two roster spots.

Sorry it took so long to get back...

I had the 10th pick, so I went...


My strategy this year and last (when I won my Yahoo league) is to draft a 2B with my first pick (either Utley or Phillips this year). I do this because I think 2B is the most shallow posistion out there. In my opinion there is a huge drop from Phillips to BJ Upton, and Robinson Cano (who I would rank 3, 4). I don't see a drop like that is the top 3 of and other posistion.

Does this make sense to anyone else?
