I like my lineup, nice mixture of power and speed. My rotation, although young and with some health concerns, I think could be awesome over the course of the season. And my closers are decent enough to get me through the year. Opinions, post your link!

That is a really solid draft. The only real concern I have is with Varitek but that's just because I know a lot of people that got burned by him last year.

The pitching is quite solid throughout and is definately K-oriented.

All in all, nice draft!

Like you said the youth of the pitching scares me a little but there is alot of upside there. Offense looks solid and should do well. Good Draft!!

Braun is my only hitter from last year to hit 30+ hr's but it doesnt bother me because I have faith that Lee, Hermida,Glaus, Del. Young, and Crawford will all see an increase in HR's for this year.

I really like your team. Your offense I think is very well thought out. I question the injury risk and weardown of your pitching staff but all are gambles I think I'd make myself. Good stuff. Maybe upgrade Varitek and possibly sell Burrell high on a little well rounded OF. But its not a must.

help me out:

Yea, power may be a little thin, because Crawford doesn't really offer that many HR's, regardless of the hype surrounding him. I am not too sure about Pat Burrell. I have doubts about him as a starter.

Some excellent pitchers there. I think Kazmir is underappreciated by many. I'm not sure how consistent Lincecum will be. Zack Greinke could be great this year.

Pretty decent team, and if you are an active manager, I think winning the league won't be too difficult.

Cheers

Nice draft. Offense is pretty much balanced. I think D-Lee will have a nice year. Braun is the real deal.
Your SP have the "potential" to be very good. They're a bit of a risk, but a good risk. Lincecum should deliver on most numbers except for wins.Kaz should be top notch as long as he doesn't wear out and Gallardo has potential to be special. You drafted for K's which ain't a bad thing. Good Luck and thanks for checking mine out!
