Let me just say that I think the only 2 bad picks were Ankiel and Pierre, and the Ankiel pick has some potential.

Pierre at 102 is high because as of right now Ethier might get 60% of the time in LF and hitting 0 HR in the 450 AB I think he'll get this year for Pierre isn't pretty especially considering those steals should drop from 60 to around 40, but thats neither here nor there.

Hanley,Lee,Berkman,Morneau,Abreu all have cases for being taken in the 3rd round or before in all formats of leagues 12 teams or more and that is a core to write home about. A combination of 85 SB and 135 HR in the first 5 rounds is just absolutley amazing, and thats not considering that these guys' combined average should sit around .300 probably.

You have depth everywhere, and I just really love this team, not much else to say. I'm not huge on Zambrano and even though I'm a Rays Fan I want to see a little bit better pitch selection from Kaz over a longer period of time, but you can't deny the talent on this team, and no matter the format this team is a frontline contender even in a 12 team league.

Nice work

Thanks for the help:

I'm not sure I would have taken Ankiel at all and I think you might have reached for Pierre. If Gagne can find something close to his old form it looks like you have a heck of a line up. I don't know what your format is, but I don't think I would carry 2 catchers either.

This is the only part of the draft I think could hurt. Im not a fan of taking closers until the late rounds because theres always saves on the wire. Especially because you picked three mediocre closers in succession. But besides that ;-D

Yeah I agree with this. The Pierre might not have been the best idea either. Overall you had a great start with HRam, CLee, LBerk.
