Just drafted this squad in a 2nd year keeper league (we only keep 5). Does it have any glaring weaknesses?

will return the favor, of course. ;-D thanks!

NOPE! Good team.

You might not get much value this year from Drew, Cain and Lincecum [two great pitchers who won't get much run support] but they'll be gold down the road. And if they DO happen to contribute, that's just gravy on the potatoes.

Nice team!

Only real spot Id look to improve is Drew at SS. Im not really sold on him.

Id look to package Drew plus one of your young arms for an upgrade at ss.

Good luck ;-D

I think C is your biggest concern. Drew is gonna surprise a lot of people - his peripherals last year were good, and he has a really good minor league track record. He's way too young and talented for people to write him off already.

Ramon Hernandez scares me. Surely there are some undrafted C's you can pick up?

JR Towles is still available? Is he a better option than Hernandez?

thanks for the replies.

Towles, Soto, Bard, Snyder... they're all better options than Ramon Hernandez, IMO.
