you have a pretty well rounded offense. I personally would assume this year Burrell will serve more valuable than Abreau. Your pitching is weak though.. No real closer.. Felix as your #1 guy when the mariners have almost nothing going for them offensively entering the 09 season. Just a bunch of gambles following him in your rotation of SP.

Just a mock though not bad.. Look to pick up more pitching help in the rounds where your targeting bobby abreaus and such. Personally id skip King Felix for other pitchers unless he slipped through a few more rounds in a real draft.

Here is how my second went. I didn't really want Lidge that early or Ziegler at all.

Pos Round Player
C 9 (#86) Doumit, Ryan (C PIT)
1B 3 (#26) Youkilis, Kevin (1B BOS)
2B 5 (#46) Phillips, Brandon (2B CIN)
3B 4 (#35) Ramirez, Aramis (3B CHC)
SS 2 (#15) Rollins, Jimmy (SS PHI)
OF 1 (#6) Sizemore, Grady (OF CLE)
OF 6 (#55) Kemp, Matt (OF LA)
OF 8 (#75) Abreu, Bobby (OF NYY)
U 10 (#95) Ludwick, Ryan (OF STL)
P 7 (#66) Lidge, Brad (P PHI)
P 11 (#106) Weaver, Jered (P ANA)
P 12 (#115) Cain, Matt (P SF)
P 13 (#126) Garza, Matt (P TB)
P 14 (#135) Nolasco, Ricky (P FLA)
P 15 (#146) Scherzer, Max (P ARI)
P 16 (#155) Capps, Matt (P PIT)
RS 18 (#175) Bradley, Milton (OF CHC)
RS 22 (#215) Choo, Shin-Soo (OF CLE)
RS 17 (#166) Carpenter, Chris (P STL)
RS 19 (#186) Ziegler, Brad (P OAK)
RS 20 (#195) Rodney, Fernando (P DET)
RS 21 (#206) Meche, Gil (P KC)

I know the pitching is somewhat similar. I just never feel comfortable selecting starters in earlier rounds.

look to build young starters, I try building my rotation like so

Jake Peavy
Scott Kazmire/James Shields
Adam Wainwright

take a flyer on Jair Jurjergens and tommy hanson as a late round pick, those 2 should do well in ATL, your offense looks servicable, and should do well.

So I should draft at least one sure fire ace? My main probably with a lot of those guys is the amount of pitches which they've thrown puts them that much closer to a serious injury in the near future.

hitting in both are great. Pitching on the other hand is not.
It's obvious that you drafted hitting hitting hitting, but it's nice to filter a top pitcher in toward the top of the draft.
In a 10 team mixed, you need the presents of a Santana, Lincecum,Webb,Sabathia, you get my point.

Yeah, I have been trying to draft a good pitcher in the 5/6 rounds.
