All I fell that can be said is great work, I like that group of guys a lot.

In particular:

SP Erik Bedard SEA R16 P4 - Great round 16 pickup. For the potential production he has, he is also more capable of achieving it than other players taken for potential in the area of this selection.

SS Stephen Drew ARI R10 P4 - I'm in the "Stephen Drew is going to dominate" camp, and would've targeted him around round 7 or 8 in a 10-teamer. Good value.

DH Travis Hafner CLE R20 P4 - I personally doubt he will come back to what he was a couple years ago, but in round 20 its a steal. Leaves a few options later, a solid unspectacular .270-20-85, the unlikely chance he regains his form to .300-40-110, and if he gets off to a hot start a chance to trade him off to someone who does believe he has regained form and pays value as such.

I would say you had a great draft. Like the post before you got a lot of late picks full of potential and trade high potential.
Strong team!

I think you went too pitcher crazy and you should focus on 1 or 2 better bats. I think this is a deep year for pitching and to grab so many early is a bigger gamble than the everyday player. In a couple of mock drafts this year I did not grab a pitcher until Rnd 5,6 and ended up with a comparable staff.

I like your team.

I do agree with ETraum. You were able to nail down your two stud pitchers with CC and Hamels in the 4th and 5th, so I probably would have went with a bat in either the 8th or 9th where you took Beckett and Lackey.

If you pass on Beckett, You still would have a rotation including CC,Hamels, and Lackey which in a 10 team league would be very strong.

Overall though, solid job.
