You've got some solid pieces so you can still win the league if you follow throughout the season and pickup the guys. I think you could have done better in a 10 team draft.

Some of the guys you have are on the downside of their careers (Giambi, R Johnson, Lowell, Matusi - I like Abreu as a later pickup) and other guys are coming off career years that will be difficult to duplicate (C. Lee, Dempster, DeRosa).

On the good, I don't think you'll have to worry about adding more speed and you have a couple of dependable power bats to work with (ARod, Fielder). Hunter Pence was a good guy to take a chance on.

I would have liked to have seen more guys with upside being picked up later in your draft (Nolasco, Kershaw, Scherzer, Greinke). Good closers. Consider adding a 3rd closer.

Thanks. I thought about doing the same, (adding another closer). Any leads on an unkown or known but rarely drafted RP FA I should concider grabbing and taking a chance on? And who would you drop to add that closer?

I like your infield alot. Only question mark on it is oyur CI with Jason Giambi. Good for power, but considering the depth at 1B, I'm sure there was good value in the later rounds with more upside.

I can tell you used to early picks on your RP. It shows because you could have stacked up on middle tier pitchers and take late flyers on closers. Players like Carmona, Ubaldo, Bonderman, and Snell are scraping the bottom of the barrell in a 10 team league. I'm sure there's better pitchers on the wire as we speak.

You've got premium closers, adding one more might help. I'm targeting three in particular later in my own draft. See if they're still available:
Frank Fransisco
Mike Gonzalez
Chad Qualls

All have the ability and maybe the oppurtunity to get 30 saves. If not, drop them and pick up their replacements.

Could you help in return, again?
