looks very very good in terms of players and their round values. some of the guys i dont know how they slipped so far, like carlos lee, joey votto, and carlos marmol. you look as if you have a top level team. speed might be one concern, but i wouldnt even worry about it.

I like it a lot. Overall, you took the right players at the right time and this will definitely put you in a good position to compete this year. Obviously you'll need to vulture some closers to compete in Saves, cuz Valverde and Marmol ain't gonana cut it, especially if Marmol isn't closing. That's the only weakness I see and it's not a very major one. Good luck.

On 1st glance it looks like a nice well rounded draft, if you give me the hitter/pitcher set-up you were drafting to (1c..mi/ci..7-9p), I'll give you a better idea of what I think you have. ;-D

Team looks good overall with those categories. Josh Beckett seemed a bit of a reach as a 5th rounder.

solid Overall team except for a lack of speed and a weak closing staff.
