10 team 5x5 yahoo roto keeper with standard cats. We start 4 OF, an IF and a U. How'd I do?

Batters
C: Pablo Sandoval (C,1B,3B)
1B: Chris Davis (1B,3B)
2B: Mark DeRosa (2B,3B,OF)
3B: Adrian Beltre (3B)
SS: Jose Reyes (SS)
IF: Derrek Lee (1B)
OF: Carlos Beltran (OF), Matt Holliday (OF), Alex Rios (OF), Magglio Ordonez (OF)
Util: Bobby Abreu (OF)
BN: Delmon Young (OF), Melvin Mora (3B)

Pitchers
SP: Brandon Webb (SP), James Shields (SP), Edinson Volquez (SP)
RP: Matt Capps (RP), Heath Bell (RP)
P: David Price (SP), Derek Lowe (SP), Scott Baker (SP)
BN: Chris Perez (RP), Chien-Ming Wang (SP), Joe Saunders (SP), Jason Motte (RP)

Obviously, I focused on the OF a lot so my IF is a little weak. I always take cheap closers too, so that explains the capps, bell, perez/motte combo. First draft of the year, and it's my first keeper though I've played redraft for years. What do you think? Leave a link and I'll hit ya back.

I can't find any fault with your offense. Looks very well rounded to me, I like the young guys and prospects you grabbed (sandoval, c. davis) and I think you gave yourself a lot of interesting options for players to keep in this league (although I think you are going to have a tough time deciding who to let go!)...

Pitching is equally formidable. I think you have a nice mix of proven numbers (webb), young guns (price), and vets (lowe) to more than get the job done. I am very high on scott baker too, whom I hope will provide great value this season.

My view is a little skewed since I am a little more used to 12 team leagues, and therefore less talent per team, but there is really nothing that I would change about this team. (Also the multi position eligibility of sandoval, derosa and davis is awesome!)

Any thoughts on mine appreciated http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=370877

well said - that counts for a lot in a league with your format. i actually like the reliever combo, as i bet you found them in bargain rounds. if they get the opportunity, you could have some nice surprises on hand.

that is a stacked outfield. the only thing i've noticed is that you might find yourself deficient in the power categories if Crash Davis struggles, DeRosa regrsses, and Holliday can't find his groove in Oakland.

good luck to you ;-D
