Well, you clearly went with a pitching-heavy team. If the scoring system favors pitching, then you did a very good job. But you left yourself exposed at a lot of hitting positions. I like Miguel Cabrera and Chipper Jones at the corners, and Mike Lowell to back them up. But all of your 2B/SS players are below average for a 12 teamer. It's hard to tell what you'll get out of older OFs Dye, Taveras, and Winn. It seems like you reached for Holliday in the second round, even though he may not reproduce Coors Field numbers in a pitching environment. You may have taken Papelbon a bit too soon. I don't like reaching for closers if there are still a lot of holes in the lineup.

Overall, though, this team could work out nicely for you if some of these veterans do well.

Yeah, my pitching is very strong - often times it seems like people will overpay for a good pitcher in a trade a few months in, so I can probably get some good players doing that. Though I don't think my batting is too bad, my average will be very good, I have a lot of steals, and if those veterans come through, this could be a very good team. Any more opinions? Also, what do you think about my bench?
Thanks!

Pretty good given your pitching heavy strategy...our teams share that common thread, along with some familiar names in the offense.....

I would look towards upgrading the OF.....in leagues where you draft 5, you have to treat it as a scarce category....I think Dye is underrated, but I'm not huge on anyone else (Holliday is a good 1, but it drops after that)
