Again you help me out, i'll help you have a good sunday!
Think you did very well. Your starting pitching should be solid and really like your OF. The only area I would be concerned would be saves. You have a couple of questions marks as closers, but the good thing is saves can usually be found on the waiver wire during the season.
Love your Choo and Francouer picks based on value and where you drafted them.
thanks so far guys, i think i did well, you seem to agree.... i know i am short on saves, each time i was like "i'm gonna take this closer now" BOOM he went about 4 picks before me! it happened repeatedly, then the next guy wasn't valuable enough on my list and guys like Jay bruce were sitting there in the 10th round of a 12 team draft, I couldn't pass!
I am pretty sure i can take one of my offensive players and move him for some saves later on? I should have multiple break out guys from some of my picks?
Francouer, choo, eithier, bruce, cruz, rasmus, sandoval, spillboroughs, gamel..... I mean something has to come of that! LOL
plus the RP's i do have i really like, QUALLS is going to be underrated and get 30+ and the same with Lyons.... hannanarahahahn isn't as pretty either but saves are saves.... I am sure i can deal one of the guys i just listed for something later.... or hit the waiver wire like a hawk, half of closers don't hold their jobs anyways!
nice draft, as already mentioned your closer situation is tenuous. you did well with late picks Wang, jair, choo.

what do you think of Miggy/Fuentes for Holliday/Wainwright?
32 inning min in our league, so SP isn't as valuable and i have beckett and shields, plus some good late round SPs and there's always the waiver wire... I think the HR/RBI would be trememndous for my team, plus adding the saves would be solid? I hate losing Hollidays SB's but thats if you believe he'll steal that much again? If i'm only losing 10-15 thats not so bad, 25 ish sucks....
ideas? You can see my draft above, i think i have PLENTY of OF fill ins and Miggy is 3b eligible in our league! I'd have wright and miggy in a 12 team H2h league? I think i could about command whatever i want for one of them, or sit and hoard!!!
Thanks for helping with mine. Your lineup looks good, but I think you could upgrade your staff a bit. I'd be concerned that you don't have a bonafied ace unless Beckett bounces back. I'd try to shop a bat for an ace unless your league is heavily weighted toward hitting.

yeah i didn't give you guys all the info, 10 hitting cats, 10 pitching cats, H2H and it is weighted towards hitting with there being a 32 inning min each week... once you get your innings in if your stats are solid, ERA and WHIP low, you bench.... lock up half the pitching, stack up on hitting, dominate that, game over.....
y ou think someone else in the league besides about 4 of us would figure this out.... someones gotta take lince and johan tho, right??? LOL

the answer, YES AND NO.... we have 3 OF spots and 3 UTL spots, so 6 of them could fit in right there! deep bench!
But mainly i take more offense/OF'ers due to we have a 32 inning min pitch limit, alot of guys once they hit 32 innings bench their players and take alot of the pitching cats, if their pitchers keep those stats low, so having tons of SP isn't a top priority.... I'd rather stack on offense then if gamel doesn't come up, spillboroughs doesn't play, cruz strikes out 100 times in the first month, i still have back ups.... pretty much i pick alot of upside/sleeper type talent and hope something pans out huge....
