thanks for the reply to mine.

I was actually curious how you got some of those players, so good job posting the draft results for everybody. Pretty crazy to land Ryan Braun in the 2nd rd.

Your batting is a lock. I especially like the beltre pick in the last rd. I personally think he's going to have a solid year.

Pitching is pretty good too. I'm big on Felix this year myself. I'm not too big on Dice-k though. I also like the sean marshall pick at the end. He could be amazing this year.

Just some friendly advice ... it really helps making team evaluation easier when you break things down by position (not just your team as a big list). See below. It also helps to know scoring (5x5?) and starting positions (Util? CI? MI? It helps to evaluate depth).

C: McCann
1B: Pujols
2B: Pedroia
3B: Zimmerman, Beltre
SS: Drew
OF: Braun, Bay, Crawford, C Jackson, D Young

SP: King Felix, Dice K, Nolasco, Cueto, Kershaw, O Perez, Buerhle, Sonnanstine, Marshall
RP: Marmol

Obviously, Pujols and Braun on the same team (without keepers) is a fantastic start. McCann's not really a reach in round 5 ... that's about his ADP. Offense looks powerhouse. Lots of power, high averages, run/rbi producers, and Crawford/Pedroia should hold the fort for SBs. Letting 3B slide late worked out fine - at least one of those guys will have a solid year (probably a lot better than people are predicting).

As much as I like the hitting, I don't really like the pitching. Only 1 closer (and one whose job is for grabs at that)? Are you punting saves? Not a fan of the SPs too much either. King Felix may break out, or he may not. Not a great SP1 for a 10-team league. And Dice K has plenty of warning signs that suggest a regression from 2008 numbers. I like the middle guys (Nolasco, Cueto, and Kershaw - though the latter's innings are a concern). And the last 4 guys in your rotation just look like waiver wire fodder to me (they're all FA's in my 10-team league).

I don't know. It's hard to see your pitching winning many categories, unless you just overwhelm your opponent in W's and K's. A smart opponent could counter that with streaming (probably getting the same ERA/WHIP production as the back-end of your rotation). The hitting is studly though. You could probably afford to downgrade one of your studs for pitching help. If you're punting saves, you might as well trade Marmol. If not, drop some of the baggage of the tail end of your rotation and speculate in closers. Without scanning through your whole draft report, there are probably a few FA's left who could win closing jobs.

Could you have a look at mine?: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=372935

Your hitting is great. Braun went way later than he should have. You have solid team speed also. Your pitching for a 10 team is weak though. You only have one reliever and you don't even really have a true ace.

I'd trade some of your depth at OF, but for some reason the people in your league really don't like Braun or Crawford so that may be difficult

i like the hitting on your team alot, i would give it a week or so to see how the pitching goes before unloading alot of your hitting. the good thing about head to head is that you can wait a few weeks to see how things pan out.

Good value on Crawford and getting Braun 2nd round is always nice.
Delmon Young is always a ?
Young pitchers.
If your pitching comes through than you have a solid team. ;-D

There's gonna be an echo in here: your hitting is awesome. BUT, your pitching suffered because of it. You've got way too many WHIP killers on your team like your anchors of Felix and Dice K. Maybe trade one of your third basemen for another, safer pitcher. Hitting is great, but it's only half the battle.

Help me too:
