Your team looks pretty solid. I would definitely drop JD Drew because there is no way you can trust him. I like a lot of the players you got later, which really gives your team some depth.

Help me too:

overall, I think you have a pretty good team for a head to head. The only thought I have is think about trading Bradley after the first month of the season, because you know he will get hurt with almost 90% certainty.

I think it looks like a really good team. Some really good guys must've dropped below their ADP ... and it looks like you managed to scoop them up. Hitting looks well-rounded. There are spots that aren't a sure thing, but with an IF and 3 Util spots that's unavoidable. Huff maintaining his '08 level, Martinez returning to his '07 level, and Milledge rising to the next level are the keys to whether this will be a good or great team. And I actually like the combo of Bradley and Drew. Both can rake with high OPS when they play ... and both are injured alot. If you're lucky (and can spare the roster spot), they'll combine to form a single elite hitter (at a bargain price). The pitching looks great. Top 5 SPs are really strong, you have 3 good value closers, and 2 top set-up men. Without seeing your league, I'd bet this is one of the top pitching staffs.

Any thoughts on mine? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=372935

Thanks for all the thoughts! I got both Bradley and Drew as fairly late-round picks: Bradley went in the 17th, while Drew went in the 26th (and final) round. I know both have weaknesses, but I wanted their OPS potential, and I got them so late that it's no biggie if something bad befalls them.

I'm a bit leery of my 3B situation - I wanted Zimmerman, but he was scooped up one pick before mine, so I went with Huff. I'm honestly not wild about my top 3 SPs, either - they have great potential but weren't among my targets. Honestly, I took Cliff Lee just because he fell to the 10th round. It's hard to pass on the Cy Young winner when he falls to 99th in the draft!

Anyway, I'm generally happy and think this should be a competitive team - unline my friend who got jobbed by autodraft. He has EIGHT outfielders, only Huston Street and Brandon Morrow as RPs, and mediocrities everywhere except OF. I know autodraft can work well if prepped properly, but I'd never use it!
