Not great but solid starting pitching, I like the Tulo pick at 119, thin at RP but overall very solid. I would attempt to upgrade your pitching slightly to add depth or package to get a solid #1 or #2. Hitting should be great assuming they stay healthy.

Lets start with pitching. I agree that you don't have that overpowering pitching staff. I like the guys you have, but here's the problem I have. I don't think you have a very high ceiling with your pitching staff. I don't see anybody winning more than 14/15 games. Vazquez, Pettitte and Weaver don't get a lot of K's. I didn't really like the reach for Qualls and Hanrahan in the 11th and 12th rounds. I value closers, but I think you would have been better off picking up a 3rd OF first... but not that big of a deal.

I don't know how your MR's work. I like Dotel but Soriano will have arm problems. I think Cox would be more willing to go with Moylan if Gonzalez got hurt for the closer role in Atlanta. I am a Braves fan, but I would have stayed away from Chipper. I just don't think he plays but about 120 games. That hurts in the fantasy world. If you can't keep up with things on the hour, then you can easily miss Chipper getting stratched at the last minute like he does sometimes.

I think you have a pretty good team, but I think you could look to sell high on one of the Upton brothers (primarily Justin) if they get off to a hot start. I would look to bolster your SP first.


Please rate my team.

I was planning to trade one of my closers if Gregg Gets the Closer job(which looks like a possibility) for an SP. I already have takers, Sweet Lou should make a ecision soon. Also, Pettitte was an accidental pick, I had him in MY Queue when the Yahoo draft room Locked up and I went to Auto pick. I was thinking of dropping Pettite and picking up a back up 3B option. On the waiver wire I wave Reynolds, Blalock, Headley, Koozmanoff, Wiggington and Blake . About 4 teams got locked out at some point during the drsft(has anyone else had this happen on Yahoo?).
