C: Matt Wieters
1B: Lance Berkman
2B: Robinson Cano
3B: David Wright
SS: Derek Jeter
OF: Matt HollIday
OF: Nick Markakis
OF: Jacoby Ellsbury
Util: Carlos Pena
BN: Chris Young

BN: Kelly Johnson

SP: Brandon Webb
SP: Dan Haren
RP: Joe Nathan
RP: Jose Valverde
P: Ryan Dempster
P: Matt Capps
P: John Danks
BN: Randy Johnson
BN: Johnny Cueto

I had to go after I drafted the starters, so the bench players were autopicked. I do have a waiver up to drop Kelly Johnson and pick up Ramon Hernandez, as I can't really just have Wieters at this point, but he dropped to the 12th round and I figured he was a good risk.

Here was my draft results:
1. (4) David Wright
2. (17) Matt Holliday
3. (24) Lance Berkman
4. (37) Brandon Webb
5. (44) Nick Markakis
6. (57) Dan Haren
7. (64) Jacoby Ellsbury
8. (77) Joe Nathan
9. (84) Derek Jeter
10. (97) Robinson Canó
11. (104) José Valverde
12. (117) Matt Wieters
13. (124) Carlos Peña
14. (137) Ryan Dempster
15. (144) Matt Capps
16. (157) John Danks
17. (164) Chris Young
18. (177) Conor Jackson
19. (184) Kelly Johnson
20. (197) Randy Johnson
21. (204) Johnny Cueto

What do you think? Thanks in advance.

looks like you have real good balance offensively, and a solid looking staff
personally i dont like jeter for fantasy purposes, and might look to upgrade there if i could, but he wont hurt your team at all, i just feel like he doesnt help all that much
bench is weak, but you knew that already
pitching looks solid with webb and haren to lead the staff, and then solid guys behind...great job there

overall i think your team is looking good, my only concern might be SBs since i dont think berkman runs nearly as much as he did last year, but if markakis does what he says (he's been quoted as wanting to run more) i think you should be fine there between him, ellsbury, and wright, plus the minor contributions from some of the other guys

help please

You've got some good balance offensively and with your rotation.

Definitely get another catcher to tide you over for a bit.

Jeter in the 9th round was too high, but you'll be find with him.

Look at guys like Salty or Snider as replacements if avail.

You have a pretty solid team. Offensively you're solid all-around except for C, but you're gonna pick up Ramon Hernandez so you're fine there. Your a little weak on steals, hopefully Ellsbury will have a good year. Your top 2 pitchers are nice, but your other pitchers aren't too impressive but they won't kill you.
