had the draft last night, wondering what people thought (* denotes starter on offense)
i know i have pretty much no saves, but with an early closer run, i decided to just punt saves

first pick overall
1. (1) Hanley Ramírez SS*
2. (24) B.J. Upton OF*
3. (25) Prince Fielder 1B*
4. (48) Nick Markakis OF*
5. (49) Matt Kemp OF*
6. (72) Chris Davis 1B,3B*
7. (73) Garrett Atkins 1B,3B
8. (96) Javier Vázquez SP
9. (97) Jay Bruce OF
10. (120) Matt Wieters C
11. (121) Adam Wainwright SP
12. (144) Raúl Ibañez OF*
13. (145) Zack Greinke SP
14. (168) Josh Johnson SP
15. (169) Chris Carpenter SP
16. (192) Pablo Sandoval C,1B,3B*
17. (193) Ubaldo Jiménez SP
18. (216) Brad Ziegler RP
19. (217) Jose Arredondo RP
20. (240) Kevin Gregg RP
21. (241) Chris Ray RP
22. (264) Orlando Hudson 2B*
23. (265) Felipe López 2B,3B,SS,OF

feel like i reached a bit on davis, and grabbed atkins right after just in case in a panic move
wanted to get jose lopez at 2B, but he got grabbed earlier than i thought (have a proposal already to upgrade 2B)

Love that you got Sandoval so you can wait for Wieters. Your team has a really nice speed/power mix. Your pitching though, is really weak. Greinke is probably your best starter. Carpenter could be useful if he stays healthy. Your RP are hurting also. You have no real solid closers. If you are dedicated to punting, just move Ziegler and Gregg now while they still have the prospect of getting the closing job. If they lose the job or don't get it, they'll have no value, and 1-2 closers probably isn't going to win saves for you in any given week. If you really want to compete I think you are going to need SP upgrades though.
