It really helps (and encourages more responses) when you break down your team into positions. Like this:

C: Posada
1B: Howard, Berkman
2B: Phillips
3B: Atkins
SS: Jeter
OF: Markakis, Granderson, Abreu, Matsui

SP: King Felix, Shields, Myers, Wainwright, Bedard
RP: Street, Hanrahan, Ray, Rodney, Ziegler, Perez

The starting lineup seems pretty solid. There's enough power and speed to go around. I don't like Atkins at #63 ... but I guess he's young enough to reverse trends and put up All-Star level numbers again. Jeter was probably good value when you took him (as was Posada ... there's little to lose at pick 226). I don't like Matsui as your only bench hitter though. He's awfully gimpy, and OF is pretty deep with sleepers this year. I guess if you believe he returns to form it's a decent pick.

Your 5 SPs are all good ... you got nice value where you picked some of them. Playing a little prospecting game with relievers, are we? :-b I'm guessing your strategy was to load up the draft, wait for who pans out in the pre-season (or very early season), and jettison the scrubs for SP and/or hitting depth. Or if all them pan out, there's trade bait. At least I hope that's your plan, because you don't want all these guys on your team for long once the season starts.

Can you help in return? viewtopic.php?t=374491

I like. I'd want more depth at SP. But the hitting is very solid...

I like everything except the dynamic duo at 1B and your lack of a true ace. I'd shop Howard for an ace and maybe a low top-tier SP or strong RP.

I agree with Atkins being a reach at #63 that's the pick I regret the most in the draft. I should have taken Chipper there. Oh well, we're each allowed at least one pick we regret per draft right? Hopefully some of the sucky RP's I'm overloaded with pan out.
