Wow dude, nice draft! Who are these hosers you're playing with that allowed this to happen?
Anyway, you don't have a whole lot of weaknesses I don't think. Those scoring cats are funky though, I wouldn't even worry about putouts and assists, how the hell can you ever hope to predict those really? I'd just focus on the typical hitting cats you've got there.

The only real negative I see in my opinion is in the Kazmir pick, he's a lights out arm but the guy is injury prone but I'm assuming you knew that risk before you took him. Dice K too is a little shaky but hopefully he will shake out for you. I'd suggest moving them if you could but a SP for an SP is a tough deal to make.

That's all I've got, help with mine?

The negatives are that you've got an aging outfield which features regression candidates Ordonez and Abreu. Also, your starting pitching doesn't stand out in a 10 teamer as pitchers like Kazmir and Dice-K are questionable. The rest of your lineup is good, and the relief pitching is very good if Wood can stay on the field.

Just to reiterate what some other posters said, you are in a league with amateurs if they let you draft an all-star team like this lol. Also, your top 2 starters, Kazmir and Daisuke are questionable. I have Daisuke on one of my teams as well but I regret the pick somewhat. He is not going to put up numbers like he did last year, he got extrememely lucky, and I could see his ERA rising steadily in 2009.

its just a friendly league of people that all visit a common website.
Its got about 4-6 regulars and the rest rotate every year.
its the only league ive ever been in and this is by far the best draft ive ever had. I pretty much just kept picking guys who "fell to me"

anyway the skill level is very uneven, we have some guys that are totally new each year and some guys who kind of know what we are doing, though obviously none of us are experts
