good team. the only thing i see is a an upgrade at 2nd. i think you could find somebody looking for a 3b and trade chavez or cabrera for a 2B. your pitchers are good and everything else seems to be in order. but i might put crawford in front of winn.

Really? I'm shopping a-rod right now, just to see who I can get, trying to get a bit more pitching, 2b, and maybe a OF.

Yep, good overall team. That scopring sytem really favours strikeouts a LOT, and if there's no innings limit, then you want starters over closers.

Agree that 2B is weak, OF could be slightly stronger too. Crawford shouldn't be on your bench, he'll get a load of steals this year.

very good team, but what are you going to do when a-rod loses ss eligibility. i'd play him at 3b, trade chavez, and play cabrera at ss. also, i'd play crawford over everett. overall a good dfraft though.

good solid team. you could use another devastating bat in the outfield, or swing for a steals guy.. either way get someone who can milk HRs or SBs in the outfield, as your powerful infield will keep you afloat long enough to specialize in HR and/or RBI in the OF and run up those numbers.

you defintiely need to work some closers into the mix. scour the wire for cheap saves or pull the trigger on a trade when someone's getting more desperate for the production that your offense will have.
