I thought this was a pretty bomb draft, except I reached on Ramirez... even though that's about ADP, i think he's worth less. What do you guys think?

I really like this line up, it looks a lot like one of my teams.

Aside from feeling that it's not good to have more than 1 guy from a team that doesn't score that well, and not thinking Lopez is all that useful in roto, I think you should have a contending team if your bench pitchers can contribute enough.

my advice would be to search your waiver wire for a servicable 3b and swap him in for Lopez until A Rod gets back

Nice team bro! If Alexei Ramirez can replicate or improve on last years numbers you will be in really good shape. You have some stud players, Sandoval and Kemp should be nasty this year and your pitching looks solid as well. I don't really see any weak spots. The other poster suggested dumping Felipe Lopez and finding someone else to take A-Rod's spot until he returns. I think Lopez is fine, however if there happens to be a better option on the WW take the advice of "WorldBeater," and pick him up.
