C --- Pablo Sandoval
1B --- Chris Davis
2B --- Brandon Phillips ;-D
3B --- David Wright ;-D
SS --- Alexei Ramirez
OF --- Nate McLouth
Torri Hunter
Nelson Cruz
UTIL --- Coco Crisp
BENCH --- Paul Konerko
Nyjer Morgan

SP Chad Billingsley ;-D , Rich Harden, Scott Kazmir, Erik Bedard, Kevin Slowey, Paul Maholm ;-D

RP Brian Fuentes, Jonathan Broxton, Brad Ziegler, George Sherill

Offense- after Wright and Phillips, there alot of ifs, Davis is more suited at UTIL, but with Konerko there its a toss up between the 2 you should get 60+ hrs but lucky to get a .270 avg out of either. Sandoval is a better bench option this season wouldn't rely too much on him, plus he will lose his C eligibility soon. Ramirez at SS is a gamble doesn't walk and has a horrible OBP, I expect .260 15hrs 20sb from him which is only so so. Your OF is weak compared to others McLouth needs to prove that last season wasn't a fluke, he even slumped badly at the end of the season last year, Hunter is more of a #3 OF, but Cruz could be a sleeper or a bust, he hasn't prove he isn't a bust so far and he is old at 28 as a prospect. Crisp is so so and should be on the bench.

Pitching- I like your pitching, it's solid but not spectacular, hopefully you are not relying on Harden too much. You did go overboard on RP, I would look to move Sherril and Ziegler to shore up the weak offense

Sorry if this seems critical, but in a standard yahoo roto, the draft outcome should look slightly better, this looks more llika a auto pick draft.

Help with mine?

I agree with the others, your C/1B are servicable, 2B, 3B, and SS are very strong, but your OF is questionable. McLouth is due for regression in my opinion, and Cruz and Hunter are subject to inconsistency. I like the starting rotation a lot, I think you have a solid bullpen. Since OF is so easy to fill out over the course of the year, you should be fine. Feel free to drop someone like Coco Crisp for a really hot player.

I personally like the offense. With McLouth and Hunter you have 50/50 potential there. I don't think McLouth has reached his ceiling yet. With Ramirez you have 15/20 potential which isn't bad. you might have a low Avg but I think the offense is fine. I like the Coco Crisp pick.

Your starters is where I have an issue. Kazmir is a 5 inning pitcher who puts a ton of people on base. Harden and Bedard and both serious risks but if they pitch 25 games you have no issues. I like Slowey and Maholm in the back end though and the pen is fine.

Help?
