As you can tell, I went for bats early and often, and then went for quality MR and Closers. The league is 10x10 and I had the 14th pick out of 14. Vlad got autopicked by an absent owner at 13th, and I had to take ManRam and Schill as my first two picks.

It looks to me like you came out of the draft in great shape. This is imo an amazing team for a 14-team league. Your (presumably) late picks on SPs will, I think, really pay off - re Webb and Harden.

You've also got great trade-bait (if you want it) with three sought-after SSs. Well done!

super solid infield for 14 team league....

plenty of depth at SS with 3, budding superstars at 1b and 3b...cant ask for too much better of an infield in 14 team...u could use jeter (especially since u got ensberg on the bench) to bring in another solid starting pitcher to go along with schilling...

but other than that great job swarmee....

Wow, that hitting is just insane for a 14 team league!

Agree you could probably do with another solid starter, 4 doesn't seem enough to me, though I don't know your league settings.

I know almost nothing about Laynce Nix, you think he'll get regular at bats this season?

You can probbly do better then Jackson as your starter but the infield is very solid. Pitching could use some work on the bench.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I would put Cabrera in the last OF position and put Ensberg at CI, and try to trade Jeter to someone with a crappy SS (there's got to be a few since you've got 3, all high quality) for a good starter. Other than those, great work, especially for a 14 team league.

Nice draft. Is that in a public league?

Swarmee, great team. Dont do anything except trade a SS for a stud pitcher. And when i mean dont do anything, dont do anything, even picking up a player off FA, unless its somebody like Pujols, who might be there the way your draft went ;-) . And please check mine out.

Dawg, good offense, but Brown as your number 1 pitcher? Hes a huge injury risk. But maybe thats good enough for a 15 team league, Ive never been in one.

Yeah, we had a run on pitchers early so I waited and he was the best guy left in the 4th round. I hope he stays healthy too.
