12 team, 5X5, 21 players, Yahoo (with the round I drafted them)

C - Jason Varitek (10)
1B - Richie Sexson (4)
2B - Jose Vidro (5)
3B - Morgan Ensberg (8)
SS - Edgar Renteria (2)
OF - Carlos Beltran (1)
OF - Garret Anderson (6!!)
OF - Aubrey Huff (7!!)
Util - Torii Hunter (12)
BN - Richard Hidalgo (16)
BN - Joe Mauer (17)
BN - Bobby Crosby (18)
BN - D'Angelo Jimenez (20)
BN - Laynce Nix (21)

SP - Carlos Zambrano (13)
SP - Sidney Ponson (14)
RP - John Smoltz (3)
RP - Jorge Julio (9)
P - Francisco Cordero (11)
P - Demaso Marte (15)
P - Chad Cordero (19)

And I wasn't planning on taking any starters at all. I was going to just stick with hitters and closers and try to win the ERA, WHIP and Save categories while winning hitting categories too. On paper it looks like it could work. But Zambrano and Ponson sitting around in the 13th and 14th I couldn't pass up, especially with the left-over closers flying off the board. So tell me what you guys think! (Don't tell me I need starters, my plan was to have none in the first place. Otherwise where else should I improve?) Thanks in advance.

I think it's a pretty dismal team myself. Your hitting is ok, but that's all that can be said. And as for taking all those closers, Smoltz is the only sure thing you got. As far as weaknesses go, RBI, SB, and Ks come to mind. And your bench is absolutely horrendous. :-t

I agree. Your hitting is good, but your closers are nothing special beyond Smoltz. If you had decided to take closers, you should have really focused on taking them.
