2B. Dan Uggla (14)
3B. Alex Rodriguez (1)
SS. Elvis Andrus (9)
of. Justin Upton (2)
of. Adam Jones (6)
of. Carlos Quentin (8)
of. Carlos Gonzalez (12)
of. Kyle Blanks (24)
MI. Jorge Cantu (17)
CI. Ian Stewart (15)
util. Magglio Ordonez (25)

Pitchers
Felix Hernandez (3)
Zack Greinke (4)
Adam Wainwright (5)
Clayton Kershaw (11)
Jair Jurrjens (13)
Bobby Jenks (16)
Mark Buehrle (21)
Edwin Jackson (19)
Francisco Liriano (18)

Bench
Jon Rauch (23)
Magglio Ordonez (25)
Brad Lidge (20)
Delmon Young (waivers)

-I like my starting pitching and power a lot, but I am concerned with batting average (Stewart and Uggla are duds in average).
-If Gonzalez and Jones can increase their steal totals (which I think they will), my speed should be solid.
-My 'saves' are dependent on two things: a.) Lidge returns to good form, and b.) Rauch does in fact replace Nathan as Minny's closer

I like it. Not much to complain about here, but in a 10-team league that's pretty much a given. If it's a H2H league you won't have to fret AVG...it's too variable for it to matter that much. Nice pitching balanced with power. Greinkie/Felix is a killer 1-2. You've got some pop, got some speed, and have an interesting bench. Overall, nice job.

I would hope for a much better offense in a 10 team league. I would definitely never draft 3 pitchers in the first five rounds. That being said, if I had this draft not all would be lost. I would ride this team for a month or two and hopefully get out to a nice start in the pitching categories. Then in about mid-May I would trade whichever of my big 3 pitchers was off to the hottest start for a big bat.
