It's an 11 teamer and you end up with Tulo, Arod, and Fielder? Yikes, great top 3 rounds!

Offense: Well your IF is awesome so great job there. I'm confused what Ty Wiggington is filling in for? Even if he qualifies as a MI he shouldn't be owned in a 11 teamer, he's replacement level. Drop him for someone with upside. I'm not big on Encarnacion this year so I'd drop him as well, but certainly you can see how he does to start the season and go off that. You may be a little light on speed even with all the SB potential in the OF but it shouldn't be an issue. Just keep an eye on where you are compared to the other teams and slide a speed threat in at Util or MI accordingly. You might even have BA to spare with Ichiro, Prado, Tulo, etc to pick-up some low BA high power players.

Pitching: You lack an ace pitcher but it looks like you drafted several #2 guys to make up for it. You also went with quantity over quality for your RPs so you'll really need to watch your ratios. It's an average staff but with an eye to the WW you can make it pretty decent.

I'd use one or two roster spots to pick-up SPs or RPs off the WW and play spot match-ups. These should hopefully keep your ratios low enough to be competitive. You have a solid foundation, work the WW and you'll be fine!

I disagree on Wigginton. With his multiple positional eligibility and guaranteed playing time due to injuries he'll provide some value. Good 1st half last year-- if he starts out hot he's a player you can trade in June and July.

It is definitely an interesting draft you had. Like stated above, you had a great first 3 rounds of the draft.

I also have to agree that your pitching could use a little work, but it is not too shabby.. especially because who knows truly who will breakout this season, so its a wait and see game. I like your team, it will be interesting to see how the stats unfold for you. Like stated above, keep an eye on the WW, be active, and you should have a good year.


Take a look at mine if you could. viewtopic.php?t=425049

Great team! I like Wigginton and I think Billingsley breaks out this year. I also see Encarnacion makes big strides this year. Great squad.
