That's a nice team, with some great bargains. I love Posada for $1, Castro for $4 and Young for $4. Those are going to be huge payoffs this year, with the latter two very nice potential keepers. I think your offense looks great, though I hope Bautista can hit over .250 for you! Or are you punting BA? :-D

You did a great job on SP too. I love Bedard for $1. Even if he gives you only 80 IP (assuming they are quality innings) you've made back your investment. If he stays healthy, then he's another potential keeper.

Great bench too. McGehee, Tabata, Lind, Hill, Fowler -- all good bargains and great insurance for your team who will be able to fill in holes for you.

The weakness, of course, is saves. You might consider moving some of that bench depth for a closer, or packaging them with Gregg/Nunez for an upgrade. You'll need to be quick on the waiver wire to grab saves. If you do that, you're going to be in great shape to make a run at the title. I like this team.

(Thanks for the feedback on my team. ;-D)

Thanks, I thought that I did pretty well considering I didn't really spend for any of the top players in the draft. Being my first auction draft I was a little concerned with my strategy of looking for bargains and strying not to overspend for the top guys. I was thinking about trying to trade Dunn and someone from the bench to get a consistent closer and another SP to protect Bedard. I didn't mean to punt BA lol :-? I am hoping that Castro (whom I believe will hit .300 or near) and Soo-Choo will help me there. And I really hope that Morneau can contribute in that aspect as well. Thank you for the input/advice. :-D
