I have mixed feelings about this team. I think there's more risk in your offense than you intended. There is some good boom potential, but between Utley, A-Rod, Holliday, Rollins, Ethier, Martin and Sizemore you've got too many aging vets who you can't necessarily expect a whole lot from anymore. You're going to lose value somewhere and may not gain a whole lot unless some of them play above their cost/projected value. At the very least, its four or five our guys (minus Rollins and maybe Utley) who probably can't be counted on for speed much at all anymore. The only guys who might give you decent speed here are Rollins, Bourjos, and Rios, and none are much more than 30 SB threats with potential for quite a bit less, so speed is going to be a big issue early. Votto, Martin, Utley and Cespedes might give you a bit of sneaky speed, but none is a major threat and the latter two have a lot of bust potential. They're more complimentary speed guys, not guys who will change your outlook in the category drastically. Otherwise everything looks kosher in the other cats, but if someone like Holliday doesn't produce to expected levels, all of a sudden guys like Stanton, Rollins, and Martin may drag your AVG down, or if A-Rod gets hurt RBI could become an issue, and I think you've given too much opportunity for something like that to happen. The only category you really have a built in floor with is HR, thanks to Votto and Stanton.

Your pitching is very strong, but I do think you invested too heavily early with Kershaw and Lincecum (though if Lincecum fell to the fourth, that's fine, but I'm guessing its more likely Stanton did--I know neither Votto or Kershaw did). SP are four category guys at best and tend to be much more volatile than hitters. Personally, I wouldn't draft any pitchers as early as those guys are going, let alone two (the fourth is the earliest I consider drafting pitchers in snakes, but I prefer to wait till the 5th or 6th depending on how the draft is going--my earliest targets this year are Hamels, Greinke, and Price so if all three are still on the board and I pick in the middle of the 4th round I'll usually hold off and hope I get a bargain on one in the 5th). If you can, I'd try to trade one of them for someone like Andrew McCutchen, or pair one with A-Rod or Utley for someone like David Wright or Ian Kinsler and a #2 SP like Bumgarner, Lester, or Gallardo (who are my typical fallbacks if I miss on Hamels, Greinke, or Price). SB would go from being a weakness to a strength and it would help offset a lot of the risk in the other categories, and you wouldn't be sacrificing a whole lot. I do also really like Hudson at that price. The underlying numbers were pretty similar to Ian Kennedy last year. Even if Kennedy had more roto value, I think they're pretty close, and Hudson could easily be better this year if their luck flips.

RP looks solid. Chris Perez has some major bust potential (his peripherals were awful last year) but he has a decent hold on the job so should get his saves and Jansen helps correct for the lack of Ks. Wilson and Bailey are both injury risks, but with three closers and a setup reliever who's better than his closer, you should be fine.

Great job on that trade ... Perez out for the season and Cespedes is unknown. Crisp could get you 50 steals and Lilly is a solid (not great but solid) pitcher. I think you fleeced him.

I agree what has been said above... High risk/high reward (but I'm doing the same in my league). About your trade: cespedes is unknown. He might be the next Braun or a big failure. You might want to see if you can pick up some rookies like Rendon? Are you in a keepers league?

A lot, a lot, alot of risk with Rollins, ARod, Utley, Martin. I like your OF. If those other guys are healthy all year it could be a sick ass team. If they are not, then you are in for a long season as it will be hard to replace all 4.

Pitching is definetly good coming out of the draft. Guerra is the closer though, I'd peace out Jensen, no need keeping those guys in H2H leagues.
