well you didn't believe them did you? That's a great team. Fuentes is no lock to be the closer, and Ogando isn't a lock for the rotation.

At the first guy....yeah Ogando was my last pick and I had no idea who to take and I always try to load up on cheap closers so I can build a lead in saves before most of them lose their jobs and get traded.

At the second guy...YIKES

Don't worry about the second response, that's just a spambot. The mods will clear it up.

I think it's pretty clear that you went for offense first and pitching second here. While that's fine, and I'll be using a similar tactic for this year, it just means you'll have to be on your toes to pick up hot arms as the season goes on. This is definitely not a team that you'll be able to sit back and let operate on its own. Greinke is a fine anchor, but Shields was night and day in 2010 and 2011, who knows which one will show up in 2012? Luebke won't get you any wins with San Diego's offense, and I think Lewis and McCarthy are going to disappoint this year.

That said, you did a fine job crafting a solid offense. I like your infield a lot in particular. I'm not a huge fan of Josh Hamilton, as the guy can't see during the day and can't seem to stay on the field, but Bourn, Victorino, and Werth are nice choices. I wouldn't worry about locking up SB, you can easily pick up speed guys over the course of the season. It's power that's at a premium in fantasy baseball these days, and you've done a nice job of getting that.

speed wins SB and Runs every week power drops BA. but nice team. Bourn is a better player on the braves and freeman wont hit a sophmore slump. pitching is ok nothing speacial and closers youll be fine about. you team isnt terrible but its not great...just being honest.

Thats honestly the way I feel....the team looked better on draft day, when I saw them on paper together later I was kind of disappointed. Its workable though. There is always pitching to add in April and May.
