Just after the draft, most guys are ready to book the championship. Anyway, take a look at my team. Let me know potential moves you think I could make.
9-team 7x7 roto Keeper league (add K's and OPS for hitters, L's and HR's for pitchers) with 3OF, 2UTIL. Guys with asterisks were my keepers.

Here is my team:

C-Brian McCann
1B-Albert Pujols
2B-Jemile Weeks
3B-Adrian Beltre*
SS-Alexei Ramirez
OF-Giancarlo Stanton*
OF-Justin Upton*
OF-Jacoby Ellsbury*
Util-Billy Butler
Util-Andrew McCutchen*
Bench-Nick Markakis
Bench-Eric Hosmer*

I also have Lawrie and D. Jennings as prospects. They aren't on my team now but can be any time.

SP-CC Sabathia
SP-Zack Greinke
SP-Brandon Beachy
RP-J.J. Putz
RP-Carlos Marmol
P-Chris Perez
P-Jonny Venters
P-Alexi Ogando
Bench-Chris Carpenter
Bench-Jaime Garcia

Dang, great looking team man. Very good balance of offense and pitching, and no holes at all. You might want to make sure you get a back up for Jemile Weeks though, just in case he slumps. You should definitely be in the playoffs though.

Thanks @ATL. There were some other 2B available (Hill, K. Johnson, etc). I figured they will still be around if Weeks struggles.

Anybody else have thoughts??

Wow, your team looks stacked. Offense will be very formidable and I think that your pitching will be good enough to compete. This team looks like it's built for a banner.

I guess I have to make it unanimous. I'd like to have something constructive to say but you did too good of a job, heh. I love brandon beachy this year too... you are set from top to bottom.

Agreed that your team looks great- I've never done keeper and this is only my 3rd season doing fantasy. We use a different scoring scheme that uses QS and K/9 instead of W and K's- Funny how someone like Carpenter was a 2nd-to-last round pick out of 40+ SP drafted in my league. Help me please? Thanks ;-D

Come on guys, get mean. Get nasty. I can pick some stuff apart. Like Weeks. He's an upside almost rookie with hardly any game experience and he's my only 2B. Or Chris Perez might not have a job in a month.

lol. Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but even if Chris Perez loses his job there should be some solid RP available for a 9-team league? Given that you didn't pay for those saves on draft day??? 8-o

Well I've never done a 9 team league before, so I don't know if all the teams look this stacked, but yours definitely appears to be so. However, I'd have to believe with only 9 teams, you can have a more sure thing 2b. Since your OF is so stacked, you could consider moving one for a stud 2b. You'd still have Hosmer to plug in at Util and wouldn't really have any holes across the board.

Lend a hand?

well, I love Jemile weeks this year, so I can't give you too hard a time about that. He had a fantastic minor league career and hit well in his time last year, I really see no reason why it shouldn't continue. True, he isn't that major league tested but he isn't like a paul goldschmit, he had 400Abs last year.

As far as perez, I agree with the poster who said that in a 9 team league, there has to be somebody worth getting on the wire if he falls through
