1B Eric Hosmer
2B Ian Kinsler
SS Starlin Castro
3B Miguel Cabrera - using Daniel Murphy while waiting for eligibility

Util Paul Goldschmidt
Util Lucas Duda

SP Cliff Lee
SP Yovani Gallardo
RP Drew Storen

My initial reactions post-draft:

OF looks really bad, but underestimated OF demand during the early rounds

Thoughts or comments? Thanks in advance guys!

A decent shot, but a bit too much risk here for my taste. We have no idea what jesus montero is going to be yet. Could he have a monster season? Sure. I think its more likely, though, that he has his rookie growing pains and if he does, you dont want russell martin in there as an every day. Same with paul goldschmit and duda, dont get me wrong, I like paul goldschmit, but is he an every day guy to count on at this point in his career? I'm not so sure.

I Like the late value you have with Bud Norris and Scott baker and sergio santos is prepped for a big year in toronto. Overall, if a few things break right, you could have a monstrous team, but I'm not sure at this point.

Your IF is very good. This would be a great squad in a keeper league! I think your pitching is sneaky deep. Seems like you drafted to pitching since others were making a run on position players. You might consider packaging some upside OF+SP for a solid "know what you're gonna get" OF-er, maybe like a Beltran or Victorino or something. Not super top end, but solid.

Also, I see no worries with Martin as your backup C at this point. Catcher is actually pretty deep this year. Somebody will step up, if Montero doesn't. Most people got Yadier Molina off waivers at some point mid last season. Just saying that guys pop up if both of your C's fail you.

Agreed with first reply, you're looking for consistency and I usually avoid rookies/question marks in the draft, even if their upside is potentially more than a vet's numbers that are almost surely going to be there. I would recommend trying to get good value out of those unknowns through a trade with an owner who overvalues them, but at the same time one or two breakout players can put your team above the rest. Just my thoughts, this is only my 3rd season so I'm no expert. Help with mine? Thanks!
