3B-Scott Rolen
SS-Edgar Renteria
OF-Magglio Ordonez
OF-Lance Berkman
OF-Carlos Lee
Util-Aubrey Huff
BN-Hank Blalock
BN-Angel Berroa
BN-Mark Teixeira

SP-Javier Vazquez
SP-Mark Prior

RP-Johan Santana
P-Roy Oswalt
P-Joe Borowski

Wow, I'm impressed. Your draft went great in my opinion. Since this is your first season, good luck. You're set at just about every position. And when Prior comes back you're team's gonna be tight!

Thanks drewski, I appreciate the comment. I thought that the draft went pretty well, but then again I don't really know what I was looking for. I think I have pretty solid pitching, but I am sort of nervous about the offensive side of the plate. Any ideas where I can make an improvement, or should I instead look at improving my pitching?

Take a close look at your outfield. If the Sox have a day off, you're down 2 with Mags and Lee. Both are great ball players, but you're gonna be down 2 players. I'd look to get another spot starter, or try upgrading to someone from a different team.

i agree with the last posting, your scheduling might get a lil screwy coz you do have two CWS OFs. Get rid of lee and try to get someone else (Dunn maybe, he might blow up this year) instead. BUt keep maggs!!!! Your pitching staff also looks aweseome !! GOOD LUCK !!!

Thanks for the advice. There's a lot of things to worry about when you are drafting your team! I am not sure what would be the best course of action then, as C. Lee should have a pretty high trade value. Dunn is still available as a free agent, but it would be dumb to just drop Lee to get him... Any advice?
