Very good team except for the fact that you only have 1 RP. I think you could move someone like Cueto for another good RP option. However your draft doesn't make a ton of sense to me. You picked up 5 players in you first 5 picks that should have been gone by the end of round 3. Also I can't figure out who you drafted after Zimmerman, but that could be just because your first 5 picks shouldn't of been possible. So it works out for you, oh your OF is going to struggle a bit too. I'd just make the one change I listed though.

Thanks for the feedback. I had the 5th pick and my first few picks went Cano, Verlander, Reyes, Beltre, Zimmerman. I took Gallardo then in the 6th, probably reached a little for him but I live in Milwaukee and I'm a big Brewer fan so I wanted him. I tried to go for OF after that but when Victorino went the pick right before me I didn't see anyone worth taking there so I decided to go with A-Rod in the 7th and Choo in the 8th. I realized my OF was going to be weak, but it was hard to pass up the other guys that fell to me in the earlier rounds.

Reyes in the 3rd and beltre in the fourth is awesome. I reached for Gallardo as well and I really like him.

Ya they passed over some guys that should have gone much earlier. Zimmerman went 45th overall? good pickup
