just from a quick look at it, it looks like you tried to save your money early. I dont see any top guys. Im not a fan of this strat. I mean add the 17 that you had left to what you paid for EE and you might have been able to get votto or someone. For me its better to error on the side of paying too much for a great player then to pass on those guys.

Melky at 12.00 could be a nice pickup. I think hes gonna have a great year. Some good pitchers also. Gio im targeting this year also. Seems to be getting good value. good luck!

You just leave that much at the table. $17 would have upgraded you at a couple of spots. It doesn't look like a terrible team, but I would like to see a couple of the other teams to compare, I am sure they are stacked. $8 for 4 closers, that seems crazy. In the Yahoo format, your starting lineup should be loaded. If this were a snake draft, it's like you didn't get a 1st round pick.
