Two things jump out to me: a lack of power and an excess of pitching. I'm not high on CC this year and would love to see you send him away to get a 30+ HR hitter. Your staff should help you stay in a lot of match-ups. I don't hate Tulo at 8, especially with Reyes there if something happens to him. Harper's a nice grab in round two as he should be a keeper for years. You've got a decent amount of young players, especially early, and I think that translates into a solid start to a team for years to come. You're not gonna blow teams out of the water, but you'll definitely be competitive

@Lambo alright fair analysis... Think your right about CC, just picked him up because he was left pretty late on.

Also: Unrelated but looking for funny a team name; maybe something w/ harper incorporated... haha the stuff im coming up with has been pretty terrible

I pretty much agree with this. The only thing is, I think Harper might have been a bit of a reach at #11. I think you might have still seen him at #26 (50-50, depending if there was another guy uber high on him) but I can see you reaching a bit if you really liked him as a long-term keeper.

I think four pitchers in rds 5-9 is a pretty strong commitment to pitching and agree that you might be able to get some hitting value for that if you can find a guy light in SPs.

I'm curious though, was this an ESPN draft?

A pretty good draft with room to grow.

Yep, Espn dynasty. And as for harper, I like him as a keeper and lots of guys in my league (myself included) are nats fans
What kind of trade would you suggest in terms of SP's for hitters?

I like yours better than my first two, but how about The Bryce is Right!

Something about an exciting player like Bryce and Cream in the name just doesn't feel right at the subconscious level. :-X
