Very solid team...a few question marks as I'm sure all teams have.

I don't like your OF too much besides Holliday. Frazier and Ross don't do much for me, while Revere will at least help with SB. Gomez is a nice fit and provides help in several categories. Jeter could be a question mark too, but having Zobrist who's able to play SS if needed and Kipnis to move to 2B if that's the case covers that problem. You could even move Zobrist to your OF, slide Kipnis in and fill someone else in at MI.

I like your pitching a lot...getting Kershaw and Verlander is incredible. Shields gives you wins and Sanchez is a solid #4. Garza's going to start the season on the DL so that hurts a bit, but your staff can afford to lose him for a while.

I'd give this an 8.5/10...just think you need a bit more power and a better OF

I really like your draft in terms of seeming draft selection (I went back and tried to extrapolate you picks in the top rounds) and getting value from each pick. I think you made a lot of smart value picks, but it seems that most of them were in hitting because you flat out went for the strongest pitchers on the pitching. As a result, your pitching strength is undeniable and your hitting, while shrewdly drafted, requires some risk/reward guys to really come through to compete with guys that went hard on hitting in the first 5-6 rounds.

I like your team though and think you're going to be competitive each week since your pitching should win you a good number of stats. At some point after a couple of months you may have to decide to focus on three or four categories in hitting and "punt" on one or two (for example, you have both some solid .avg guys but some guys that might be stinkers in that stat as well) but I think you can definitely have some fun with this team.

Congrats and good luck.

I think some boys are going to be mad when they finish below you in the standings.

This is a solid team. I agree with lambo that the biggest weakness is the OF but you have the added versatility of Zobrist if needed.

A Gonz is going to be a monster this year and Freeman will continue to progress.

I'd die to have one of Verlander or Kershaw in my rotation, never mind both. That is just sick, even in a 10 teamer.

She could always move Agonz to outfield as well. Without knowing rounds it looks like a good draft to me. I'm a big fan Agonz, Holliday, and Zobrist and it seems like you probably got them for pretty good value.
