8-team H2H standard points (ESPN). 3 keepers. 3rd pick snake draft. C: Wilin Rosario 1B Paul Goldschmidt 2B: Jason Kipnis 3B: David Wright SS: Jose Reyes 2B/SS: Jedd Gyorko 1B/3B: Chris Davis OF: Andrew McCutchen OF: Carlos Gomez OF: Jay Bruce OF: Jason Heyward OF: Domonic Brown UTIL: Pedro Alvarez Bench: Curtis Granderson Bench: Matt Adams
P: Madison Bumgarner P: Jordan Zimmermann P: Gerrit Cole P: Mike Minor P: Julio Teheran P: David Robertson P: Jason Grilli P: Sonny Gray P: Chris Archer Bench: Casey Janssen
My three keepers were McCutchen, Goldschmidt, and Davis.
I love my offense, especially my infield, but I'm not very high on my pitching. I held off picking a pitcher until the 10th round because of all the great batters available. I originally drafted Jean Segura but I traded him for Bumgarner because I needed pitching and had 3 other MI.
Let me know what you think. Leave a link so I can help with yours. Thanks for your help
Although this my first year playing fantasy baseball in quite some time (I played in college and follow the game quite a bit), I like this team and it sounds loaded with bats and young up and coming arms. You got McCutchen, Goldschmidt, Kipnis, Wright, Heyward, Brown, Reyes, and Chris Davis and that sounds like a lineup that can win you a league. Also, you got some good arms in Minor, Cole and Zimmerman. This team has makings of a nice year as long as everything goes smooth and easy for ya.
Make sure to take a look at my lineup also and give some feedback. Thanks.

I actually really like your pitching and your bats are nice too. My first thought was for you to try and move Reyes and Wright. I know they are good, but I see Reyes being hurt a lot. So maybe you can sell him and get a great price by getting a decent SS back to replace Archer. Wright as good as he is also lacks due to his team, but you could get a great price for him and maybe replace Robertson, Archer, Gray, and then get a nice 3b back. However I would not blame you for not listening to me at all. As you for sure have a nice team to work with! A trade or two and you should be a nice contending team!

I agree with this also, not huge on him as others are, but I have been known to be wrong, however with the moving of who I said above, I believe you could get a lot with those two guys and get rid of an injury risk

I feel this is tough because in an 8 team league every team is going to have a bunch of talent. This is a nice team, tho i'd say there are too many health/question marks for my liking. This is a very nice pitching staff for holding off so long. I think this could still be a very strong team. This is one of those things where I would hold off on doing too much now, but be sure to keep an eye on the wire
In an 8 team league I believe your pitching will hurt you.. I'm looking at it and telling myself it's not bad.. (and it isn't horrible), but in an 8 team league I am thinking everyone else's must be kick @.. again, I don't hate the pitching, but I think (and hope im wrong) it could hurt you if everyone else's is really good..
if you cant hang with the bigdawg get on the porch :)

^^ This was my thoughts... Team looks good but it is small league. Getting MadBum for Segura I think was slick. I agree that you pursue some further pitching using Reyes as the prize. I have lukewarm feelings on Granderson as well.
