In order, though I should say that you should be able to write your lineup in an easier to read fashion.

3b- Todd Zeile Joel Pineiro

Miller won't hurt any more than most catchers, Durazo is injury prone, Biggio is old and past his prime, Jeter should be solid enough, Ziele is mediocre, Griffey is clearly injury prone, Winn is mediocre (He wouldn't have been an all star if he wasn't a Devil Ray), Hidalgo has hit more than 20 hrs or hit better than 300 or driven in more than 100 once in his baseball (minor and major) league career and now he's been shot, Dye is injury prone, Aurilia is a good pick, Ventura is past his prime, Mientiewicz is fine as long as you don't like Hrs, Ellis and Tucker are negilagable.
Pitching: Zito is great, too bad you couldn't draft Colon at offensive line, Brown and Clemens were once great - too bad it's not 1998, Pineiro is a top notch starter, Wells is awful (if he wins 19 games again, I'll eat my hat), Washburn is fine, Jennings is good though I'd avoid him at coors, and DeJean is okay.
You don't have any closers and your offense and starters aren't good enough to make up for it. I would be surprised if you didn't finish near last. Also, I suspect that you're a Yankees fan because of yr preponderance of their players. It's always a mistake to draft based on yr favorite players, which is what I suspect you did.
