From top to bottom, I really like your offense. Not too much to say other than nice picks! ;-D

As for your pitching, you must have been picking hitters while everyone else was drafting pitchers. Your starting pitching is good, and has the potential to be great, but is filled with questions. How will Maddux do without Glavine in Atlanta? Will Mark Prior turn into an ace? With Josh Beckett be plagued by blisters again this season? Can Matt Clement build on last year's success and strike out totals? Can Brad Penny stay healthy? Lots of questions, but if the answers are positive for you, your starting pitching will be near dominant.

Your relief corps is filled with closers who are most definitely at the bottom of the relief pitching ranks. Hopefully all four combined with pitch about as well as two of the better ranked closers. MacDougal and Carter both pitch for lousy teams and won't get too many save opportunities. Who knows how long Matt Mantei can stay healthy. Who knows if Braden Looper can handle being a closer. Again, a lot of questions in your pitching staff.

All in all, your team should be successful, powered by a strong offense, and the hope that at least some things should go right in your pitching staff. Just be prepared to act when some of the question marks go wrong.

thx for the comments. you're right, i did draft hitting over pitching so for pitching i had to go for guys with upsides rather than real established studs (other than, arguably, maddux, who i think is just a machine). i also tried to cobble together some closers at the very final rounds of the draft; hopefully i'll be able to pick up enough saves to be competitive. but i refuse to pay a closer premium for one lousy category!
