2B-Todd Walker

OF-Jason Bay
OF-Endy Chavez

If it was an auction, what were the prices you bought the players for? I like your hitting, but I think you should find another good outfielder, stat. Endy Chavez isn't exactly a sure thing in my book and as such, I think you could use some more speed -- but you definitely have plenty of power.

You have solid relief pitching; I don't think you need to worry about that for the rest of the draft. I think your starting pitching, on the other hand, could really use a top-notch starter. Mulder is, to an extent, a fairly unknown quantity for next year. Radke hasn't had a great track-record, fantasy-wise. Buehrle is merely mediocre.

Overall, I'll give you a B-. Your starting pitching and marginal speed are the only things holding you back.

although its albert pujols i think u overpaid for him IMO, you got some good deals like Radke, Sabathia, Rollins, and Walker, too much for endy chavez though and i would think about shopping around to improve your 3rd of spot, try tradin a guy like buehrle or takatsu as long as you have backup for them

Wow, some really great deals there. The only mistakes I see there are, like irish said, Pujols and Chavez. However, I think the other deals you got more than made up for those little bumps in the road. The fact that you still have $83 to spend is very promising. Just keep spending wisely, get a good OF and some top-notch starters, and make sure you don't leave any money on the table! Good luck! I think you have a solid foundation there, and really have a good shot at the money. :-)
