12 teams, 3 keepers, 5x5 roto league. The draft is currently in the 18th round.

What do you think so far, besides the fact that my closers blow? I am gonna attempt to trade for a closer as the season approaches.

:-t your team sucks learn how to draft. Na jking, well i like hitters a lot, Crosby is your weakest starter. How ever your pitching is not so hot, after Peavy and Clemens the drop off is huge, Baez is the only other one i really like. SO hitting is an A and pitching is below average. Just to let you know i will trade some pitching. I dont like Glaus btw ;-) .

Hope this helps, try and trade for another RP ;-D .

It looks to me like you went a little "keeper crazy". By that I mean that you subscribed to the youth movement a little too much during your draft. I'm not really liking your middle infield. Reyes is about as risky as they come, and I'm no big Crosby fan.

Your starting pitching is decent. I'm not a big Wolf fan, but the top of your rotation could be very good. Obviously, you could certainly use another closer. I would look to draft a sleeper candidate soon, or another possibility is to trade McPherson to someone who loves him way too much for a closer, since you already have two third-basemen.

My advice? Draft or trade for a closer soon and get a good MI back-up or two that you wouldn't mind playing in the event that Reyes is out with an injury or Crosby is stinking it up.

A back up MI is definitely on the agenda. Reyes is definitely an injury concern but I really like his upside, as the last I heard he was tearing up winter ball (injury free).

I am definitely gonna be trading for a closer, as I got caught on the wrong end of a closer run. Even the low end closers were gone by the middle of round 15.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Your advice is much appreciated.
