Pretty good team offense-wise.

Pitching? Not so much.

Maybe try to deal some of your OF depth for some pitching... maybe even try to deal for another closer. But i am impressed that you were able to get Wright, Helton, Sizemore, Hafner, and Soriano in the same draft. Good job there.

Rate mine:

i got those hitters because I pretty much ignored pitching for the first six rounds of the draft. My draft went like this:
#7 David Wright (a bit of a reach, but I wanted him)
#18 Alfonso Soriano (he slipped, and I could not help myself)
#31 Todd Helton (was considered an injury risk by others)
#42 Travis Hafner (people scared by lack of position)
#55 Grady Sizemore (I like the man here)
#66 Adam Dunn (too much power in the 6th to pass up)
#79 Curt Schilling (definitely a reach this high, but I like him)
#90 Armando Benitez (clearly pitchers are flying off our draftboard)
#103 Coco Crisp (had fallen far from my projected draft spot)
#114 Freddy Garcia (him over Lowry for consistency's sake)
#127 Matt Cain (wicked upside, maybe a reach again)
#138 Keith Foulke (undervalued, plus I love the Red Sox)
#151 Scott Kazmir (wicked upside again, not a reach here)
#162 Todd Jones (I like having a 3rd semi-quality closer)
#175 Julio Lugo (a STEAL here. I needed speed at everyday SS)
#186 Jon Lieber (still the ace of a good team, should win a bunch)
#199 Jeremy Hermida (a STEAL w/upside! I needed speed)
#210 Fransisco Liriano (pure speculation, might be with the team later)
#223 Rocco Baldelli (5 tool undervalued player)
#234 Jose Vidro (backup in case Soriano situation does not resolve)
#247 AJ Pierzynski (made a statement by drafted a C last)

i liked my draft then and I still like it now. Hitting is worth so much more than pitching because it is much more consistent. I know that my pitching is sketchy, but I guarantee that there are 10 FA pitchers on the wire now that will be difference makers.
