Ahhhhh, yes, the Gloucester Fisherman... :-)

I really liked most of your drafting. Your positional players are top-notch for the most part, but as you're aware, Crosby's a big question mark at SS. The talent and ability is there for a big season, but it seems like we've all been saying that for the past several years..and what do we have to show for it? With this said, he's in a loaded lineup and if he can stay healthy, he should be able to produce at LEAST respectable numbers.

I'd definitely say that pitching will be your Achilles heel. I wouldn't be too confident with Willis and Arroyo heading my pitching staff, as both are better suited as #2 or #3 fantasy starters, at best. Blanton's ERA and Wang's lack of strikeouts also worry me a bit. You have great potential at closer, but some more question marks...Lidge's mental state, Isringhausen's health and healing, and Borowski's reliability.

Overall, you definitely have the ability to compete, though. Nice draft. ;-D
