What did the first two rounds of your draft look like that you got both Howard and Utley? I've seen them both go in the first round of 10 team leagues.

During the draft, it looks like you compromised on speed and pitching to get big bats (i.e., Howard and Utley). Dunn again helps your power numbers but gives you no average or speed.

Your teams average age is very young, especially your pitching staff and bench, which is both good and bad for the keeper league. I'd look to add a veteran pitcher thats proven himself reliable, to add to your staff. I'm hopeful about Garland this season.

Look for a power hungry team that can afford to take on Dunn, and get a pitcher at the back end of his career (maybe a Mussina type that should still get you numbers) and put Crisp into your lineup, which gives you a bit more speed.

That said, I'm not sure what other teams look like, and you may be far enough behind in speed that Crisp won't help you.

Help me out?

I retained 4 keepers before the draft, and then traded them for picks. I ended up with 2 First round picks.
