Fielder at 14th round is huge bargain (normally goes before pick 90), even if he doesnt have a starter, he has to take fielder. Worst comes, trade Derrek Lee for oswalt or zambrano, and the pitching suddenly becomes fairly solid because fielder is only a slight downgrade while you add an ace.
Escobar is definitely not a dissapointment. He gives you everything but wins, which is pretty solid. Hes a lesser version of sabathia, who goes between round 7 and 9.
Cuddyer is also a pretty solid player and you can trade him out to a team that needs power for a closer.
Scot Shields is a solid mid reliever, which helps in era and whip. His k/9 is solid, meaning his effect on K's is better than most SPs because he doesnt waste that many innings but gives alot of strikeouts. I don't mind drafting someone like zumaya or shields or dan wheeler in roto or h2h.
Chris Young and Chris burke are prospects with nice upside, nothing wrong going with sleepers in your last 3 rounds. I want to see what gem you picked up in your last 3 rounds xxxgobosoxxx?
Lastly, Putz and Saito are not similar closer. Putz has much more ks and his job is rock solid. Even if he implodes and give out 3 er/game for 5 games in a row, he probably can still close because Seattle has no other option, while if Saito implodes, Broxton takes over.
To improve your team, see if you can trade out Lee one of the top 6 SPs not named Santana or Carpenter, which are Zambrano, Peavy, Halladay, Oswalt, in no particular order.
Also, see if you can trade out thome for an arm like wagner/street. If not, you might net kazmir/harden/lackey/hamels. If not, you defintely can get someone like chris young or jered weaver. Weaver is a good bet because he is hurt.
If those dont work, try to work out something like magglio and a SP to see if you can upgrade somewhere on pitching. You can easily afford trading out a 1B/OF because sheff, berkman, and cuddyer got double eligibility.
