i think you did decent.1b and 2b are both pretty weak, but you did OK in the OF. Your top 3 starters are strong, and if Daniel Cabrera can do what people are hoping then that could be a huge steal for you.

Yeah, I'm hoping Kinsler keeps up his hot spring and puts last year's dislocated finger behind him....I, too, hope Cabrera is a steal! :-)

Thats a pretty sick team..... for a 14 team league.

Sure 1B is weak, but its a deep position, and I bet you will be surprised with Overbay's production this year, I see a career year for him....

2B is solid, Kinsler will be a top 5 at season end, count on it, and Burke, is a sleeper finally getting playing time.

You look solid.....

thanks for helping me out,

P.S. How did you get that rotation, in a 14 team league.

Thanks for the praise - I hope all goes as planned! :)

I kept Lee, Matsui, Abreu, Ryan, and Johan as keepers...I took Michael Young with that #1 pick, (best SS available, since SS is terrible at depth), and went Ervin and Chris Young with my 2nd and 3rd round...

I also had high hope for both Overbay and Kinsler...:fingers crossed:

:)

it's very well balanced and as others have mentioned, very solid for a 14 team league. My only question is whether you need to have each position backed up so linearly. Likley you will need to make FA moves over the season and hopefully you're not hell bent on keeping each spot so perfectly backed up (except C). You might be able to horde a couple better back ups if you open you flexibility on your bench.

Overall, great job!

Good luck

this looks like a pretty good team in a 14 team league. id imagine its one of the best. good job getting all high upside guys for u backups. i dunno if trot nixon is available but i think he'll be better than dellucci. i think chris young will have a big yr and cabrera will finally start to gain some control in his pitches and get u 13 or so wins, anywhere from 180-200 K's and a era in the low 4's. ur weak spot is probably closer since u only have 1 out of 3 spots but in a 14 team league thats understandable...since tankersley isnt the closer i would pick up julio if someone hasnt already or check if any of these guys are available: broxton, zumaya, torres, dempster

Julio blew his first save though the other day...his life is very limited...I am hoping that they give Tankersley the job as soon as he comes off the DL...as for everyone else, only Broxton is available (and we don't have WW pickups until the 3rd week....)...

We'll see! Thanks for the input!
