I see this team as pretty balanced, having a good shot to win all categories without having any category as a "lock". I think I drafted a good combination of undervalued veterans on the decline who can still be useful (Griffy Jr., Randy Johnson, Frank Thomas, Hoffman to an extent), and young talent with tons of upside (Young, Edwin, Buchholz, McGowan to an extent). I didn't get any of the top 5 pitchers, and I was trying to, but I couldn't resist Tex at the end of the second round. As a result I'm feeling a little pitching-light.

So, let me know how you see this team improving...

Thanks in advance; I'll be sure to check out your teams as well.

I agree with your assessment about being pitching tight, but again, if a few of your risks pan out, you should have some depth to trade from - be sure to sell high though, and don't be too attached to any streaks that might arise. If you can manage to get some proven pitching talent for what might be a lucky streak, then be sure to pull the trigger. I like your offense, and I think you'll do alright. Right now I see it as about a 3rd to 4th place finish, but if you get a solid pitcher then you can bump that ranking up --- Good draft and good luck this year!
