Draft got a little out of hand. Categories: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OBP and IP, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/9

I realize that I have zero closers. I chose to instead focus on holds and keeping the ratios nice for ERA, WHIP and K/9 by employing the best middler relievers to accomplish that. I'm concerned about my hitters. I feel like I'm missing that one bat or something and have too many so-so OF. I think I need to try and package a few people to upgrade at least one OF position. Thoughts? Thanks!

Your offense does look like it needs some help. I think you will be average to slightly above average. You have a lot of solid just average to a little under average hitters. Catcher could be a problem your top 3 pitchers should be your strong point. Throwing closers for holds which could come and go or they could fall out of favor isn't something I would do. You will have a hard time being competitive in HR, RBI, IP, and SV. If you don't do really well in all the other categories I could see a long season ahead.

I think offence is okay. But adding more power would be wise. Corey Hart will be great this year. Willy Mo Pena may surprise you a little this season. He was pretty good with his new team last year.
For pitching, Dice-K may not do that well this year other than Wins and K's. Buehrle and Martinez are question marks. You have very good RP's for holds, but maybe trading a few for closers wouldn't be a bad idea. You do not want to tank any category.

Good luck!
