I think your batting is solid compared to the pitching, you may have problems at the beginning of your season with lackey out and chamberlain not starting until whenever. But if they work out you will have excellent depth.

I'm a huge fan of baseball in general but I'm just getting into fantasy sports, I did football this past season for the first time as well and had a blast so I'm now giving baseball a whirl and had fun drafting my players...
I'd like some feedback on my team, I know people will probably comment on me taking Chamberlin, Hughes AND Kennedy, I agree that it probably wasn't smart, but Kennedy was a last min. decision and wasn't intended from the get-go.
I'd appreciate some suggestions, I'm kind of nervous about my closers.
Anyway here ya go.
C - Russell Martin
1B - Adrián González
2B - Rickie Weeks
3B - Edwin Encarnación
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Manny Ramírez
OF - Carlos Beltrán
OF - Torii Hunter
OF - Ken Griffey Jr. (Util spot right now)
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury (BN right now)
1B, 3B, OF - Casey Blake (BN right now)
SP - John Lackey - Injured I know but he'll be back mid-may.
SP - Roy Oswalt
SP - Matt Cain
SP - Phil Hughes
SP - Ubaldo Jimenez
SP - Ian Kennedy
RP - Tony Pena
RP - B.J. Ryan
RP - Joba Chamberlin
RP - Hideki Okajima
Any input would be great, thanks.
I'm hoping Chamberlin and Okajima pick up some saves and keep the ERA down for my team.
Hard to comment on the draft without seeing the order, but I think I can guess pretty well who went when. I think you lost some value in some areas (not a huge fan of Beltran, Ramirez, or Martin where you likely took them, I prefer to take players that are on the upside, or plateau, of their careers, not the downside). You're weak at 2B and 3B, and a lot of your OF are old and likely to break down.
You're right that your relievers are a problem; you have no probable starting closers (BJ is likely going to do almost nothing this year, it is too soon after TJ surgery). I don't like the Lackey pick, assuming you took him before round 10 or so . . . he is going to lose 6 or 7 starts at best, and there is no guarantee that he will be his 'old self' when he comes back. Joba and Okajima will have minimal value, presumably you can stream them in to assist with WHIP and ERA but overall I think you have some holes that need addressing.
