I didn't get excited with your results as well. Normally when I draft, I usually stay away from pitchers until around the 10th round or so. Bats tend to yield better results than pitchers I think and tend to be more reliable than pitchers. Case in point, you got a No. 1 in Hamels in the 10th round and Jiminez in the 13th. That's a good 1-2 punch right there. You could have saved the No. 5 and No. 9 for improvements at the SS and OF positions. Hopefully you'll get a bit more excited with your next mock draft. ;-D

Please help with my team?

Just scanning the results briefly , I think Youkilis(4), Johan SAntana(5) and Josh Willingham(14) went too high in those positions.

I agree with this. Also, Soriano was a slight overdraft to me. I think reaching for pitchers there, as well as one dimensional players like Willingham, was the issue. I'm also more of a cheap saves advocate (Lyon/Qualls/etc) than paying for Bell when you still have other holes to fill, as well.

I might not have taken AG there but its hard to argue much with that 1. Someone has to take Soriano but it won't be me & it certainly won't be in the first 60 players.
