Overall pitching looks great. I think to much Reds pitching as of now.

Right now I would look for upgrades over these players.
Edwin Encarnación, J.D. Drew, (inj.) Cueto.

Couple players I'm wathcing are Jose Lopez 2B/3B and Mike Morse 1B/OF.
Morse is having a great spring and Lopez moving from 3B Seattle to 2B Colorado. The position he is more comfortable at.
Both players could easily hit 25 HR a piece. And I think you could use a little more power.

yeah, I'm a little res heavy on pitching, but other than Cueto, had no plans to start anyone. dropped Drew for Torres. Disagree with you on the power as I have 9 players with 20+ HR potential, and at least 5 with 30+ HR potential. My best draft in years I think.

Don't get me wrong I think you have a good team. I see the following.

Base on RotoWire projections:

C - Soto 23HR
1B - Tex 34
2B - Weeks 26
3B - Prado 15
SS - Castro 6
OF - Bruce 33
OF - Quentin 29
OF - Gardner 4
Utl/DH - Hill 28

198 HR. With the right managing you could squeeze 20 more HR's in your overall numbers. My question to you is, is 218HR enough to help win your league? I usually need no less than 240HR to be in the top 3.

2 utility spots means another 20+ from EE add 10 more to roster juggling. Plus I think Castro will hit about 15, not 6. they are undervaluing him a bit.

Castro won't hit 7.

Is Travis Wood the default Reds fan last pick in all drafts? I had him last year and he helped me out a lot. I grabbed him again, as well.

I just don't see a 21 year old 160 lb kid suddenly discovering his power stroke in the midst of a power outage in MLB.

I drafted him myself, but I'm skeptical of the Spring outburst. I'll take the under on 10.

I'll take the over. 81 home games in wrigley mean he'll get some wind aided shots. plus 9 games in the HR friendly NL Central opponents (PIT, CIN, HOU). I'm thinking 14.
