    Is my team any good?

    Got into a league with a few friends just for the heck of it. It just came together today so no research obviously, and the last time I was in a draft it was an auction where the first player up for bids was Ellis Burks, so I'm way out of practice with this. The ESPN draft tool seems to think it's pretty good, since it has me in 2nd based on projected stats, but I'm curious what live people think of it. It's 10 teams, 25 man roster with 22 active at any one time, and the normal stat categories (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, K, W, SV, ERA WHIP):

    C Jesus Montero
    1B Joey Votto
    2B Brandon Phillips
    3B Martin Prado
    SS Asdrubal Cabrera
    2B/SS Zack Cozart
    1B/3B Ryan Howard
    OF Matt Holliday
    OF Austin Jackson
    OF Alejandro De Aza
    OF Hunter Pence
    OF Coco Crisp
    UT Colby Rasmus

    P Stephen Strasburg
    P Craig Kimbrel
    P CC Sabathia
    P Jordan Zimmerman
    P Joe Nathan
    P CJ Wilson
    P Rafael Betancourt
    P Derek Holland
    P Wade Miley

    Bench Ryan Doumit
    Bench Jed Lowrie
    Bench Wandy Rodriguez

    Not bad, although I'd look to upgrade your OF and SP.
    Go BLUE!!!

    You should rule in runs and stolen bases. Home runs and RBI could be a problem.

    I would grab another closer.

    10 teams x 25 man roster = only 250 taken players. I have to believe you can grab upgrades off the free agent list for guys like Rasmus, Holland, Miley, Crisp, Cozart, Lowrie and Rodriguez.
