    SS - Caesar Izturis
    3B - Pedro Feliz
    C - Brandon Inge
    OF - Bobby Abreu
    OF - Adam Dunn
    OF - Aaron Rowand
    UT - Paul Konerko


    SP - John Smoltz
    SP - Brad Radke
    SP - Rodrigo Lopez

    I'm all for input and feedback and also, where to go from here. Corrective criticism is appreciated, as this is my first ever draft. Thanks ahead of time.

    Guys I have my eyes on from here forward are (in order):


    Jr. or Jay Gibbons
    Ryan Wagner
    John Buck (C)
    Jason Marquis
    Daniel Cabrera (SP, BALT #2)
    Ugueth Urbina (trade to be a CL?)
    Joe Blanton

    I would pick up Buck instead of Inge. While KC doesn't have much (read:any) offense, Inge plays in a huge park and has never really shown consistency at the plate/ Buck has much more upside, and is just as much a gamble as Inge to produce.

    Nice job on the outfield. I think all 3 will explode this season.

    For a 16 team league, you did very well.

    I'd take Buck over Inge, then load up on remaining SPs.

    Re: How am I doing?

    Inge is great from utility sake. C, 3B, CI, OF. That's pretty flexible. I would agree that Buck would be a great pickup.

    BTW is Miguel Olivo still available? He would also be another option at catcher should Buck become unavailable.

    Re: How am I doing?

    Buck is probably going to be available on my next pick. Jr. was already picked....where to go from here.


    And thanks for the help and comments fellas.

    Re: How am I doing?

    Is Adam Eaton available? If so, I'd take him. Good K numbers and he pitches in a great park. He's bound to rebound this year to win close to 14-15 games.

    Re: How am I doing?

    I tried to get Eaton...great call, but he went 3 picks before me...aargh.

    Got Jason and Marquis and Jay Gibbons. I want Wagner as I thing his WHIP and K's should help this year and might take over for Graves near the deadline???


    SP's from here or a lil depth at other pos?

    I'd bump Kazmir up on the list -- put him up with Lowry and Cabrera.

    He was picked prior to me even getting Rios. Rios's steals and avg are VERY nice this late. Also got Lowry...and still have Cabrera and Wagner targeted


    One thing that I'm nervous about is if I get the guys I want, I have Balt. #1 and #2 pitchers...bad idea? Could have very solid seasons, but.....


    edit to add: Got Rios, Lowry, and Wagner...Cabrera and Bush I'm looking at for my last two picks, I think. Feedback?
