    1B – Ryan Howard
    3B – Miguel Cabrera
    OF - Carl Crawford
    OF – Matt Holliday
    OF – Bobby Abreu
    Either you were drafting with monkeys, or this team is over exaggerated, because how ANY one of the top 3 above fell to the third round is beyond me, and Holliday and Abreau- the same could be said for them in the 4th and 5th rounds (or wherever you were lucky enough to get them)
    Looking on down your roster, it looks like others were pitching frantic or something and you were very wise to wait because you have not the greatest staff, but still a very good one, with potential for greatness.
    This team is clearly the favorite even without seeing other rosters, unless someone else knew what they were doing and somehow got
    Pujols, Arod, and Soriano with there first three rounds. as those are the top players at their respective positions, and somehow you got the 2nb best 1B, 2nd best 3B, and the 2nd best OF.
    Can I join this league next year?

    Re: Another rate my team thread

    Thanks

    There are definitely some idiots in my league. If you scroll down to the thread titled "Draft Strategy" I posted the results of about the first 7 rounds. I made a mistake taking Howard at 2 over Reyes probably, but Cabrera fell to me at 19 and I got Crawford at 22. IIRC I could have had Jason Bay but felt I needed to make a move on pitching at the time because I was getting shut out of the big names.

    On the pitching I am hoping that I can rotate starters to increase my wins and Ks to compensate for a staff that is going to be somewhat less than stellar on ERA and WHIP.

    Re: Another rate my team thread

    Do you have the tail end results of your draft? Being a keeper league I'm pondering where BJ Upton and a few other players went in the draft. I would also consider taking a roster flier on Liriano since your roster is so stacked for this season. I like the Homer pick obviously, but part of the key is building for the future. How many are you able to keep, what are the keeper rules of your league (forgo draft picks, etc) As of now, your linuep is built to win for like the next 10 years, but I would seek a few stud pitchers for the future who could be had on the cheap before the other owners get to see them pitch and realize what they are holding.

    Re: Another rate my team thread

    I get to keep any 16 players provided that they are not free agents. Someone took Liriano early - I believe without realizing he was injured - maybe he would trade Liriano for one of my marginal starters if it is worth the risk. The realm of players available is all those listed in Yahoo fantasy ball. Two pitchers that stand out as being available are Jeremy Sowers and Tim Lincecum. Philip Hughes is not available as a player yet but I am keeping on the lookout for when he is added.

    Position prospects - One guy just waived B.J. Upton to pick up Anibal Sanchez so he is available. Maybin has not been added to Yahoo yet and I dropped Chris B. Young to pick up Murton because I felt I needed a ready to contribute outfielder in case of injury. I also dropped Brandon Wood for Aaron Hill because the Angels keep moving him all over the infield and if he comes up as a 3B he does not have much value to me. Anyone else I should be on the lookout for? (On a side note I will probably regret not drafting Howie Kendrick and I was planning on going after Delmon Young with my pick immediately after he was taken)

    I have draft results through 16 rounds that I have posted below. I will put together the tail end of the draft as soon as I can. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Another rate my team thread

    Pick up Upton YESTERDAY, drop hill if needed, or whoever else you dont like, Upton will be 3B and 2B eligible very shortly as he will play 2B. Cantu was DFA'd to bring Upton up even though upton is not good defensively and could use more seasoning, He has 40+ SB's potential for this season with a prob average near .290. He has good potential for power, SO GRAB HIM NOW.
    as for others, I would pick up Sowers and drop igawa or Bonser, Im not that high on Linecum taking a roster spot. As for not getting Kendrick, I agree I love him, have him in almost every league I am in, but that is neither here nor there, you have a great team, dont dwell on not getting one player. I would also mention that in a Keeper league, guys like BJ Upton and other prospects, Bailey, etc. have way more value than they are going for in your drafts. Owners will soon realize that keeper value makes a player more valuable than in a traditional redraft league. With that being said I would keep in mind that towards the trade deadline you will be able to acquire all the bench help and lineup fill ins you will need to make a run (much better ones than available on WW) if you fill alot of your bench spots with highly rated prospects who are soon to be ML's, or are in their first year. Some teams (and acc. to draft results, many teams) will fall out of contention and will want to "rebuild" for the following season by moving vets in order to have better keepers to position themselves for next season.

    Re: Another rate my team thread

    as for up and coming starters keep an eye onin no part. order)
    Jason Hirsh Col
    Matt Garza Min
    Adam Miller Cle (will start in AAA)
    Andrew Miller Det (could be up this season, maybe not)
    Mike Pelfrey ChiC
    Yovani Gallardo Mil- may not be up til June or So, but I dont look forw. to the Reds facing him
    Luke Hochevar KC (prob. wont be up until 08 or mid 08)
    As for Linecum, I do like him, but not to add right now, nor would I necessarily add any of these players right now. Because the way your league looks, they will be available for at least the first few weeks. I would wait until after then and see exactly where your pitching stands, you may have to move a hitter for a pitcher.
