    Re: My Draft - Check It Out

    I like your offense a lot. You are pretty balanced. You have steals covered with Roberts and Reyes, and you will do real well in runs too. I think you are lacking in RBI and AVG some though, but not bad.

    The part of your team I'd be worried about is starting pitching. You have a 2 guys that are injury prone and will most likely only make around 20 starts in Burnett and Johnson. Wang only help you in wins and ERA. His WHIP isn't good and his Ks are horrible. Maine is a solid pick, although he could come back a little bit from last year. I also think Greinke could be a sleeper, but his Ks and WHIP aren't great either.

    Starting pitching is the easiest spot to fill throughout the year though so...
    Matta = Really good

    Re: My Draft - Check It Out

    Here is my draft that I did today. 5x5 12 team.

    1. (3) David Wright 3B
    2. (22) Vladimir Guerrero OF
    3. (27) Lance Berkman 1B,OF
    4. (46) Troy Tulowitzki SS
    5. (51) Robinson Canó 2B
    6. (70) Carlos Peña 1B
    7. (75) Félix Hernández SP
    8. (94) Roy Halladay SP
    9. (99) Francisco Liriano SP
    10. (118) Jeff Francoeur OF
    11. (123) Huston Street RP
    12. (142) Jim Thome Util
    13. (147) Johnny Damon OF
    14. (166) Ted Lilly SP
    15. (171) Alex Gordon 1B,3B
    16. (190) Yunel Escobar 2B,3B,SS
    17. (195) Troy Percival RP
    18. (214) Ramón Hernández C
    19. (219) Kevin Kouzmanoff 3B
    20. (238) George Sherrill RP
    21. (243) C.J. Wilson RP
    22. (262) Heath Bell RP

    I pretty much punted steals but feel I will do really well in the other 4 offensive categories. I have some starting pitching issues myself as I only drafted 4. I do feel that Hernandez will breakout bigtime this year, in his 3rd season. I also like Halladay and of course believe Liriano is a Top 5 pitcher if he stays healthy.

    This league has 5 pitching spots you can fill RP-RP-P-P-P so I have 5 relievers to pitch in those spots.

    I think on the pitching side I'll do really well in WHIP, ERA, and SVs, OK in Ks, and will be lacking in Wins.

    Suggestions?

    mlbfan30 I wish Ortiz would fall to me at #18 in all my leagues! I agree with everyone else that you are going to need good health or FA pickups to have a chance with your starting pitching.



    I wish I could have made our draft...

    agreed on all of the above. Your pitching is going to struggle. Baseclogger I purposed a trade to you already. Let me know what you think.
