Tell me how my team looks, any input would be appreciated, thanks!
it looks like you have an extra Inf and Of to me lol Too bad yahoo can't adjust the offence stats to reflect that if there were actually this many fielders on the field run and hit production would be down, as well as steals and rbi's.
ehh...yeah you're catching's weak, big deal, but i see other holes. lowell at 3b could kill you considering his health and durability, but derosa could fill in there if need be. your OF is decent, but not good. i think holliday has a .300/20/70/60 ceiling with OAK unless he gets traded. billy beane doesn't like to run, so there go his SB's and he was your 2nd pick i'm assuming, so with him and reyes your first couple of picks, your power and rbi numbers could lag with only fielder, dunn and burrell as your HR guys and none of them can hit for avg. i like your SP's for the most part, but burnett won't throw more than 140 innings in my opinion, and who knows what marcum can contribute after his elbow injury. jenks is your only closer and he doesn't strike any one out so i will tell you that frank francisco is a late round steal for saves and k's for your future drafts
your starting pitching looks great, but your catchers could definitely be better. I would trade a starter of yours (not your best of course), but an O.K. one and laird or varitek for a better catcher. You wont be able to get a joe mauer, but you could get a pretty good, less known catcher.
I think you did pretty well--
one question mark I have is RPs--if Ray is the main closer I think you are ok---Jenks is good, Street is just ok,
love Derosa & Lopez for their multiple positions--Reyes is an excellent pick at #5
you have the makings of a top 3 team I would say
