    • Other than rodney you have no closers and rodney isn't even a closer. You have solid SP though but in my opinion I think you took both Konerko and Alvarez way to early. Konerko is old and his number will come back to earth. Last year I had Konerko but I got him in the late teen rounds for $1 in an auction draft. Now that he has a blow out last hoorah season (he's in his late 30s I believe) in 2010 people think he is legit fantasy player again. I see him hitting around 260-270 with 25 HR and maybe 90 RBI and 80 R. Still a solid season but those numbers are more of adam laroche-like to me and he is a late round 1b. I figure why get the guy who will cost three times the amount (at least) as a guy who will put up the same numbers. As for Alvarez, he has the potential to be a scary hitter (35-40 bombs with a 270 BA) the thing is he strikes out a friggin ton. If my memory serves me correctly he had like 120 Ks in on 340 some ABs. That is extremely high. I wouldn't be surprised if he turns into the next Mark Reynolds. He has yet to prove anything which is why I think the 6th round is WAY to high to pick him. You could have gotten him in the 15th-20th rounds I bet.

    • i actually really like this team...like some of your late rounders, like hudson and ike. but i dont have enough knowledge to know if your late late round picks are good are not.

    • fair at best

    • I like Carlos first and Lincecum second. Thirteen teams is very deep. Just remember, most leagues are won on the waiver wire / free agent pool. Keep your eyes peeled early!!! Good Luck!

    • i like the 5 top sp, but the hitting is not terrific. maybe you went for konerko too early.

    • not bad for a decent sized league..where did you go to for the mock drafts?

    • overall i really like this team ..pitching heavy ...but that really dont mean nothing .. my last 3 year teams have had at the most 5 players that i have drafted and have finished on the championship roster... best advice DO NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH ANY OF YOUR PLAYERS ..treat them as rentals..

    • I wouldn't go for Pitcher that early, pitching is deep, and I don't like CarGo but thats just my opinion.
      and going for a catcher in 3rd round isn't a good idea.

    • Its kinda hard to give feedback not knowing the exact scoring system, but Im not a fan of your 2nd, 3rd, and 6th picks to begin with. Keep mocking and try to improve.
