    2B Robinson Cano
    3B David Wright
    SS Dee Gordon
    OF Matt Holliday
    OF Desmond Jennings
    OF Shane Victorino
    Util Lance Berkman
    SP Justin Verlander
    SP C.J. Wilson
    RP Huston Street
    RP Brandon League
    P Brandon Beachy
    P Hiroki Kuroda
    P Jaime Garcia
    BN Daniel Murphy

    • you need to be deeper in starting pitching.

    • Not a bad team right now, but you're going to have to address your OF down the road because Holliday, Victorino, and Berkman aren't getting any younger (assuming Berk will even be OF eligible much longer). Pitching isn't bad but I probably would've stayed away from Kuroda (AL East hitter's park). I love Street this year. Your biggest concern right now should be your bench. It's thin (Chisenhall might be a good keeper tho). Troll the waiver wire and you'll be fine.

    • Don't hate it, but don't love it either. SS has gotta be addressed. Dee would be a nice backup.

    • I think your pitching is fine. Great pick-up with Beachey. Three quality starters is enough. Plus plenty of pitchers come up/get hot during the season to snatch (including those RP).

      Weakest at SS of course though I don't really trust Holliday to be elite any more. Who knows with Wright from season to season. If Berkman gets hot early, maybe try to trade him teh when he still has value. He was great early last year but faded late season and he is probably too old to keep for next year.

      Yeah not the strongest draft but just ride the FA pool and you should do fine. Since it is keeper, pounce on the hot young players early. You can always drop them for someone else if they go bust. Good luck.

    • End up where you drafted...9th place

    • i see it as pretty weak i like to go with 20-20 types Kinsler kemp francour A.cAb types of players more so then say a dee gordon who just steals bases pitching i good except for the closer fact which gives you a 2-3 in saves for roto you hae to be more diverse with the players you chose trade Cano for a kinsler even though he looks like he is an upgrade he doesnt steal bases and you might even be able to ask for a closer with kinsler for Cano

    • Anybody else?

    • I feel it's pretty weak overall for a 12 team league. After verlander & Wilson your SP leaves a lot to be desired and you hitting is a little better than average but doesn't jump out at you either.
