      • My team is alot better, brah... I don't even like this one that much, I had to take Davis early b/c I got on the wrong side of a run on 1B:

        C Posada
        1B Chris Davis
        2B Ian Kinsler
        3B A Ramirez
        SS S Drew
        OF Ryan Braun
        OF Carlos Lee
        OF Shane Victorino
        Ut Lastings Milledge

        BN Lowrie
        BN Jeff Francoeur

        SP Lackey
        SP Shields
        SP Vazquez
        SP Danks
        SP Cueto

        RP Street
        RP Qualls
        RP Francisco
        RP Corpas

        BN Smoltz
        BN Tony Pena

        Notice the hand-cuffed Mid relievers on street and qualls...


    • I think this is the typical on-draft-day-my-team-should-be-awesome type team. Destined for the middle.

      Considering your pitching staff (SP), your offense should be deeper than it is. Btw, I hate, (HATE) your SP. Burnett'll pitch 22 games if he's lucky. Baker's getting knocked around this spring and is still unproven, Dempster doesn't have great peripherals, Maine got lit up last year at times and may not be healthy.

      You have no reliable bench, as sandoval and hafner will be voltaile commodities this season (granted for completely different reasons). you're starting snider, which is another risk, but that's not the part i have a problem with. The part I have a problem with is you don't have a backup for damon or ludwick. You have no depth on either end of your team, offense or pitching. And you're either old or unproven at 1B... what's this team's strength exactly? Power? Please tell me this is a 12-team league. Is it?

      Your draft probably went like this, right?

      And by taking AJ as your ace, you probably passed on SP like... a Shields and maybe even Lackey, no? Unless you took Delgado or Ludwick in the 6th and your first SP in the 7th... either way, the Burnett pick dooms this team considering your lack of depth... everywhere really.
