    • 5 ; due to lots of injury risks: Rolen, Soriano, Johan, Blaylock; even Sizemore and Peavy were hurting last year.

    • How many teams in this league?

    • I give you a score of 7.5

    • i jumped alittle to early on peavy, but i still think hanley, kinsler, grady, Yohan,c.c., and martinez will have knock out seasons, i rate my team an 8.

    • A "7" team - could either be a "5" or a "9" based primarily on how the OFs perform.

      STRONG PLAYERS

    • Johan's best days are behind him and he's an injury risk. Peavy scares me a little moving from Petco park to Comiskey- depending on how early you took him he could be a risky pick.

      Sizemore will bounce back- hes still young and too talented to let last year carry over.

    • SP & RP are really good. Bench Rolen & maybe Huff to. Look to trade Ramiriz get younger there. Good luck!

    • you made great choices by getting han-ram, v-mart, & sizemore as your top 3 position players. but with the exception of grady sizemore your outfield is quite a mess. same thing for your corner spots. you would've been better off getting maybe kendry morales or billy butler @ 1st base, & ryan zimmerman or chone figgins @ 3rd base, & justin upton or shin-soo choo in the outfield. also i would've waited way later in my draft to draft a closer, since thats the most unpredictable position. by drafting two ace closers, you ruined your chances of getting better starting position players, like the guys i mentioned above, & more quality starting pitching, like ubaldo jimenez or josh johnson. & you have a pretty weak bench too. why not get someone like maybe asdrubal cabrera or erick aybar as a backup infielder instead of declining players adrian beltre & hank blalock? & instead of jake peavy, who's an unsure one, why not draft maybe brett anderson or jorge de la rosa? i'll have to give your team a 3/10

    • Terrible. I give it a 1. Your first and 3rd are just awful. Your outfielders are all huge question marks. You are likely to finish dead last with that mess.

    • A lot of aging players in your mock. In general, the older they are, the more injuries they tend to have, so I like to lean more toward the younger up and coming players.
