We had an in-person draft and there were 3 or 4 of the guys who were new to fantasy baseball and one guy drafted over the phone as best he could. Some of these guys made abolsutely horrible picks, so needless to say that the few of us who knew what we were doing drafted strong teams. I know I'm low on steals without having Stubbs in my lineup, but think I'm pretty decent everywhere else.
Your rotation is strong enough, but you're not going to get much in the way of saves with just Putz and Bell.
I don't know how much Napoli is going to play over Yorvit Torrealba.
McCutchen will add some speed to your lineup and you certainly have enough power with Gonzalez and Braun.
Other than that, its not bad at all

Putz and Bell will provide me with enough saves to be competitive. We play with 6 generic P spots, and most guys are only carrying 1 closer. There are only 4 or 5 of us (including me) who are going with 2 closers.
And yeah...I need to think about doing something about Napoli too. Texas' lineup is a log jam. Between him, Mike Young, Moreland and Torrealba, there arent enough ABs at C/1B/DH to go around. He'll play, but not full time.
From a Reds fan, I don't know that Stubbs would help you out all that much in steals. He has blazing speed but can not bunt and strikes out too much. I have not looked at it but I can not believe that his on base is very good. He does have a lot of potential if he gets his bat right and puts the ball in play more.

Well, Stubbs had 30 steals last year, and a .328 OBP and a .442 SLG. Not bad numbers, but not horrible either.
I got him in the 18th round, so it's not like I'm banking on him like i would a early round pick.
