12 team 7x7 extra categories are ops/obp k/9 and k/bb

1B 2B 3B SS C OFx3 Util 5xSP 2xRP with 1500 IP limit

11 Evan Longoria, TB 3B - really wanted Miggy or Kemp, but I guess that
14 Ian Kinsler, Tex 2B - knew he wouldn't be around at 35, and I am a Rangers homer..
35 Joey Votto, Cin 1B
38 Jon Lester, Bos SP - Maybe a bit too early, but I believe
59 Jose Reyes, NYM SS - cant pass up that value
62 Nelson Cruz, Tex OF
83 Josh Hamilton, Tex OF - another injury question.. but could pay off
86 Cole Hamels, Phi SP
107 Clayton Kershaw, LAD SP
110 Jay Bruce, Cin OF - panic pick, like the potential though
131 Chad Billingsley, LAD SP
134 Chris Davis, Tex 1B
155 Ian Stewart, Col 2B - Kinsler Injury insurance, or possible utility if someone doesnt work out
158 Rafael Soriano, TB RP
179 Julio Borbon, Tex OF -speed backup in case reyes has too many injury problems
182 Carlos Marmol, ChC RP
203 Russell Martin, LAD C
206 Kevin Slowey, Min SP
227 Ervin Santana, LAA SP
230 Neftali Feliz, Tex RP
251 Chris Perez, Cle RP
254 Erik Bedard, Sea SP - DL stash could be worth it.. who knows
275 Matt LaPorta, Cle OF - Liriano, Marcum and Rauch all got sniped just before me so i went with upside.

Shallow-ish league as far as how many hitters we start, but the owners are all very active and do their research. I had to pull the trigger on a couple of people a bit early or they wouldnt be around when it came back to me.
I may have some average problems, and I have two pretty big injury questions.

I know Grey says not to take bench hitters, but I felt it was needed given how strong my pitching already was. Like I said, this league could really use CI and MI maybe another OF. Just feels so shallow without them.

So what do you think? On second look it's not as bad as I thought. Just felt like I was getting my players taken a 2-3 picks before me every time.

Doesn't look like a bad team, you do have a lot of risk on your hitting side though. If Davis, Hamilton, Reyes, Kinsler, Cruz and Bruce fail, you're in trouble. I do like those guys, but they all have degrees of question marks. Your pitching is stronger than your hitting, which isn't a great thing. Maybe you can move a top SP and, say, Bruce or Davis for an upgrade.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

thanks for having a look. I really like a lot of the guys, but like you said.. so much risk. I will probably try to move someone risky for a stable contributor.
