Tough Draft last night. ESPN has me projected to finish top 5 in all offensive categories but bottom 3 in most of the pitching categories which is suprising to me because I think most of my SP's are in the top 40 and I have 2 top 15 SP's.
Here is my team:

C Weiters (105)
1B Cabrera (7)
2B Cano (40)
SS Reyes (33)
3B Beckham (64)
OF J Upton (16)
OF Pence (88)
OF Garrett Jones (160)
OF Corey Hart (184)
OF Connor Jackson (232)
CI C Davis (136)
MI A Escobar (129)
UT Travis Snider (249)

SP J Santana (57)
SP J Johnson (81)
SP J Weaver (153)
SP C Zambrano (201)
SP J Cueto (225)
SP S Marcum (256)
RP F Cordero (112)
RP Fuentes (177)
RP C Perez (208)

Bench I Desmond (273)
Bench S Rodriguez (280)
Bench J Masterson (297)

Nice team name, I don't think your team really hinges on Stewart. Might hinge on Hardy, Drew, Porcello, Peralta, Dempster, Lackey and the ten other picks I'd avoid.

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.

Your team looks real solid, like the hitting you've put together and the pitching. Looks definitely like a competitive team.

In fairness, all but 6 of my picks were drafted below where you rank them (although you do have a unique habit of sometimes ranking players you don't like before ones you do). But we each have our own strategies, and mine has worked well enough in the past. I look forward to leading my rag-tag group into battle ;)

I hated every moment of this draft, as nearly every pick I was going to make was gaffled a few picks before mine. I believe pick number 158 is where the vodka took hold.

11 Ryan Howard, Phi 1B
14 Matt Holliday, StL OF
35 Mark Reynolds, Ari 3B
38 Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B
59 Carlos Quentin, CWS OF
62 Ubaldo Jimenez, Col SP
83 Ricky Nolasco, Fla SP
86 Torii Hunter, LAA OF
107 Chad Billingsley, LAD SP
110 Nate McLouth, Atl OF
131 Jose Valverde, Det RP
134 Rajai Davis, Oak OF
155 Jonathan Sanchez, SF SP
158 Rafael Furcal, LAD SS
179 Mike Napoli, LAA C
182 Mike Gonzalez, Bal RP
203 Kevin Slowey, Min SP
206 Placido Polanco, Phi 2B
227 Jon Rauch, Min RP
230 Matt LaPorta, Cle OF
251 Cameron Maybin, Fla OF
254 Aroldis Chapman, Cin SP
275 Nick Johnson, NYY 1B
278 Magglio Ordonez, Det OF
299 Marc Rzepczynski, Tor SP

Rzepczynski has been replaced by Randy Wolf. I think I taste my dinner coming up!

Yeah, gets a little wonky there towards the end. Or I guess about halfway through. Eh, tomato-tomahto. Your pitching was looking good until you got towards the bottom half. You might need a 4th or 5th starter. Sorta the same with the hitting. Looks good on the top half, then it takes some left turns and doesn't really find its way back.

Bob: Im playing the violin for ya with those "every pick I was going to make was gaffled" complaints, I thought you did as well as anyone, everyones draft got wonky towards the end as all Greys sleepers were pretty much off the board by r18 and I was left with guys like Joel Pinerio. I liked my 1st 8 picks then it started getting messed up fast!

Im low on steals and it would be nice to have more K's from the pitching but it seems the rest of the team is looking good vs Grey's 12 team roto targets.

Week one is in the books, and Robin's Jugs are out front (appropriately): http://games.espn.go.com/flb/standings?leagueId=87663

My team, Dale M, is holding at 5th thanks to some incredible pitching (esp. Halladay) mixed with an alarming dearth of RBI and steals.

The Jugs benefited from explosive weeks by Howard, Holliday, and... Mags?

The 2nd place Cubes vaulted upward thanks to hyped sleeper Heyward and underhyped sleeper Krispie, as well as Haren's typical early season heroics.

Bringing up the rear, YOU CAN R.I.P. has so far failed to get a HR from A-Rod or a Win from F-Her. Methinks that will change soon.

Good first week, all!
