Yes, my only draft and I think I might have flubbed it. Still, I think I got enough Grey-approved value to have some chips, though obviously that's not the purpose. First pick of 12 teams, no keepers, 6x6 with holds and OBP.

Oh, and my computer shut down during picks 20 and 21 and gave me Hideki Matsui and Gavin Floyd. Could have gone worse, I guess.

Grey and the gallery, I know I need steals and average. Anything else I should be looking for to turn this thing around?

Thanks.

Looks like a nicely balanced hitting squad. Your MIs are a little wonky but you can fix them on waivers. I like your top three SPs, the other ones are a little hit or miss. You'll be able to find someone better than at least two of them, but they're okay for now. They might surprise. Your MRs are pretty eh. I think you can probably do better off waivers right now. Overall, it's a solid team though.

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 Grey. Last question and I'll leave you to your underground lair: in a holds league, is it valuable to keep MRs like League, Grabow and Rodney because they can both get holds and are the likely closers-in-waiting? Or should I keep my relievers unhedged and just aim for holds?

Just aim for Holds and great ratios.

You've got some big bats that I really like. I like the Hamilton pick too (assuming you got him for a bargain). But I think you have some questionables' in your starting rotation. I drafted Cueto in my league too, with a plan however. I'm hoping he gets off to a hot start similar to 09 and then I sell him for all hes worth before his 2nd half woes. But hes still young so you never know.

Very good thought. I did that with both Cueto and Volquez last year...not that I did it skillfully, but I did it. It was tough for me to bid up starters when they only account for 1/3 of the stats. I imagine injuries or slow starts might force me to consider the waiver wire or streaming.

Appreciate the note.
