I drafted my big 12 TEAM standard 5x5 roto $$$ league last night. I wanna post my team and get some thoughts on it. See if you guys see any weeknesses that I need to address.
C - Montero (I'd be punting for Clement all year, but in round 15 I couldn't resist).
1st - Pujuls (1st overall)
2nd - Beckham (R11 over J.Lopez & Stewart)
SS - Reyes (last pick of the 4th - huge value IMO)
3rd - Zimmerman (2nd)
MI - S.Drew (14th)
CI - B.Butler (1st pick of the 6th, a reach)
OF - Grandy (5th)
OF - Dunn (7th)
OF - J.Bruce (9th over Pence and Quentin...may regret that one, but I really like him this yr)
OF - Carlo Gonzalez (12th)
UTIL - T.Snider (17th)
UTIL - C.Davis (18th)
B - Gordon (21st), Stubbs (22nd), LaPorta (28)
SP - F-Her (3rd)
SP - Hamels (8th)
RP - Wagner (13th)
RP - Jenks (16th)
P - Garza (10th - mancrush)
P - M.Gonzalez (23rd)
P - Lindstrom (27th)
P - Dotel (26th)
B - Buchholz (19th), Liriano (20th), Hughes (24th), C.Perez (26th) & Matusz (FA picking with Reyes to the DL)
I'm a tad worried about AVG with Dunn, Bruce, Davis and Grandy. But I'm hoping that Pujols and B.Butler can counteract that. Little shy on speed if Stubbs doesn't run wild and/or Reyes doesn't return to form.
Also a little worried about my SPing. A lot of young guys and a lot of AL pitchers. Really glad I got F-Her instead of the typical aces I was targetting (Lester...)
I'm currently trying to trade my closer depth (6!) to get some MI depth.
Sorry this isn't that profound, but I agree with what you said. AVG could be an issue and the back end of your starters. Overall, I do think your team is solid. I wouldn't be too worried right now about either issue.
