Good luck with your draft.

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.

I agree that you took Chone and Pablo too early, but I also think you grabbed Manny and Kubel a bit too early too. I think your team's going to be hurting a bit on average. Then I like the Lilly and Harang picks, but Dempster, Ubaldo, Kawakami and Volstad are risky at best. You may have weeks where you feel like you don't want to start anyone. Not a great staff. Your relievers are fine. You may be a little light on speed, but not too terrible. Overall, you have a middle of the pack team that can be made better with some pitching upgrade.

Yeah I really didn't have much a clue for a mid season draft. Way harder than full season. Oh well. It was fun and now I have some work to do. Still pissed I misclicked on Chone and Pablo. Bleh.

I was away this weekend, and just saw my team. Not bad for autodraft:

1. (2) Albert Pujols
2. (23) Carlos Lee
3. (26) Nick Markakis
4. (47) Justin Verlander
5. (50) Cole Hamels
6. (71) Shane Victorino
7. (74) Félix Hernández
8. (95) James Shields
9. (98) Chipper Jones
10. (119) Bobby Abreu
11. (122) Aubrey Huff
12. (143) Roy Oswalt
13. (146) Max Scherzer
14. (167) José Valverde
15. (170) Tommy Hanson
16. (191) Orlando Hudson
17. (194) Clayton Kershaw
18. (215) Chris Iannetta
19. (218) Felipe López
20. (239) Colby Rasmus
21. (242) Cristian Guzmán
22. (263) Hideki Matsui
23. (266) Kevin Kouzmanoff
24. (287) Mike MacDougal
25. (290) Mark Teahen

Lots of starting pitching, few closers, maybe short on power, punted middle infielders, but better than I expected and probably not too much different than what I would have done live.

Yeah, not bad at all for autodrafting. From about 240 on, it looks a little dicey, but manageable that's for sure.

So here is my team. I don't think I took players at the "right time" at all in this draft, but I had a pretty clear goal at the outset of what type of players I was looking for and how I wanted to construct my team.

Hitting wise, I went with 1-2-3 hitters with good average and steal potential, in hopes of taking firm grip of R, AVG, SB. I lucked into some nice HR and RBI numbers as well, a dozen 30+HR 100+RBI guys should spare me embarrassment in those categories. Dye was a mistake pick, but fortunately I had the serpentine back-to-back pick, so I was able to grab Votto (my intended pick) immediately after.

Pitching wise is where I got creative. I went closer heavy (ok, full on bonkers), with 7.5 closers (Soriano being the .5), guaranteeing SVs, and giving me a statistical probability of being in great shape for ERA and WHIP. I took a handful of decent in real life, but totally boring in fantasy life SP at the tail end of the draft to (hopefully) keep me out of the basement in W and Ks, but I'll be in fine shape for the innings limit, and can stream to make up ground there.

Overall draft strategy was as follows: Go with the best hitters available (get a good core 9) until all the $12 salads were off the board, load up on donkey corns, grab boring starters with wins and ERAs under 4, take a SS as late as possible.

It should be a fun half season.

The Full Banana
1. (12) Chase Utley
2. (13) Carl Crawford
3. (36) Jacoby Ellsbury
4. (37) Mark Reynolds
5. (60) Nelson Cruz
6. (61) Víctor Martínez
7. (84) Jermaine Dye
8. (85) Joey Votto
9. (108) Aaron Hill
10. (109) Heath Bell
11. (132) Francisco Cordero
12. (133) Bobby Jenks
13. (156) George Sherrill
14. (157) Joakim Soria
15. (180) Chad Qualls
16. (181) Matt Capps
17. (204) Scott Hairston
18. (205) Wandy Rodríguez
19. (228) Joe Saunders
20. (229) Mark Buehrle
21. (252) Zach Duke
22. (253) Jhonny Peralta
23. (276) Rafael Soriano
24. (277) Nick Johnson
25. (300) Jake Fox*

*swapped for Rolen immediately after the draft ended.

Wow, no one still believes in Wandy, huh? 205 is insane. Saunders and Buehrle are pretty bleh, but you probably know that already. I like your hitting a lot, but you obviously took a huge gamble on no starters. I think overall you should be competitive with some decent moves for starters, you'll definitely have the closers to trade to upgrade there if you choose so. Though others may feel like since you have so many closers that they're all fighting for 2nd anyway and may not want to trade with you.

1. (4) Miguel Cabrera
2. (21) B.J. Upton
3. (28) Matt Kemp
4. (45) Chad Billingsley
5. (52) Francisco Rodríguez
6. (69) Ben Zobrist
7. (76) Chris Carpenter
8. (93) Adam Wainwright
9. (100) Russell Branyan
10. (117) Jason Bartlett
11. (124) Ryan Franklin
12. (141) Derrek Lee
13. (148) Luke Scott
14. (165) Frank Francisco
15. (172) Miguel Tejada
16. (189) Gil Meche
17. (196) Michael Cuddyer
18. (213) Kevin Millwood
