16 team H2H 8x8
H, R, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG, SLG
W, QS, K, ERA, WHIP, SV, HLD, K/BB
No bench spots, all spots must be filled

C - Matt Wieters (5.75)
C - John Buck (21.331)
1B - Prince Fielder (1.11)
2B - Jose Altuve (6.86)
3B - Jose Arenado (13.203)
SS - Ben Zobrist (4.54)
CI - Paul Goldschmidt (3.43)
MI - Josh Rutledge (11.171)
LF - Carl Crawford (7.107)
CF - Ben Revere (12.182)
RF - Justin Upton (2.22)
OF - Nick Swisher (8.118)
OF - Michael Morse (9.139)
Util - Lance Berkman (10.150)

SP - Jonathon Niese (14.214)
SP - Hyun-Jin Ryu (15.235)
SP - Kyle Kendrick (18.278)
SP - Bud Norris (19.299)
SP - Wily Peralta (20.310)
RP - Hisashi Iwakuma (16.246)
RP - Andrew Cashner (17.267)
RP - Joel Peralta (22.342)
RP - Antonio Bastardo (23.363)

So obviously I held off quite a while before drafting pitchers. I was definitely surprised to see Niese last as long as he did, so I'm actually not too upset to call him my ace as of right now. With the staff I did draft, I feel that there's no stars, but it can definitely be formidable as the risk isn't very high. Also, I'm confident enough to find saves during the year if need be.

Anyways, thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks.

I think you really should have grabbed more pitching. Sure hitting is more reliable etc.. but pitching is half your categories and that is way to long to wait for an SP even if you got Niese late. I wouldn't want him as my number 1...

hitting looks solid...

For the league size, I think your offense looks stacked. Could have some value picks on your pitching staff too. You'll have to be on the lookout for another starter most likely through trade, but overall pretty damn good.
