Somebody's gotta draft Cliff Lee, Brian Roberts, and John Danks, right? Vinko, you read Razzball, right? C'mon, man. I do like your OF. And I like Bedard and Liriano, but I wouldn't want both on the same team. Though I will say you have some solid closers.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Here's my team (Planet 10), such as it is. The need to use queue to keep the draft running when I was away from the computer at court was a definite problem.
This is the draft in order:
1 Ian Kinsler
2 Carlos Quentin
3 Brandon Webb
4 Ichiro Suzuki
5 Stephen Drew
6 Geovany Soto
7 Brad Hawpe
8 Edinson Volquez
9 Shin-Soo Choo
10 Joba Chamberlain
11 Pablo Sandoval
12 Adrian Beltre
13 Francisco Cordero
14 Jorge Posada
15 Denard Span
16 Mark Buehrle
17 Mike Gonzalez
18 Paul Konerko
19 Andrew Sonnanstine
20 Armando Galarraga
21 Scott Rolen
22 Freddy Sanchez
23 Eric Byrnes
24 Todd Wellemeyer

And by position:
C Geovany Soto C-CHC
C Jorge Posada C-NYY
1ST Pablo Sandoval 1B/3B/C-SF
2ND Ian Kinsler 2B-TEX
3RD Adrian Beltre 3B-SEA
SS Stephen Drew SS-AZ
OF Carlos Quentin OF-CHW
OF Ichiro Suzuki OF-SEA
OF Brad Hawpe OF-COL
OF Shin-Soo Choo OF-CLE
OF Denard Span OF-MIN
UTILITY Paul Konerko 1B-CHW
CI Scott Rolen 3B-TOR
MI Freddy Sanchez 2B-PIT
SP Brandon Webb SP-AZ
SP Edinson Volquez SP-CIN
SP Joba Chamberlain SP/RP-NYY
SP Mark Buehrle SP-CHW
SP Andrew Sonnanstine SP-TB
RP Francisco Cordero RP-CIN
RP Mike Gonzalez RP-ATL
P Armando Galarraga SP-DET
BENCH Eric Byrnes OF-AZ
BENCH Todd Wellemeyer SP-STL

I'm not too pleased with my 1B, CI, MI and Utility picks. But I could live with most of the rest. I'm still looking at these early mocks as a learning device to prepare me for my actual drafts.

You're pitching relying too much on Volquez and Joba while Sonnanstine and Buerhrle aren't really that good. (Though I like Buerhrle a bit more.) Instead of Ichiro or Soto, you should've grabbed a 1st baseman or corner guy. You have some bright spots (Kinsler, Beltre, Hawpe, CQ, Choo and Span), but you're holes are pretty gaping.

You're right, maybe a little more pop, but overall this is a top 3 team. Very well done. Great balance and great fliers at the right positions. With the proper in-season managing, you can win with this team. If it weren't a mock, of course.
