I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm not sure Victorino was needed for this team. Anyway, I like this team a lot. Even if you were to have problems with a team like this, you have a lot of tradeable parts. Nicely done, Steve.

I sort of forgot about him, but then when I saw him at 78, I kind of had to take him.

You forgot Victorino? When you cut me, do I not bleed?

Well, when you have the Carlos trifecta in the OF, you kind of start looking at other positions, you know?

BTW, I could have taken Cano or Atkins in the 9th instead of Bills. Better or worse?

Atkins in that round and then I bet you could've got Billingsley then Broxton in the next rounds. Either way, it's still a strong team.

How about this one? 10-team, ESPN. Took Kinsler in the 3rd when I normally look at an OF, just to see what would happen. Lots of autopicks so a bit distorted, but still. Wainwright kinda early, but not many (ahem) No.2s left...

(1) Alex Rodriguez 3B
(20) Prince Fielder 1B
(21) Ian Kinsler 2B
(40) Carlos Quentin LF
(41) Alex Rios RF
(60) Shane Victorino CF
(61) Joey Votto 1B
(80) Chad Billingsley SP
(81) Jermaine Dye RF
(100) Stephen Drew SS
(101) Adam Wainwright SP
(120) Bobby Jenks RP
(121) Matt Cain SP
(140) J.J. Hardy SS
(141) Pat Burrell LF
(160) Chris Iannetta C
(161) Cameron Maybin CF
(180) George Sherrill RP

Solid team... I think you would struggle on average if this were an actual team, but average can be pretty fluky, so I wouldn't fault you too much there. Also, I love Young, Cain, Bills, Wainwright and Cueto, but you're putting a lot of weight on having them all together. Remember if you had them all last year, you would've been miserable. Granted, it's a new year, but, ya know, Cust kayin'.

Some more reliable production needed, yes? Any suggestions?
