I think once you have Jose Reyes on your team, you probably don't need another 20+ steal guy and you have two, possibly three of them. I'd agree that there's a lot of upside on this team and if they were to all pan out you'd be sitting pretty, but there's always a lot of risk here. I do like your pitching staff a lot though.

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!

Yeah - that Delmon pick was a bit dopey. I was thinking the Util spot is where you want a bit of upside, but already had more than enough of that and Nady might have been a better pick there.

Should I have perhaps gone Markakis instead of BJ?

Eh... I don't know if Markakis there instead of Upton is necessarily going to fix everything. Just Longoria, Alexei, Kemp, Upton and Votto are all upside picks, so your team is pretty risky.

Went back and looked again and I should really have taken Carlos Lee with my second pick and then maybe BJ or Aramis with my third.
Oh well. Hadn't taken Longoria in a mock before. Just wanted to see where it would lead.

And if the top 100 had come out a day earlier (or I had done this draft a day later) I would have!

The top 20's been out there for a while already. (Insert winking emoticon)

Don't be so hard on yourself; Delmon's a lock for 10 HR and 10 SB.

Felix, Cain and C. Young at 15 are sexy picks. ESPECIALLY, C. Young at 15...if only he went that late in every draft. But I'm a softy for pitching ;)
