1: Hanley, dur
2, 3: Confound you, Strangelove! I already stocked up on tofu burgers. Well, Holliday will do I suppose. Aramis as planned
4, 5: CI disappearing like Orioles rotation candidates. Gonzo. A single tear fell when Rios didn't quite make it. Ellsbury
6, 7: See I get what you're saying, my own draft list, but I just dislike Josh Beckett so screw him. Next on list: Soto. Lidge.
8, 9: You should probably have been drafted by now, Pena. And wow where did all the pitchers go? Umm, Gallardo.
10, 11: Wang, Joba. pitcherpitcherpitcherpitcherpitcher
12, 13: CoJack, Lopez. I'm having to take my usual late value batter picks like 3 rounds early this draft
14, 15: Francisco, Qualls: SAGNOF only if you have a rotation to speak of
16, 17: Ziegler. OK all done with that. Now, OF still too thin - choo choo
18, 19: Lewis, Jurrjens. Filling holes, and pretty glad last round's bet that Jarjar would fall paid off
20, 21: Guzman, Volstad: Holy crap every one of these players is awful. My list is now useless. Uh, you there, and you over there
22, 23: Kouzmanoff. Probably the best one left for that empty UTIL. Winn - gross. But I had to do it.
24, 25: Yunel: Oh cool I guess I'll platoon MI or something. Thornton - umm, anybody want to trade for a pitcher?

You seemed to really fade in the 2nd half, maybe it was the time difference. The front half of your team looks really solid though. Love your outfield. Solid fliers up the middle. Tex and Votto -- nice. You definitely need a decent amount of steals from Maybin. Not a huge fan of Atkins, but at 82, that's good value. Peavy, Wainwright and Jobacum are a solid front three. 1 and 3/4 closers (Downs, Sherrill, Jenks) is a good base. So even with some questionable end calls, I still really like your team. Nice, Steve. Now take a nap.

Hanley is like that rug in The Big Lebowski, it just really ties everything together. (I think of this with Reyes too, but not Wright or Pujols as much.) Unfortunately, I don't think you really solidified the rest of your offense like you could have. Not sure about your outfield in particular. You have Hanley then you grab four guys that may not hit 20 HRs a piece. You need Soto and Holliday to make up some slack there and you have a lot of pressure on your 1st, 3rd and Corner guys. Your pitching staff is very young and risky. Could work out for you, but I think you're going to wish you had a more solid foundation. Volstad - blech. Winn? You have three Winns already in your outfield.

I really like your pitching staff and I really like your late round fliers. Ortiz totally jams up your offense and now you have no way of playing hot hands. I think you have a good balance of power and speed with your hitters. Your OF is probably one guy too many on the high risk factor and overall you may have problems with average. Not a bad team though.

@bsa: was going to do it later, but you could just post the league link as it's viewable to everyone.

On my team, not sure what happened in the second half. Scooped a couple of times, couple of mis-steps etc. Still, have a few guys who I will absolutely not mind dropping when something better comes along.

How many starters do y'all go with? Five or six?
