Your IF is definitely weak...I'd prob start Walker over Johnson but that's only cause I had Walker last year and this year so I'm biased haha

I really couldn't make a fair judgement on your pitching just because i'm very anti-closer. I've yet to draft a closer, I just pick one or two up a few weeks into the season off the waiver wire.

Your OF is real strong, especially if Heyward bounces back. Maybe dangle one of them for Lawrie and Gordon? I'd be nervous about doing that though just because Lawrie is unproven, even if his upside is so high

Yeah thanks. I tried to stack up on closers this year because last year they held a lot of value- I traded Walden and a scrub OF for Brian Wilson and Stanton at one point last year.

Thoughts on Lorenzo Cain, guys?

I like him a good bit as a late round pick. It looks like he might be hitting 2nd in that lineup and has decent pop and good speed and the Royals run a ton. I could see a .270 AVG, 10 HR and 30+ steals. If he does hit 2nd, the RBI and R will be nice too

10 team AP Keeper team. I had first pick and my keepers are listed with a K (before you make fun of my keepers: 1. I kept Carpenter before I knew he was out for a bit; 2. if you think that's weak, you should have seen the guys I didn't keep; 3. this is like the 6th year and I've finished in last place the last three years (and missed the last two drafts) so this is the first time I actually got to draft in awhile...

Ah, sorry. Doing a podcast interview at 7:15. I'd say yes anyway, but I don't want to have to rush it if it's going well.

Any way a guy accepts Heyward and Chris Perez for Brett Lawrie? He has weak depth on Offense and only one true closer. I have five closers (Axford, Motte, Santos, League, Perez) and would prefer to keep Ax and Motte but wouldn't mind trading the others. I'd be open to moving Heyward, a closer, and like, for example, Neil Walker for Lawrie and maybe a scrub of his. His only other 3B is Moustakas.

All you can do is send the offer. I wouldn't consider that myself, but it's so hard to say based on people's individual preferences and team needs whether or not they'd do a certain trade or not.

I would I just hate to get the reputation within a league of sending "bad offers". Once you get to be known as "that guy" you basically get a premium set that you have to pay essentially.

True. I don't think it's so terribly lopsided so as to do that, but like I said, I would immediately decline it if I were on the Lawrie side

You could have done a lot worse. Boesch and Rasmus are really nice sleepers. Your SPs are pretty bad, though. Is there a reason you took four closers?
