Alright, here's my results...keepers in bold...

C-Salvador Perez ($6)
1B-Paul Goldschmidt (7)
2B-Dustin Pedroia ($29)
3B-Mike Moustakas ($8)
SS-Erick Aybar ($2)
IF-Allen Craig ($6)
OF-Jay Bruce ($22)
OF-Desmond Jennings ($7)
OF-Shane Victorino ($7)
OF-Brett Gardner ($5)
UTIL-Eric Hosmer ($12)

P-Clayton Kershaw ($24)
P-Yu Darvish ($24)
P-Johnny Cueto ($6)
P-Matt Moore ($7)
P-Jarrod Parker ($6)
P-Brett Anderson($6)
P-Alex Cobb ($8)
P-Anibal Sanchez ($11)
P-Greg Holland ($10)

Bench-Domonic Brown ($8)
Bench-Rickie Weeks ($3)
Bench-Alcides Escobar ($1)
Bench-Neil Walker ($1)

$34 left over! Ugh. I ran out of spots, really. I nominated both Escobar and Walker thinking someone else would bid on them (it was still early in the draft and people had bench spots to fill), and no one did. I'm so pissed off at myself for leaving so much money on the table.

My initial impression of my team is I should have pretty damn good pitching, and I should win steals every week. I'm lacking power something awful though.

Also, Tim Hudson, somehow everyone forgot about him and he didn't get drafted. Should I pick him up?

I'm also going to pick up Jedd Gyorko....

If I'm picking up those two, which two guys should I drop? It's gotta be between Aybar, Weeks, Escobar, and Walker...

Not at all. You could swap a guy like cliff for a decent bat. Davis isn't that great.

Would
longoria/j.shield or Rizzo/I.Kennedy
For
Lee/b.hamilton

Be better?

Also got offered laRoche and Hanson or Lee by that last guy again..but still trying to ripoff the new guy I think. Lol

Good lord, no. Do not do that last trade.

I assume B. Hamilton is Billy? If so, yes I would do either of those first 2 trades, but preferably the Longoria one, even though I'm not big on Shields this season. Billy Hamilton will have virtually no value this year.

C: Buster Posey
1B: Edwin Encarnacion, Chris Davis
2B: Brandon Phillips
3B: David Freese, Kyle Seager
SS: Elvis Andrus
OF: Andrew McCutchen, Giancarlo Stanton, Alex Gordon, Norichika Aoki, Mike Morse, Ben Revere, Josh Reddick

SP: Adam Wainright, Zack Greinke, Roy Halladay, Brett Anderson, Jeremy Hellickson, Mike Minor, Tommy Milone, AJ Griffin, Jason Hammel
RP: Jim Johnson, Aroldis Chapman

I think most people would say yes, but I wouldn't. I really like Harvey and feel like he is being undervalued this year.

That's why I haven't done it yet. Really like Harvey and the kid who wants him is a huge mets fans. Figure I can see how Harvey does to start the season and always make the trade after because he loves him regardless.

Harvey actually went for like $25 in my auction league. I was specifically targeting him but people kept bidding. I don't know how he didn't get kept in the first place, really.

Of course, I ended with $34 extra dollars, so fuck me for not bidding $26

So heres my team: (hate how its such a deep league with large benches)

C: V-Mart
1B: Votto, Alonso
2B: Pedroia
IF: Utley
SS: Zobrist, Escobar
OF: Stanton, Heyward, Gordon, Willingham, De Aza, Aoki, Eaton

P: Wainwright, Latos, Kuroda, Harvey, Bailey, Shelby Miller, Estrada, Cobb, and Milone
RP: Addison Reed, Grilli

Thinking about potentially trading Pedroia/Zobrist for another bat unless you guys think i'll be good power wise

Went the young, upside route for pitching.

Any advice?

10 teams, I went real late with my first pitcher. I usually do that, though

Hitting categories: HR, RBI, R, SB, and OBP
Pitching: K, QS, SVHD, WHIP, ERA

I like it. Your hitting is stacked and if one of those pitchers doesn't pan out I'd definitely try to flip an infielder for an SP. You have a lot of high upside guys though which is good.

Thanks maine. I thought the hitting was good and if necessary I can always trade Pedroia for some power and flip Utley or Zobrist in at 2nd base. Pretty much feel the same for pitching.
