10 team league, 5x5 roto, 25 rounds

1st round: Jimmy Rollins - SS - PHL (just like him more than Reyes because he hits in Phl. & he can still swipe the bases.)

2nd round: Josh Hamilton - OF - TEX (best outfielder at this point & he hits in Tex.)

3rd round: Prince Fielder - 1B - MIL (power hitting corner infielder)

4th round: Alex Rios - OF - TOR (I'm anticipating a solid year)

5th round: BJ Upton - OF - TB (steals & runs scored, I like is upside)

6th round: Chris Davis - 3B - TEX (I look for a monster year)

7th round: Alexei Ramirez - 2B - CHW (best middle infielder at this point)

8th round: Scott Kazmir - SP - TB (should rack up some wins & strikeouts)

9th round: Brian Fuentes - RP - ANA (underated relief pitcher & will close for a damn good team)

10th round: Ryan Ludwick - OF - STL (He won't drop off too much from his insane year last season)

11th round: Adam Wainwright - SP - STL (I'm on the fence with this guy, but he was the highest ranked SP at this point)

12th round: Matt Garza - SP - TB (should be solid)

13th round: Carlos Zambrano - SP - CHC (wins & strikeouts)

14th round: Garrett Atkins - 1B/3B - COL (this guy has stucj it up my ass in fantasy before, now I'm glad I own him)

15th round: Mark DeRosa - Util - CLV (solid utility man & underated)

16th round: Josh Johnson - SP - FLA (I'm looking for a strong bounce back year from JJ)

17th round: Lastings Milledge - OF - WSH (not bad for a 5th outfielder)

18th round: Gil Meche - SP - KC (time for Gil to take it to the next level & he is capable)

19th round: Bengie Molina - C - SF (solid catcher for the 19th round)

20th round: Mike Gonzalez - RP - ATL (taking a chance here, but he should close if healthy)

21st round: Edwin Encarnacion - Bench - CIN (time for him to be consistant)

22nd round: Chris Volstad - SP - FLA (young up & coming stud)

23rd round: Kelly Johnson - 2B/SS - ATL (not a bad middle infielder)

24th round: Nelson Cruz - Bench - TEX (monster potential)

25th round: Jair Jurrjens - Bench - ATL (solid year last season)

Pretty happy with this draft. I think I got all of the offensive categories pretty well covered. My pitching is good, but not great. I may struggle in the saves department if Fuentes gets hurt or proves to be ineffective. Hopefully my other closer is healthy & gets plenty opportunities to close.

Coming from you, that is an honor!

Having said that, the main reason I did that draft was to prepare for the beat the geeks draft if I should be so lucky to be in it. I just hope if I am invited that you can hold the draft on a weekend or any weeknight as long as it starts no earlier than 8:30pm my time(central time). If you can make that possible, count me in!

no worries... you're in... we're still taking entries for multiple leagues... i think we have about 15-20 requests right now, which would make 2 10-12 team leagues, hopefully...

more details in the next few dsays, but i will absolutely consider your time request and meet it...
