I know i did some dumb picks so open to what I need to learn better, think waited on pitching to late. Thanks for any advice. This is with Masters fantasy baseball league set up.  PS - r was to classify relief pitcher and Loshe was a computer pick towards end when i went LD for a moment.

Like the hitting and the closers. SP looks a little weak for a ten teamer imo. Pretty luck longoria and tulo made it to you late 2nd and early 3rd.

Solid team really good offense. Your bullpen is solid as well. If Dickey has another Cy Young run and if Ian Kennedy can pitch like 2011 your team will be great. I predict Beckett to rebound as well i think thats a great late round pick up

Need way more speed   Speed and power outfielders 5 deep.   Cespedes. Upton. Mcutcheon. Players like that. Speed at 2b ss.   Reyes. Kipnis.   Load up on closers.    They can always be traded. Everybody wants em and nobody want to trade em and worry about the rest on the way to the title.        EZ

I disagree with "loading up on closers" and that "they can always be traded." They lose their jobs more readily than any other position in baseball. Your top notch closer can turn into waiver wire fodder in a heartbeat.

I recommend loading up on high K, low whip starting pitchers, grab one really good closer and a few closers-to-be that also have great K and whip numbers. This way, you win K's, WHIP and possibly ERA, you don't finish with 1 point and perhaps end up middle-of-the-road in saves. If there's one category you can almost ignore, and still win, it's saves.

I'd rather have guys like Kenley Jansen, David Robertson and Ernesto Frieri in my bullpen than many of the closers on the market.

I like to load up on closers. Just not taking them early. But I love to get 5-6 of them in drafts.
