When you spend more than half of your $260 budget on 4 players-Howard, Tulo, Holliday and Lincecum, you end up with no closers, and starting pitchers like Happ, Bailey, Volstadt and McDonald.

He has several high risk hitters in Reyes and Chris Young, along with a couple minor leaguers-catcher Jason Castro and third baseman Pedro Alvarez. Both could be up by June, or sooner. Castro has an outside shot of being the starter in Houston.

He also took a risk drafting Mike Jacobs, who could end up in AAA, and Jermaine Dye, who has yet to sign with any team as of this writing. Ryan Spilborgh will be the Rockies 5th outfielder barring injury to one of Seth Smith, Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler and Brad Hawpe, but he is the only right handed hitter of the bunch. Well, Fowler is a switch hitter, but hits better left-handed than right-handed.
