My impressions are generally positive.  This looks like a much better balanced roster than the one drafted by Derek McCarty in the NL LABR:

  • Matt Wieters for $13 will turn out to be a bargain if Wieters plays 2/3s of the season.
  • Derek Jeter at $24?
  • Chris Shelton, Jerry Owens and Chris Getz are excellent low salary/high reward players.  As is Gary Sheffield at $4?!?!?!?
  • He has the solid foundation of pitching to take gambles on undrafted SP and emergin closers.  As a matter of fact, he has the freedom to go all Phil Coke on his pitching staff.
