Judging by the picks of Wright, Ellsbury, (the great) Cliff Lee and basically everyone on your team except Pujols, I think it's safe to say that limited "reach" is not a problem for ESPN's servers :)

Looking over my team, it's not that great (Pretty sure I've had to cut Brad Hawpe's ass the last 3 years). But I think your team may set a record for worst team EVER fielded in an 8 team league.

Thanks. I needed that validation, because every year I say my team blows, and every year I end up beating you schleps.

I never ever take a pitcher as a first pick. That being said, Halladay is going to annihilate this year.

Hamilton is hit or miss. If he stays healthy he can be a serious threat, but all the drugs has made his body less resilient. Crawford's a gangster, he'll get you a million runs and steals and hit for a solid average.

Ass-dribble Cabrera has a horrible name.

Bay and Beltran both play for the Mets. While I love cheering for them, ouch. Anybody's production goes down when they play at Citi Field... but they should both net you 28-32 HRs and 100 RBIs.

Markakis is from my home town, and a solid player.

Victorino I hate with a passion, but that's because he does well.

Your first three picks are a bit disappointing, but the rest seem about right. As long as you stay active in the league you should do alright.
