Yes, I was trying to find a good city to go with Phoenix, and Phoenix stuck out (although I almost chose Green Bay or N'Awlins.)
They replaced the Dodgers, and I am doing a dream draft.

Anyways, my strategy (after editing numerous players, including Cliff Lee, Denard Span, and Andruw Jones) is to pick up Lee, Lincecum, King Felix, and CJ Wilson (also edited) in the 1st 4 rds, then Rios in the 5th. My rotation will be filled out with young guys such as Gallardo or Blackburn. Also, no salary limit to worry about (it says ------ P), so that helps.

I'll be back w/ the draft details, and I'm also adding Bellamy, Wrong, and Holt to my team.
edit: forgot to mention divisional changes:
Phoenix (formerly dodgers) to AL Central
KC to AL East
Orioles to NL East
Astros to NL West

I don't think it's possible to have two closers, or are you doing that for role-on-mini-description (the box in the upper right hand corner that shows CTRL, STAM and pitches) purposes?

i'm platooning them, in a sense.
plus, both their roles say closer.

Are you sure that's Orlando Hudson you drafted? After all, Hudson is a second baseman. Orlando Cabrera is a SS.

i had to switch him to SS because i accidentally drafted 2 2Bs, not a 2B and a SS.

Lincecum gets win, Aramis smashes two, Botts & G. Weeks released

Tim Lincecum gets the win with only 4 hits allowed in 6.1 innings. Marmol almost completes the shutout, but allows a cheap run with 2 outs in the 9th.
Alexei Ramirez, after having two HRs robbed by Bobby Abreu, comes back in the 8th to hit his 1st HR, and aramis bashed two fourbaggers (3).
Rowand and Arai (2) and Ruiz (1) also had HRs.

In other news:
Jason Botts and Great Weeks have been released by the Phoenix, and are picked up by the Twins, coincidentally Phoenix's next opponent. The pair were in AAA, and had almost no chance of making it to the big show, even for Sept. call-ups.

Phoenix win in blowout despite Felix's struggles, 3 players with 2 HRs.
Felix allows 6, but so does Jamie Moyer, and when Springer and Seay came in, it was all over (19-6).
Takahiro Arai, Aaron Rowand, and Ryan Ludwick all hit 2 homers, and Hudson, Alexei hit 1 HR.
Bierd shuts down the Twins, and Mulder lets in three (although that was for undisclosed reasons)
Hamilton and Ethier (497 ft.) hit HRs for Minnesota.

Hudson hits for cycle (and adds a double and a HR) in win
Orlando Hudson went 6-6 today with a single, 2 doubles, triple, and 2 HRs in a 21-4 win.
Also, Ludwick, Rowand, and Arai hit their 5th HRs, and Alexei hit his 3rd.
Bellamy hit his first HR of his career, and Aramis Ramirez had 3.
Litsch was punded on, but got the win through sheer determination (exhausted after 3.2 innings)
Ian Kennedy and Kevin Hart held Min. scoreless.
Lester is charged w/ loss.

umm... You might want to turn up the difficulty a little bit...

But anyway, I'm following. Dream Drafts are the best!
