After you passed, I wanted Kersh to fall to me at #6 so badly.

Strong team. Could probably upgrade Belt at 1B, only visible weakness. Infield trio of Wong, Donaldson, and Correa is sick. Not sure how you got both of the latter players. Even in a 10-team league, Correa should not fall to R2. Walker is surplus, good offensive player, if you feel like shopping him in a package. I would try to deal Cain, seriously do not believe he will duplicate his 2015 numbers. Top-50 pick is kinda high for my taste on Cain, even though I like him as a ballplayer fantasy aside. Pillar can fill in seamlessly if you package Cain to upgrade 1B.
Short term probably Sanchez. Shoulder inflammation never makes me happy, but McCullers should be in Houston's rotation by late-April. Long term I like Gausman the most by far. Plus velocity, there's no reason he can't win 12 games as Baltimore's #5 starter, even though Camden is a hitter's park and the AL East is no fun for pitchers. Heaney would be my second favorite choice long term, in the event McCullers' absence extends into May.

Team 1: Down on Freeman this year but he's technically your second-best 1B after Abreu anyway. Marte and Buxton have tremendous upside, Buxton should be the AL ROY. Mesoraco is a potential top-5 C for me, I'm drafting him as often as possible in all my leagues. Can't say enough about Peralta, one of the most underrated and under-drafted OF in fantasy. I have no idea why he's being drafted outside the top 100 to be honest.
Maeda is a NL ROY candidate. Iglesias and Rodon are both breakout guys with high-level K stuff. Iglesias is being asked to be Cincy's ace this year with no more Cueto and Bailey injured.
Team 2: Nice stash with Berrios. Again he's right up there with Glasnow and Snell behind Giolito and Urias. OF trio is nasty with Betts, Gomez, Marte. I'd offer caution regarding Marte, even though I protected him in our NT Keeper. Think he might disappoint in '16 and now we have to worry about the quad tightening up. Wouldn't be completely surprised if Polanco outperformed Marte in Pittsburgh's outfield.
Carrasco is my AL Cy Young pick this year, no Cleveland homer. Indians' rotation as a whole will be dirty top to bottom if Bauer can get his control/command together. Quintana has been unlucky with wins. Many project he could secure 15 Ws in 2016.

See you got both Semien and Holt. Semien is a deep-value sleeper and Holt has insane position eligibility. Rusney Castillo's loss is Holt's ultimate gain.

Knew you were going that direction once the aces flew off the board. Thought about blocking you for E-Rod (again) and Glasnow (my NL ROY).

Really like Odor, Pillar, and Kang. Kang is going to make the Pirates' hot corner his own once he returns in mid-to-late April. No reason he can't pop 20+ HR this season. Pillar will do work atop Toronto's powerful lineup, swiped 25 bags and has a little bit of pop cranking 12 homers in '15. Odor really has a chance to sneak into the top 5 at his position for fantasy. Texas is an extremely sneaky team in their division as well as the entire AL.
Domingo Santana is a major sleeper. Started Spring very hot at the dish. Key piece in the Carlos Gomez trade going from Houston to Milwaukee. Immense raw power but strikes out a lot. Feast or famine essentially.
