This was a pretty good matchup, however I give Oakland the nod because of its bullpen and overall power.

I think Edinburg went with too many modern players... K-Rod, Beckett, Mussina, and even Santana didn't deserve to be drafted.

Could they be once their career is finished? Yes, but I doubt any of them makes the HOF outside of a long shot in Mussina if they retired today.

One concern I have with Oakland's team is that the defense is really bad. That is really the only concern I have other than Jeter (who is really a post-season legend, not a regular seasoner).

Sincerely, i think my lineup blows away Oakland's. It's not even close in my opinion. The pitching staff, eh, i guess you can make the argument, but i have arguably the most dominant pitcher ever as my #1, Tom Glavine, Eddie Plank and Phil Niekro afterwards. Mussina, who, when all is said and done, might get 300 wins and is a HOF'er, is my 5th starter. I have one of the most (if not the) dominant closers ever, and Wagner, Beckett, Santana and K-Rod in for middle relief. Plus the second best defensive short stop ever coming off the bench.

I have a great balance of power and hitting in my lineup. We will even be able to steal bases if we need to (a concept im not hot for). My strength is my starting pitchers. They average 350 wins and 3000 K's (roughly).

I also must admit, I am still amazed that I was able to grab who I did as my bench players.

I personally hate oaklands pitching staff...but Edinburg seemed to be just going for players...MR for Santana...no thanks...you don't draft players to play positions they've never played. So I'm going Oakland
