Drafting Second

I picked second in a mock draft last night, and stepped outside of my comfort zone to pick some players I don't normally take.  Here are the league results; here's my team (I was Barry'd treasure):

C - Victor Martinez (8)
C - Mike Napoli (13)
1B - Chris Davis (5)
2B - Alexei Ramirez (4)
SS - Derek Jeter (9)
3B - Alex Rodriguez (1)
MI - Rickie Weeks (20)
CI - Adrian Beltre (19)
OF - B.J. Upton (2)
OF - Bobby Abreu (7)
OF - Hunter Pence (10)
OF - Nelson Cruz (14)
OF - Ryan Spilborghs (23)
DH - David Ortiz (6)
SP - Johan Santana (3)
SP - Yovani Gallardo (11)
SP - Derek Lowe (15)
SP - Brett Myers (16)
SP - Aaron Harang (17)
SP - Gil Meche (22)
RP - Jose Valverde (12)
RP - Heath Bell (18)
RP - Joel Hanrahan (21)

This is probably my favorite team yet; I projected it for a .283 AVG, 341 HR, 1223 RBI, 1231 R, 189 SB, a 3.69 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 1229 K, 89 W, and at least 90 SV.  Mock Draft Central projected my team to come in second place for the most part, calling for AVG, RBI, and SV deficiencies.

I see four guys under .280 and no .300 hitters, but still a strong overall AVG.  I have plenty of guys I think can crack 90 RBI, and anytime I have three decent closers I expect something close to 90 SV.
