6 bench spots.


I am 4 picks away from mine then I dont have a pick for the next 4 rounds. I have traded them away. What would be the best way to go with that pick. Clemens is there Cordero, Griffey, Loretta, Ensberg, Hinske, Mantei, Kolb, Benitez, Kearns, Batista, Padilla. Those are my best options. Thanks in advance

Your offense is fine, and there's really no reason to stockpile good players to sit on the bench. IMO, you've either got to grab Benitez or Padilla, and I'd lean towards Padilla. There'll still be saves when you pick again in 4 rounds, but a good starter is harder to come by this late.

Clemens is probably the safe play here, but what if the rumors about him pitching mostly home games are true, Minute made is a very hitter friendly park.

I would be tempted to pick Hinskie who I like better then Boone at 3b.

You are also pretty loaded at OF so depending how open to trading your league mates are, and if anyone in your league had a stud pitcher(be it starter or elite closer) but was hurting in OF. In this case I would consider picking up kearns, and trading one of your starting OF, for a top pitcher. As your Offense is very strong right now, and could handle the drop off.
