16 team H2H league, keep all but 3, OPS and Holds added

My roster:
Batters
C - Yorvit Torrealba (Col - C)
1B - Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
2B - Orlando Hudson (Ari - 2B)
3B - Mark Teahen (KC - 1B,3B,RF)
SS - Edgar Renteria (Atl - SS)
LF - Matt Holliday (Col - LF)
CF - Joey Gathright (KC - LF,CF)
RF - Andre Ethier (LAD - LF,RF)
Util - Jarrod Saltalamacchia (Tex - C,1B)
Util - Pedro Feliz (SF - 3B)
BN - Randy Winn (SF - LF,CF,RF)
BN - Willie Harris (Atl - LF,CF)
BN - Fred Lewis (SF - LF,RF)
DL - Rocco Baldelli (TB - CF) DL

Pitchers
SP - Kevin Slowey (Tex - SP)
SP - Johan Santana (Min - SP)
RP - J.J. Putz (Sea - RP)
RP - Cla Meredith (SD - RP)
P - Justin Speier (LAA - RP)
P - Fernando Rodney (Det - RP)
P - George Sherrill (Sea - RP)
P - David Riske (KC - RP)
BN - Chuck James (Atl - SP,RP)
BN - John Maine (NYM - SP)
BN - John Smoltz (Atl - SP)
BN - Kenny Rogers (Det - SP)

Farm Club:
1 - Ried Brignac (SS)
2 - Jeff Niemann (SP)
3 - Charlton Jimerson (OF)
4 - Sean Gallagher(SP)
5 - Daniel Bard(SP)

So far, the draft has gone as follows:
1 Michael Moustakas (SS)
2 David Price (SP)
3 Jason A Heyward (OF)
4 Matt Wieters (C)
5 Rick Porcello (P)
6 Josh Vitters (3B)
7 Gorkys Hernandez (OF)
8 Kusoke Fukudome (OF)
9 Philippe Aumont (SP)

I am looking at my roster and I see three main weaknesses: Outfield, Closer, and overall team depth. With that said, I am looking at a few candidates, such as Casey Weathers, Jarrod Parker, Matt LaPorta, Ross Detwiler, James McDonald, etc.

Note that anyone from the 2007 MLB Draft class that is not listed in the above 9 picks is eligible in this draft.

PLEASE leave your opinion and I will do my best to help if you leave a link.

I agree Joe. Looking at your team needs too
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

I'd want LaPorta or Weathers. Given that holds count, I think Weathers could be a guy that starts getting some holds as early as this year. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him start the year in Double-A and move up to the bigs with a good half season.

LaPorta will be up sooner but Parker has #1 upside.

I hope I have to make that choice at #10 in my upcoming draft ;-D
