We just completed the draft of our 2nd year keeper. It's a CBS H2H points league. We can only keep only players drafted after round 8 and we need to give the next higher round pick in order to keep them.
I picked 15 out of 16.
C - Brian McCann(7)
1B - Albert Pujols(2)
2B - Howie Kendrick(K-11)
3B - Chone Figgins(5)
SS - Julio Lugo(12)
OF - Matt Holliday(1), Alfonso Soriano(3), Delmon Young(K-8)
Util - Chris B. Young(K-10)
BN - Conor Jackson(18)
SP - John Smoltz(4), Adam Wainwright(K-9), Greg Maddux(14), Ian Snell(K-15), Mark Prior(16), Dave Bush(17), Kyle Kendrick(19), Tim Lincecum(K-21), Ian Kennedy(K-22)
RP - Mariano Rivera(6), Jose Valverde(K-13), Cla Meredith(20)
I marked the keepers with an additional K-.

Thanks to the scoring (SP make about he same points per year as hitters) SP went like crazy early on. In the first 2 rounds 13 SP were drafted. And another 10 in the next 2 rounds.
That's why I reached a bit for Smoltz to have at least one ace.
I also picked Meredith with my last pick since we need to start 3 RP.
There isn't much choice of SP and RP left on the WW.
But if you know somebody who might be there in 16 teamer I can take a look and maybe pick him up after I stashed Prior on DL.
What do you think of the team. Any big holes?
Remember it's H2H points that's why single cat performers like speedsters aren't as important as all-around guys.
