Would you keep a pitcher not named J Santana or Peavy?

I honestly think it would depend on the team, but I would lean towards no as a general statement

It would depend, of course, on what your bats are like, but assuming they're not putrid, I'd consider Webb, with the possibility of a few other names sneaking into the fray by the Fall.

In general, yah. Agree with H0rt on Webb. Other pitchers that could make the list... King Felix, Hamels, Haren, and maybe Carlos Zambrano.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I'm in a 5man keeper (10 team roto)

Last year it was agreed upon that Holds would be replaced w/ K/BB and pretty much every team kept at least 1 pitcher.

Verlander, Beckett, Lackey, Santana, Halladay, Bedard, Kazmir, Felix and Peavy and Webb were all kept. On draft day I'd say the best available on the boards was Hamels. Looking at the list, I'm actually the only one that didn't keep a Pitcher.

I don't agree that many of these players should of been kept, but I would hold off on submitting your keeper list to see if there is going to be anything decent on the boards for you come draft time next year.

I guess I'm just asking strategy wise. Do you think it is easier to make trades to get pitching or to get bats?

Next year I'm going to hold off til the last possible moment before I submit my list just to see what everyone else is doing. I think you need to follow the trend of your league.... On draft day I had the 9th pick (59) and got hamels. The 10-11 guy had Verlander on his roster, and basically got totally screwed by me each round as I knew he was hot on pitching. Right now he's 10s across the boards in every O cat, and 1's and 2's in Pitching.

I guess the point Im trying to make, if you don't follow the trend you can find yourself spending more money for scarce resources on draft day... I think there a few 4th/5th position keepers that could be worthly of being kept come the end of the year.

It depends on how much your league values pitching. I'm in a 6 player keeper where I kept Felix Hernandez but the best starters available to draft were Dan Haren, Roy Oswalt, and Roy Halladay so it made more sense. If legitimate aces like Cole Hamels are available to draft, I wouldn't bother keeping a starter either.

Yes, I'd keep one named Webb every day of the week and twice on Sundays. After that, it would depend upon your team,. but if you're really rebuilding I might consider keeping King Felix or Tim Lincecum, and just trying to build around young pitching.
