Hey gang. It's the 5th round (48th overall pick) in a 4 man 10 team keeper league.

My Team:

Guardado

Players On the board:
Javy Lopez
Ivan Rodriguez
Larry Walker
Furcal

I'm thinking IRod/Javy or Russ Ortiz here. What do you think?

of all of those I would most like to have Walker on my team, but he will probably last another round. Take Ortiz.

I would take Ortiz also. You have a heck of an offense right now, but your pitching still needs some help. I think Ortiz will be a lock at atleast 18+ wins this year.

I've got Pudge ranked over Javy and Ortiz was a product of a good offense last year (3.81 era :-o ).

I'd grab Pudge. ;-D

I'd also go Pudge. Someone will eventually realize that they need some offensive help and will give you a better pitcher than Russ Ortiz for him. He gets to play DH now, some, so he should have less wear and tear.

Originaly, I was going to say Ortiz, but on closer inspection, I think I have to say Pudge...... I agree that you could draft him and then sometime during the year, trade him for a better pitcher than Ortiz.....
