:-S

Right now I'd go:
1. Arod
2. Wright
3. MCab
4. Longoria

Braun won't be eligible at 3B in 09.


I dunno man, you never have a change of heart compared to a draft and a trade offer? I think that I feel less inclined to reach in a draft for some young guys but when I get offered a vet for a kid in a keeper, my true colors come through and I'd rather stick to a guy like Longoria over ARam.

If I had Longoria even in the preseason, I would've taken ARam first in a draft but doubt I'd deal Longoria if ARam were offered.

I am still confused. If this is the case then you are really ranking Longoria over Aram.

I'll go with this:

Arod
Wright


Aram
Longoria

Chipper
Atkins


My leagues have 20 game previous season eligibility which eliminates MCab (otherwise he's easily #3).

I prefer Aram to Longoria since he has a longer proven track record and is only 30, but it's close. Chipper is just too injury prone to place higher in a keeper and I'm not a believer in Atkins if he leaves Coors Field (in a trade or in future seasons in FA).

So far in my 12 team keeper league I have traded away Chipper, Gordon, Longoria, Reynolds in various deals. And have ended up with Aram and Iwamura.
