I'd be keeping a totally different bunch than what you've got marked. Guess I'm not seeing the point in the 3 RP, maybe 1 if they get named closer. Drew would be a for sure keeper, even if that means keeping 3 SS's for the time being. Huff had too good of a year, probably same for Cantu.Not a big AJ fan, you mentioned up to 10 keepers; do you get replacement picks if you don't keep all 10? Provide some more info so the guys can give you the best help, looks to me like a rebuilding effort is called for...

I second this list.
In a 12 team league, I don't keep a C unless its a top 4. Even counting holds, I think the only RPs I keep are those that aree for sure closers. The rest should be able to be picked up in the draft.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

Sorry not a fan of Nady. And not a fan of keeping Tejada as a 3rd SS combined with 3 1B. You need to make some trades and clear out some of the SS's and 1B's on your roster. Preferably keeping Drew and Berkman and trading anyone else that you can get a good player for. I would target OF'ers and SP's. Or try 2 (or 3) for 1's.

And forget about keeping the middle relievers. There will be a couple dozen of them that break out every season and a couple dozen that collapse. Stay away from them and grab them on the waiver wire.
