We keep 10 players – draft 15.
Pick the top 10:
Carlos Delgado, Alexei Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Alex Rodriguez, Carlos Quentin, Bobby Abreu, Jermaine Dye, Jason Werth, Chone Figgins (2B Eligible), Kelly Shoppach., Rafael Furcal, Andre Ethier
Roy Halladay, Edinson Volquez
John Papelbon, J.J Putz.
Who should I keep?
7) A. Ramirez
Reyes and A-Rod are a great top 2 keeper tandem, and Quentin/Papelbon/Halladay aren't a bad 3-5, but I think you drop off some after that. I wouldn't be thrilled with Dye, Delgado, or Volquez in a keeper. That said, I don't trust the health or effectiveness of your older MI's (Figgins, Furcal), and I don't think Putz rebounded particularly well from injury last year. Also, if it's a vanilla (i.e., without MI), I'm not sure where the foursome of Reyes, A. Ramirez, Furcal and Figgins would play. I'd be looking to make some deals.
