agreed, any way to judge the players going back into the draft of which you can choose from? Or maybe you keep in mind that you will be getting earlier picks and try trading someone like Lidge and Oswalt for a better option. Or Ellsbury and Ortiz.

who said it was a shallow league? But agreed, less then 10 teams I take my chances on the draft and do not keep Lidge...especially if I can redraft him. 12 teams, I'd have to think about it, that's basically the top 100 gone.
So much depends on what type of league this is but I would def think about keeping Ortiz and Paps. There are so few quality closers anymore that I would be willing to keep Paps but only if this is a 12 team league. Ortiz is still a top 1B and depending on who else is being kept, Ortiz will give you nice numbers.

is Ortiz 1st base elig in this league? any way of seeing how many managers only kept 3 last year? Do you draft early or late in the 4th round of the redraft if you keep 3? all these plus the size of the league are important factors in making the final decision.
