1B/3B Miguel Cabrera 2B Chase Utley OF Carlos Lee SP Johan Santana
Candidates for last two slots (in order of preference): SS/2B Alexei Ramirez 1B Adrian Gonzalez OF Curtis Granderson OF Corey Hart OF Andre Ethier OF Jacoby Ellsbury SP Clayton Kershaw SP Matt Cain RP Brad Lidge SS Troy Tulowitzki
Some thoughts: • Alexei's low K total last year (61 in 480 at-bats) makes him my frontrunner, and the 2B/SS eligibility will help if Utley isn't ready to go at the start of the season. • A. Gonzalez has the best numbers of those left, but he has a high K total, and I would have a logjam at 1B when M-Cab loses his 3B eligibility in a year. However, we don't have a utility slot, so that slot can be filled later in the draft (that's how I got Gonzalez in the first place). • I have those four OF ranked fairly closely. Should be able to redraft one of 'em. • League also pays out to winners of each category, so it pays to punt a category to try to dominate. For example, I punted steals (Ellsbury was a late pickup for keeper potential) and won HR and RBI.
Any help is great! Leave links for me if you want.

i agree with your top 4. if you are planning on givin up on speed ditch ellsbury and granderson, love them both though. back to back 20-20 for hart is hard to pass up but i think you should go with gonzo to add to your power and run production guys. if you plan on goin for saves at all i would go with lidge. if not go with ramirez and you have great power up the middle.
