1B Pujols, Morneau 2B Utley 3B Longoria SS Alexei Ramirez OF Braun, Holliday, Crawford SP Lincecum, Zambrano
I need to pick 5 of the following:
OF Pence, Bruce C VMart SP Kazmir, ESantana, Volquez, Scherzer, Kershaw, Price, Verlander
To begin with I would not keep Zambrano, so with that said, I would keep the following:
I'm leaning toward VMart (that'd allow me to have my starting lineup complete), ESantana and Kazmir...and two out of Scherzer, Kershaw, Price, Pence, Bruce.
First off that is a hell of a team you have there. I hope this is a shallow league or the rest of the owners will be playing for second.
I would drop Zambrano from your keeper list and add the following, in addition I would try to deal because you are going to be dropping some tasty talent. I am sure there are some starving owners who would be chomping at the bit to make a deal for some of your talent. I would be looking to deal any pitching combos outside of Lincecum.
Pence Bruce VMart Santana Kazmir Price, is worth the last keeper spot IMHO. But again I would be looking to deal your pitchers.
Crawford is too overrated throw him and injury risk C-Zam back and go with some upside. You have an illegal core of players which affords you to take some risks. If they pay off youll walk away with your league, if not you have a good chance of winning anyway. All you'll have to do is draft closers. Try like crazy to grab Wieters with your first pick and backup Martinez think work on filling out any utility spots and closers.
Check my list above with the changes I've made, do you have room to keep all I've recommended from above?
