16 Team Keeper, H2H, 8X8 Standard + 2B, 3B, BB / IP, QS, Holds
Here are my keepers:
C 1B Miguel Cabrera 2B 3B Jorge Cantu SS Jason Barlett RF Bobby Abreu CF Andrew McCutchen LF Jason Bay Util
SP Roy Halladay SP Matt Garza
My first pick is the 10th overall in a keeper redraft. How would you rank the following players based on my needs? Obviously, a good many of them will be gone, but you never know who. I'd like to either fill my 2B or Util slot with my first pick but would take a SP if a good one fell to me.
Kendry Morales Carlos Peña
Gordon Beckham Jose Lopez Howie Kendrick Ian Stewart Rickie Weeks
Hunter Pence Carlos Quentin Nate McClouth Denard Span Carlos Lee Jason Kubel Raúl Ibañez Michael Cuddyer
Yovani Gallardo Chad Billingsley Javier Vasquez
K-Rod Andrew Bailey Brian Wilson

Carlos Lee, Beckham, Gallardo, or Billingsley would be no-brainers (in that order) if they fell to you. Carlos Lee, while a little older, is like a 4th rounder in this format, why the previous poster didn't even put him in the top 10 of his list is beyond me. Since you have designated LF/RF/CF spots, it dilutes corner OF's a little, and if you got to keep these guys for a long time, I would consider Beckham over Lee since he'll fill a need at 2B.
While you said you'd like a SP, I would select most of those batters you mentioned ahead of Vasquez. Those closers would be at the bottom of my list since your league really devalues closers since half of the pitching categories are dominated by SP's compared to RP's (IP, W, K, QS).
Of the top of my head, I'd rank the rest of the players like this:
7 Kendry Morales 10 Carlos Peña 1 Gordon Beckham Jose Lopez Howie Kendrick Ian Stewart Rickie Weeks 5 Hunter Pence 4 Carlos Quentin 9 Nate McClouth Denard Span 6 Carlos Lee Jason Kubel Raúl Ibañez Michael Cuddyer 2 Yovani Gallardo 3 Chad Billingsley Javier Vasquez K-Rod 8 Andrew Bailey Brian Wilson
