1. Which player would you keep for 3 years? J. Santana or N. Feliz? Even if Feliz is in setup role, he will earn some points. Those dual eligibility pitchers are a plus in this league. J.A. Happ is projected to have the most reliever points this year!
2. Which player would you keep for 2 years? Aramis Ramirez or B. Roberts? Both are around the same age. I have Zobrist for my future 2B if I keep Roberts for only 1 year. I currently have ARam is my only 3B option but I will draft another. Current roster:
C Suzuki 1B Butler 2B Roberts 3B ARam SS Zobrist (at least for this year - then he may lose eligibility) CI ? MI ? OF(4 spots) Braun, Bay, Ellsbury, Choo U ? SP (5 spots) Haren, Verlander, Johan, Dempster, Webb RP (5 spots) Soria, R. Soriano, Feliz, Happ, ? Bench (4 spots) ? Minors Strasburg, Stanton
Happ is a SP is he not, but nice with dual eligibility. I would keep Johan for 3 over Feliz and ARAM over Roberts.

I would go with Feliz and ARam also. I feel like Santana's going to fall apart in the next 2 years while Feliz is on the rise. Also, with Zobrist ready to play 2B for you, keeping ARam seems to make sense to me.
Normally I would not keep a top prospect longer than an established borderline stud. However, with Verlander and Haren locked up for 4 and 3 years respectively, I was willing to take a chance on Feliz for 3 years and keep Johan for 2. I also have Strasburg as one of my minor league players. Therefore, I can sign him to a 4 year deal after this season. So, do I take a chance on the young gun Feliz or put my faith in Johan staying strong for 3 more years?
