Here is my roster, with rounds and keepers indicated. I feel like I did well, and having Bourn to plug in for weeks I need SB is great. Obviously Pierzynski isn't all that great. If Quentin comes around, maybe I can use him or D Lee to trade for something I need later on in the year.
C Pierzynski (21) 1B Fielder (3, Keeper) 2B Pedroia (1) 3B Sandoval (18, Keeper) SS Drew (13) OF Kemp (4, Keeper), Sizemore (2), Cruz (5) UTIL D Lee (8) BN Quentin (12), Bourn (17)
SP Greinke (11, Keeper), Kershaw (6), W Rodriguez (7), Baker (10), Romero (15), Liriano (16), Matusz (20) RP Soria (9), Cordero (14), Franklin (19)
Very solid offense...I would look for some help in the pitching department. I would look for some guys that on strong teams that can you easy wins, without having to pay too much. I drafted Liriano for my team as well, I definitely think the guy is going to have a 2006 like year, so your pitching isn't in dire need of help, I would just look for a guy who's going to give you close to 15 wins. I just read your Quentin comment and I couldn't agree more, use him to deal for a pitcher as soon as he gets hot.
This team is nasty, and you got some great deals with the keepers. I agree about upgrading rotation though. If I were you, I'd shop Baker/Franklin or Romero/Franklin to see who'd come back. I'm questioning how long Franklin holds down the 9th for the Cardinals, but to the right owner given Franklin's numbers last year, the deal could look ripe. You might could get a "lesser" closer and a slight upgrade of a starter.
I don't have much experience with keeper leagues but to me it looks to me like your offense is set. Good backups. I'm liking Quentin this year and like said above, I'm also high on Liriano this year. Let's hope he doesn't get injured. I think your pitching is pretty good too. I think Baker's going to have a great year.
As you said, I would trade away Quentin for some pitching once he gets hot as your OF looks set.

Depends on how valued Jeter is your league. In mine, he went really late. Even with a slight regression from last year, he's a big upgrade over Drew, so I would try to get him after Drew goes on a HR streak.
