I got these guys for sure
Brian McCann
Mark Teixeira
Chase Utley
Ryan Howard
Matt Holliday
Corey Hart
Justin Verlander
Francisco Liriano

Clay Buchholz(Bos - SP)
Tommy Hanson(Atl - SP)


Two more from below, also eliminated guys I wouldn't keep to begin with. Couple different ways to go. I don't know the settings, so that could make a difference. Points, h2h, how many teams, how deep pitching will be(depending on other teams keepers). If you need saves, Nathan and Bard(assuming he gets the role) would make sense to keep. Sizemore could be a risk/reward pick, although i wouldn't. If you wanted another Sp I'd go Garza. Kinda thinking out loud, but I hope this helps.

David Ortiz
Bobby Abreu
Carlos Quentin
Grady Sizemore
Shaun Marcum
Craig Kimbrel
Daniel Bard
Matt Garza
Ervin Santana

you could always keep Axford ahead of an OF; in my leagues you don't usually see closers except for the top few being held. If this is a roto league I like Gardners sb's to go with the rest of your power hitting roster. There are always saves to be found during the season; notsomuch 30 HR guys or 40 sb guys. Sizemore certainly is going to be an interesting draft pick choice; how far from the top few rounds will he fall. Still I'd rather keep good hitters ahead of a good closer

The first 11 are easy. The 12th depends on when you have to announce keepers. If you have time to wait, I would probably go with Nathan as the 12th as long as he hasn't had any problems in rehab. If he has some setbacks, I would probably keep Gardner since you could use some speed.

For the 11th, unquestionably Gardner. For the 12th, Bard if he gets the closer job or Nathan if he looks fully recovered, otherwise E.Santana.
