Tex
Ethier
Bruce easy keep
Butler
Rollins

Only keeping 5, you can't keep a unproven Jennings.


Totally agree. Bruce is about to explode. Butler may not provide the pop ur looking for at 1st but not many hit 320. get ur power elsewhere. And Rollins because of lineup,park and position scarcity is a must

agree with this,just to add some more insurance on these picks. I'd considered Weiters as well, but not over any of these guys. You should be able to land him or any of your other guys w/ the 5th spot.

For the record, I'm a Tiger's fan and love A Jax, but not over these keepers above. He'll have another solid season, but nothing like the first half of last year.

Alright, I think I'm going to settle on :

Teixeira
Ethier
Rollins
Butler
Bruce

Do you guys see any common denominators here? Every year I play I always try to have a balanced team (category wise), and never do well. I'm thinking about punting a category or two, now i say this a lot before every season but have chickened out by draft day. Do you think this is a good idea, which category would you punt if you had to choose?

Hey guys, Yahoo! Fantasy baseball opened today so I'm beyond excited! A manager in my league traded away all his picks last season, and doesn't pick until like the 8th or 9th round this year. He has interst in trading with me as I knew my season was over early last season so i traded for picks.

He wants to trade Jose Bautista to me for picks and a lesser keeper.

Who would you replace Bautista with in my keeper list (its in my signature?). He said to tell him the picks i'd give up and the players that I 100% will not trade for Jose. Usually I don't do this but he is at work and can't access the site.

I have numerous picks in numerous rounds. I have 2 picks in the 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, and 21st rounds, and 3 picks in the 10th round. If i do this I want to trade picks in rounds where I have more than 1, and I want to include 1/3 in the 10th round.

So I was thinking if I did this I'd offer a 10th and a 5th or 7th and _________ for Bautista. Who out of Teixeira, Butler, Rollins, Ethier, Bruce would you trade in order to get Bautista... or would you stay put?

Thanks,

Steve

Dont' trade for Bautista on what he did last year. Trade for him expecting a sizeable regression.

Otherwise, keep Bruce/Rollins
C-Doumit, Salty
1B- Fielder
2B-Pedroia
SS-Reyes
3B-Longoria
CI- Morneau
MI- Kipnis
OF- Myers Jennings Heyward
U- Ellsbury, B. Upton, Bruce

SP-Price Fernandez Miller Wheeler, Kluber
RP-Grilli, Farquhar, Crow, Veras
