I am in a 10 team head to head yahoo .keeper league My first 3 keepers are Alex Rodriguez, Buster Posey, and Andrew McCutcheon. I need to pick one of the following: Kendry Morales, Ubaldo Jimenez, or Jose Bautista? Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Welcome to the Cafe! I would keep Ubaldo as your 4th keeper. You already have three hitters, so a SP would help provide some balance, especially one of Ubaldo's caliber. Morales is a possibility, but I feel Ubaldo has a little more value. Bautista's higher value comes at 3B, and you already have A-Rod.
I'd go with Kendry Morales. Bautista is too much of a risk, and there's lots of top pitching out there. Everyone says 1B is deep but after the top 10 or so it falls off fast and most of those are going to be kept most likely.
Tough choice. I think I would keep Ubaldo. Having an ace is usually pretty nice to have in a keeper league. I like Bautista but he is kind of a wild card. Morales should be fine and I wouldn't have a problem keeping him over Ubaldo at all, just my preference would be the SP.

I prefer hitters. Jiminez should be good but he didn't have a great 2nd half at all last year. Bautista had a superb year last year, but I'm not convinced he can do it again. I'd go with Morales who should be healthy and ready to go.
hmm 10 teams with 5 keepers, that means that all the elite hitters will be gone since its a hitter heavy league, meaning pitchers are plentiful, I say keep Morales' .290-300. 30hr bat over Bautista .260 30 hr with long cold streaks throughout the season, I doubt Morales will go all out to celebrate a hr again.
