For group 1: I'd keep Ichiro and Ethier for sure, then Hanson cause I think he'll be an ace this year, then probably Dan Haren, and last I'd take Lind. I think Lind will bounce back more than Pablo, so I'd take Lind over him, and I also don't think you should pay for saves by keeping Soria.

For group 2: Definitely keep Zimmerman, Gallardo, and McCann. Then I'd go with Rasmus, who I think could have a big breakout year, and then I guess Hunter. You at least know what you'll get with him over Vlad or Bay, and again I wouldn't pay for saves with Franklin.

As for which is better, I'd take group 2 because they have the best overall player with Zimmerman, better range of positions with top catcher and 3B, and higher upside with Rasmus and Zimm rather than the aging Ichiro and unpredictable Lind.

I like Group 2 better basically because it has the best players.
