My keepers were Miggy, KJ, Bautista, Zim, Pence, Swisher, Bell, Hellickson, Hudson, Lee, Morrow and Wainwright
If you did not choose option 1, who would you add to the keepers?? 12 keepers, $130 max salary. Without Wainwright I have 11-$116
1B M Cabrera 26, C Pena 13 2B K Johnson 9, B Roberts 21 3B J Bautista 9, R Zimmerman 10 SS E Andrus 7, J Rollins 18 OF C Coghlan 7, J Damon 8, T Hunter 14, H Pence 12, N Swisher 6 P H Bell 6, F Carmona 5, J Hammel 4, J Hellickson 7, D Hudson 9 I Kennedy 4, C Lee 17, B Morrow 5, J Niemann 8, A Wainwright 12
Andrus at 7 isn't a bad deal. Locks up a scarce position with a potential 10-40 candidate if he starts hitting for a little bit more pop this season.
Napoli Howard Kinsler Zimmerman Andrus Kemp, Gutierrez, Cruz (DL), Soriano, Bay, Abreu A.Gonzalez, I. Stewart Halladay, Marcum, Kuroda, B. Anderson (DL), Leake, I. Kennedy, C. Lewis, Pelfrey, C. Richard, Slowey, B. Wagner, H. Street, O. Dotel, J. Axford.
Tough blow, I feel your pain, (if you answer my question you will know what I mean) I would let him go, and try and get him late in the draft at a discount, I have done it with several players the past 3-4 yrs, that have gone under the knife (Josh Johnson, Tim Hudson, Edison Volquez)
As for your last keeper slot, I agree Andurs (weak position) would be the guy, HOWEVER, Clif Lee @ $17 is not to bad of a price, he will easily go for double that in your auction.
