I agree with Kinsler and Howard as your final 2 keepers.

It's usually nice to keep a pitcher but your options for hitters are just too good to pass up here. Just focus on your pitching staff early in your draft.

I think it would be wise to hold on to at least one arm. Since you're keeping Fielder, it's not an immediate need to hold on to Howard, although I completely understand why you would.

I just wish there was a better keeper prospect at pitcher. Latos obviously jumps out right away. He's certainly a talent and could be worth holding on to. I think the dark horse keeper prospect at pitcher is Neftali Feliz. He has nasty stuff, and will eventually end up in the Rangers' starting rotation--it's only a matter of time. It could be a bold move to keep a "closer", but trust me when I say he won't remain one for long.

Yea, I might try and resnag Feliz early in the draft if I can. Closers in this league score pretty highly if they are the top tier.

:-? Howard is one of the few 40 home run threats in baseball today. He is a legit keeper.

I know, I know, you're right. If someone doesn't get kept on his "list", it's probably the oft-injured Kinsler.

Don't be surprised if Howard doesn't come through this year though. I'm probably the only one bold enough to say that, haha.
