I'd keep Tulo and Utley. Tulo is an obvious keeper from that group, and I prefer Utley due to position scarcity.

Thank you for that... I agree. I know I shouldn't be worried about Utley's patellar tendinits, but I am, on the other hand I know he'll be picked up immediately. Also, losing my ace is slightly unnerving.

I am weary of his injury too. I think 2B is deep this year...good late targets include Hill, Zobrist, Raburn, Nishioka, Walker

I would take the Tulo and the ever-consistent Holliday

You can almost certainly get Lee (or comparable pitcher) back if you want him with the 8th pick

Help with mine?

tough one.

I'd say Holliday and Tulo.. When you say "full roster" does that mean five outfielders? or three?

3 outfielders.

If I kept Tulo/Holliday, then I could pick up a pitcher in the 8th slot and maybe a 2nd baseman in the 13th...or the best available player on the board. I'll have to see who everyone in my league keeps on the 12th of March before I can really plan a draft strategy, but this helps!

I really think Holliday and Utely are going to be similar stat wise, with holliday hitting for a better average, but I just have a feeling Utley with be missing more games than usual this year and Holliday will be his usual stud self.

With both wins and quality starts as categories, I think it is a no brained to keep Tulowitski and Cliff Lee. One could make the case for Holliday instead of Lee, but I would keep the SP.

I would keep Tulowitzski and Utley. 10-team league, 2 keepers and you pick eighth the top 27 guys will be off the board give or take a couple who slip through the cracks. Pitching is deep I think you can get a deep staff without Lee and I just like that you are filling 2B and SS with power. Big early advantage when teams will be similarly stacked because its a 10-team league.

Help me out?

I am an Utley fan, but I just can't convince myself that if a similar position, I'd take him.

I like Tulo and you know what Holliday will bring.

Lend me your voice?
