12 team, 6x6 category H2H 3 year keeper where player moves up 2 rounds from previous year, can only keep 1 player from top 5 rounds (they move up only 1 round), FA can be kept in 18th.
Categories: BA, R, HR, RBI, SB, KO-BB for hitters; W, L, KO, ERA, WHIP, AND SV+HD for pitchers Lineup: C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, (3) OF, UTIL, (4) SP, (2) RP, P
My keepers I've pretty much decided on: Zimmerman - 3rd Liriano - 5th Nelson Cruz - 7th Pedroia - 8th Alexei - 12th Wieters - 14th Wandy - 19th Stanton - 20th Colby Lewis - 22nd
My last spot I've been switching between Chris Sale in the 18th, Daniel Bard in the 23rd, or not keeping either and rolling with 9. Also have Chapman in the 9th, Gavin Floyd in the 14th, Ryan Raburn in the 18th, and Papi in the 21st...embarrassment of riches.

I'd much rather have a big bat than a mid rotation arm, which can EASILY be replaced. How many 280/32/100 bats can you keep that late?
For your other selection Bard is definitely the best value by far.
Though I'm not in love with Wandy (and it's his last year of being able to be kept), he has some nice value in our league. People keep pitchers. Of the top SP: Halladay, Greinke, JJ, Lee, Lester, Price, Weaver, Hanson, Latos will all be kept...and those are only the top arms. (Scott 'Freaking' Baker has been drafted in the 7th round the past two years.)
Liriano in the 5th is borderline IMO, but that is where he'll get taken, if not slightly before due to above...now Wandy in the 19th is acceptable. I can post #4/#5 numbers from him I think.
It is a weekly lineup league so playing Papi is always an adventure, depending on R/L matchups. Add in the DH only option and he is frustrating. I think he is definitely a great value...something I'll need to think more about. I've considered him over Bard, but haven't been able to pull the trigger yet.
