Aside from Kendry, Price and Werth, the others are pretty bad. Was your team THAT bad that there werent 3 better guys to keep?

Im not sure about your question. If you mean, what players you should try to draft, then its simple.

Try for the best available players. If there's a top 15 1B available (unlikely), grab him first.
If not, then target SPs. Try for High Ks (180K+) and decent era/whip. Try to round off your OFs.
The new Japanese SS/2B is someone to consider grabbing. He's like Jose Reyes-Lite.

Your first few rounds you want to grab keeper-worthy guys that may be available. You are light on keeper-worthy players, so other teams probably had to drop some. Jump on these.

My general strategy is that I absolutely MUST grab a top 1B, and even a 2nd at utl if available. I dont think Kendry is a top 1B so thats why I mentioned trying to grab a better one if available. Then a power 3B if available (unlikely in your keeper). Possibilities are C Johnson, or McGehee. I ignore 2B, and SS because power guys in those positions are rare, go fast, and usually cant match power guys at 1B, 3B, & OF. So its best to grab speedsters in later roundsfor those spots. By Round 3-4 Im usually grabbing SPs and such.
I love mock drafts.

maybe the reason that he is keeping those guys is price? maybe he paid 55 for hanley last year or kept him for 2 years after paying a high price and it just isnt worth the price to keep them.
