Well, to pile on here, I also agree with your 9.

Depending on what other options might be out there, would consider throwing Jeter back and keeping Dan Hudson.

Can I pry your brain for your logic on this call?

Seems silly to keep a closer, especially one who is not a top-5, does it not?
I know Jeter had a down-year last season, but you've got to consider that at the very least his avg will jump back up to .300, giving him a line of approx. .300-10-60-100-15. That's pretty solid at SS, a very thin position.
I would say that the SS position is far thinner than RPs, hence keeping a top-5 SS is a better bet then a top-10 closer...?

I would keep the best player. If you don't want Axford, keep Sizemore.
I'm not into keeping old players on the decline in a keeper.
