Morneau, HIGH RISK, HIGH REWARD. Lots of 1b talent out there, could be had in the draft too as most other players will keep a 1b.
Dunn should have a decent year, but not w/ those pitchers to choose from
Sizemore??? Really, wouldn't have even typed his name w/ the other players
CC will get you wins
JJ will get you all around cats (has a shoulder injury so keep an eye on)
Haren will get you all around cats

I would go w/ CC & Haren, unless JJ's shoulder checks out ok before deadline.

Thanks for the input!

My draft picks suck this year... I used my 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks in trades! So I start in the 4th round! ..... This may change your advice>,, or maybe not!..... I just think I need to land a 1b going in to the draft... morneau and dunn id think would be gone by 4th rnd....

What do you guys think?

Thanks again!

look at the rest of the league...do they have a 1b already locked in? If so, do they have a backup? In drafts, the early rounds especially, you take best available regardless of position, but don't reach on 1b's as they are a plenty this year. Several people may shy away b/c of injury concerns (as should you consider).

Dunn is an easy keeper.

I think I'd rather have an ace going in (either Sabathia or JJ) than take the risk on Morneau.

Dunn is the easy choice. I would go with Sabathia over Johnson for the final spot.

AS long as Morneau doesn't have any setbacks before the season starts him > Dunn. But you could go crazy and keep him and Dunn and load up on bats. If you really feel like you want an arm I think it's CC for sure.

You could always punt catcher and keep all three and drop Mauer. Just a thought.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5
